    I have a lot of questions for you 1 does it move when put in reverse 2 Is the emergency brake set 3 was the emergency brake set If the answer is yes to the above you might try giving it power while in reverse. Sometime the e-brake is set in wet weather and the metal fibers in the brake pad will rust/weld themselves it the drums/rotors and they will break loose while moving in reverse where they might not allow it to move forward at all. If that help great otherwise I would need a bit more info

Do you have a bad axle shaft? It can turn the inner axle inside the joint and not move the car as if the trans is bad.

I bought a tired 1994 gmc jimmy with a 4.3 vortec motor with 243,000 miles on it and just want to get more driving out of it. it is also 4wheel drive 1 problem i ,m having is that the oil pressure reads 40...

Do you have the electric shift 4wd? If so, start by checking if there is power to the actuator on the transfer case.

ok you hear a noise in the dash and a noise under the truck. there will be two noises under the truck one puts the transfer case into gear the other locks the fromt axle. raise rear axle let truck idle in 4x4 look under truck is front shaft moveing if yes the 4x4 motor on the front axle is not working remove dissasemble clean lube reinstall. if the shaft does not turn do this same procedure on the elec motor on trans case..good luck you can replace your oil pump it may help vehicle
Looking at the motor from the front, it is behind carb and to the right of the distributor. It has 3 wires on it.

96 caravan 3.0 , have had it two weeks now bought from a cousin who had trans rebuilt. Test drove it, everything was fine. seems the trans was starting to require a little gas to move but after you got it...

If it happens in all gears then the out put shaft is worn. If it only happens in reverse then find out from your cousin where he had it repaired from .It might be still under warranty. If not take it to a tranny repair shop sounds like oil pump in converter may be weak 0r reverse gear or its idler is worn.
