Before you spend any money on part have your code read. Where I live most auto parts store will read your code for free. Over the last 20 years I have had my transmission act up three times and each time it was electrical not mechanical. If your vehicle has a check engine light it usually has one or more codes. It will help you narrow the search. Just an example truck would not shift at all and speedometer quit working. Speed switch could have been but it was the fuse to the speed switch. Speed switch was not getting any voltage. Van I had shifted hard into gear MAP and TPS. Sensors send info to ECM and it send info else where such and the transmission. Try to find out what your code is it will help you narrow your search.

SOURCE: My 2002 chevrolet 2500hd 4 wheel drive will not

I would check the wire harnesses for damage (pinching, cuts and such) from the transfer case. There may be damage from the trans install. Also fuse panels both under hood and interior. Since no lights are on it is probably a fuse or the harness is disconnected.

SOURCE: Slipping transmission

It just needs serviced. It could be Loose bands or just need adjustments and a Torque converter needing service. If the fluid level is good when checked then take it to a transmission shop and have it checked. It could be something as simple as a Fluid change and Filter replacement.

Hello, I have a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 5.9 4x4. A couple days ago I was coming to a stop and I felt the truck kick out of gear then go back into gear. At least that's what it felt like to me. Its been doing...

Could be the filter to valve body is not 100%.I would add fluid as a test,if the trans is happy after the increased fluid level,then it is sucking air as the fluid shifts forward on a stop.

Clutch or Transmission?

Whining noise is worn gears or low on transmission fluid. It after reading your post, sorry to say but you were low on transmission fluid and your transmission needs to be replaced. You gear box has seized and every time you release the clutch even in neutral will kill your engine. The transmission shaft may have seized on the bearings in the transmission case, regardless you need a new or rebuilt transmission. Good luck friend and sorry for the bad news. Keep me posted.
