2002 Chevy S-10 Ran out of Transmission fluid. Put fluid back in but only go 15mph. Will Rev up to 6000 RPM when trying to drive. When problem started it did run hot.
I'd bet if you check the fluid level properly as Owner's manual or Repair manual requires (hot), go through gears, measure in drive but Emergency on or helper on the brakes. You will probably find fluid is still low. Screen in the transmission pan may be clogged due to the "abuse". But it may also be burned "toast" as some say. You probably? have a leak? or you haven't checked fluid consistently. Seals may be bad. Temporarily I believe Bars leak stop has a Transmission seal leak stop. Consider mileage, is it time to trade vs new or (very lightly) used transmission?May be best to find very lightly used engine and transmission as a unit. Change out would probably be easiest other than emissions connections and compatibility. How is the rest of the truck's condition? A lightly used comparable may be your best alternative. Do you have transmission fluid lines connecting to the radiator? Is the coolant "oil-ly"? You may have a leak in the radiator internal fluid cooler. If so you need a new radiator or install separate transmission fluid cooler.
