gear but same results. Even reverse wouldn't move.
I shut the truck off and back on and it runs good

Check the transmission fluid or do a flush on it. You could also try the Lucas tranny fluid thickener. If that’s not it then it could just be a worn out transmission.

Checked the transmission fluid and it's good. Havent flushed it yet. I will have to try that and see if it helps. Thanks for the help though.
