It was originally a 4x4 but someone pulled the shaft out. the guy at the quick lube said I needed to get a new front sill, but to keep oil in the case till I did. I did keep oil in it. but it hasn't been driven for a week and now when you put it in gear it rolls like its in neutral
no it stays in park
yes, but im at work now. I can around 4:00 central time. will that be ok?
I will get back to you around 4:00 cst
the problem we have is the rear driveshaft connects to a shaft in the transfer case that connects right to the back of the transmission and if the truck will lock on the parking lock and NOT roll it shows the transfer case is still physically connecting the rear drive shaft to the rear of the transmission so to say
so it will NOT roll and lock on the parking lock ?
when shifted into 4HI or 4LOW it will not move at all ?
can you see if it will do anything in drive ?
we are down to a transfer case failure or a transmission failure
adding fluid to the transfer case will not fix the transfer case if the case has failed it will need to be rebuilt or replaced
but see if it moves in park
I know I keep asking but it makes a big difference if it will lock and not roll in park on the parking lock as that will tell us if its the transmission or the transfer case
ok that is showing the transfer case IS physically connected and the problem is the transmission has internally failed or an internal problem
the truck locks in park in the rear of the transmission NOT the transfer case
if it rolled in park then that would show there was a transfer case issue where the rear drive shaft was disconnected in the transfer case so to say
I just recently purchased a 2004 Tahoe with 155000 miles
