does it not have any gear...no reverse?
did it make a noise before it quit?
tell me all you can
please tell me
does park work..does it lock the truck so it wont move like it is suppose to?
here is where you stand
1-if it don't go to park,,the problem may be that the transfer case is stuck in neutral
2-if it does go into park,,we know that the manual valve is moving and the case is in gear,,this tells me,that the problem is either the torque converter or the front fluid pump is damaged.....adding the fluid while running would not cause this,but,if the converter wasn't all the way back when installed,,it would damage the pump...it has nothing to do with the fluid or adding it
Is there any way to tell if the coverter is all the way back by looking through the inspec tion hole without pulling the tranny?
no..not now,,,if you installed the trans...there should have been about 1/4 in. play between the converter and the fly wheel after the trans was bolted to the engine andbefore it was bolted to the flywheel...and should turn freely

not a half in.. around a quarter in....the converter gos into the trans befor installing it...it gos back deep into the pump...then,,when you bolt it up to the flywheel it will pull up to the flywheel...yes,,it will have this much space with it ubolted from the fly wheel..you cant check that now,,,sense if it did damage the pump,,we know it will go back
and you must have some transmission repair experience
