Do you may an you can't get the column to move???put half qrt fluid in it see if it helps.your linkage could be in a bind. Or the transmission is failing

Rodney Smith

Its get got cause no colinig coming off the fluids


It was moving fine...but transmission was slipping in 1st and 2nd gear...now it just revs up and wont go anywhere...it will but high rpms and wont go but like 5mph. Reverse works fine

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

I was reading something about the governor celenoid and sensor...and also a band adjustment??

Rodney Smith

It could be a modulate valve. Its internal.ig f the fluid won't help.it sounds like your pumps are burned.not ed new transmission or rebuilt sorry.hopefully I'm wrong


Thank u much!

Rodney Smith

Good luck
