Re: My truck is just staying in one gear.
If it's a manual transmission (stick shift), it would usually be very thick, (drain very slowly) and of a gear oil viscosity, and would smell much differently than engine oil. Don'r run your truck with engine oil in the transmission, it could be costly. If its automatic transmission, then it would usually be of a reddish color for ATF( auto trans fluid).
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Blew an oil cooler line or a transmission cooler line? Low transmission fluid would keep it from moving. Trying to drive it to long with transmission fluid about empty, would burn up the transmission. Oil pressure won't affect the transmission.
Stop any oil leaks as the transmission requires exacting oil pressure to do the job. Any leaks reduces the pressure so gear changing is affected. Besides when do you know if the oil level has dropped below operating level and will be insufficient for the gear box.
If auto you refill through the auto dipstick, If manual you will find a plug approx 1/3 - 1/2 way up the side of the g/box. The engine oil drain plug will be infront of the gear box (should be a 14 mm bolt) located on the engine sump.
Kindly tell us whether your engine starts up properly to idle . If yes , then your problem is with the transmission system or with the clutch plates . If the clutch plates are too empty , the gear would be almost stuck . If the car is in N-neutral , try pushing it and while moving slightly try to change the gear . Engine oil and transmission oil should be checked up regularly .
At present situation you will have to have your gear system unjammed or opened up by a professional and have your gear box replaced or checked for jammed gears which is pretty time consuming and difficult job . Else you will have to replace the clutch plates and youre ready to fly again .
Thanking you ,
Hey bro, pumps might be gummed up. Easiest thing I can suggest is go through all the gears manually to empty the pumps in the auto transmission. Then try it again. If no joy, then I'd change the transmission fluid and toss in some lucas oil transmission fix. Probably run you 40$ for the oil and lucas and take 30 min. It has saved my **** a few times and might just work. If it doesn't then you probably will need a new transmission, it is cheaper to replace it than to repair it in most cercumstances. Try the oil first, it's cheap and quick. Don't forget the lucas. And make sure to go through all the gears manually to empty the pumps. Cheers bro.
