2005 Silverado Stuck in Park

Asked by Jun 29, 2015 at 12:49 PM about the 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS Short Bed 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just finished changing my transmission oil and filter on my 2005 Silverado, 5.3L engine, 4L60-E automatic transmission.  I also drained the oil from the torque convertor.  After topping off the fluid level I started the truck up and moved the shifter lever through all the gears.  Then I shut it off and removed the jack stands and wheel chokes and started the truck back up and attempted to back up.  The truck would not go.  I then shifted into drive and once again it would not go.  I then put it in neutral and attempted to push the vehicle and it would not budge.  It acts like the brakes are on.  The emergency brakes are not on.  What is the problem????

By draining the torque converter the transmission will take 8 to 10 quarts of oil. You have to run the motor and shift the trany threw the gears to circulate the oil. Initially, only add 3 quarts before starting the motor. Check fluid level as you are adding trany fluid, foot on the brake and shifting threw the gears. Check level while motor is running, park, or neutral.
