Does a 46re dodge transmission require fluid for the linkage to move through the gears on the column? The pan is down and we noticed it was stuck in park at the column and on the linkage.

Ok, my son bought it and the drive shaft fell off while in gear when the seller had it. Since my son has bought a junkyard od ext because the splines where messed up. It went into gear when the guy showed it but not now.

Ya thats what i thought but i figured ot could be something simple. No metal or anything in the pan. Just the usual grey pasty magnet
