silverado won't go forward

Asked by Mar 03, 2016 at 10:40 AM about the 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 3 Dr LT 4WD Extended Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a silverado z71 4 x 4 that all of the sudden locked up and won't go
forward.  It will go in reverse fine and move but it is frozen and won't go
forward.  Is the the transmission or transfer case or could it be something
else?

Will it roll if pushed in neutral?

It rolls but it feels like the front brakes and on and resist it.

You may have to jack the rig up and block it, then try turning the drive line by hand, try to feel for anything hanging up during the rotations, if it all feels good then start it and put it low gear and see if it rotates freely, if not then I would say you have a tranny problem.
