Question about GMC Sonoma
It has to be a basic problem-I would double-check the TV cable going to the trans pawl for an alignment issue, it is best to set it up in neutral position and go from there. In addition, check the trans fluid level, and the harness connections-if this was an operating trans when it was removed, it has to be something that was not hooked up correctly, nothing else has changed.

There are several things you need to check. First, are you sure the fluid level is correct? This must be checked with the engine running in PARK. Also check to make sure the electrical connectors at the transmission are connected securely. The electric solenoids cannot direct the hydraulic pressure to engage the clutches if there is no connection. Is the Service Engine Soon light coming on with the engine running? If you forgot to hook something up, the light will come on and set a fault code to let you know.

Welcome to Fixya
Bleed the clutch system. Here's the procedure. Try this and if this still doesn't fix the problem then you may need to put a shim on the flywheel. Keep bleeding the clutch until the pedal gets hard. If there is any sponginess at all then keep doing it until it feels uniform and has resistance to it. Sometimes bleeding a clutch can take some time... especially if you have fine bubbles in the system.
Thank you for using Fixya!
