Hi Welcome to Just Answer! What does the transmission do?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The transmission does nothing. The truck does not go, but the engine starts. Transmission had water in it so he dumped the water out of it and changed the filters and put in new transmission fluid.

It Should atleast do something when it is put in gear even if there was water in it did he check the linkage?

What do you mean by "checking the linkage"?
