Check the fluid level,think you may have to much fluid,when you drop pan,you only loose like 3 and 1/2 quarts,the rest wont, come out of the torque converter,by my calculation,you are well over two quarts,,

Then y is DiP stick regiering full.

Not over full right on the mark


When hot?Or cold?



Warm it up,and check the hot line,

I would the truck being 2 quarts over for with that cause the truck not to move

whould the truck being two quarts over cause the truck not to move


Yes,to much fluid,will let biuld to much pressure,and not circulate through the tranny,could all so cause tranny damage,meaning damage the pump.

I did that


May be get lucky and drain some out,but check it hot,dip stick has a cold line and a hot line,the hot is way more accurate then the cool line.

Are you sure about the fluid not draining from the torch converter when changing tranny fluid. Doesn't make since to drain old fluid out just to to leave old fluid in and top PFF with new


Yes,do it on a daily bases,it will not drain from the torque,with out,vacumeing it out,or dropping tranny and pouring it out the torque converter.
