hello I had to leave the house

when you put this into gear what happens is their any noise ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
None, everything works fine but like a manual car that ran out of clutch...
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

ok if you put this in park can you spin the wheels or if this is on the ground will it roll in park gear or no.

can you hear this shift into drive or reverse gear any changes in the engine rpm's when doing this ?

Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

did you by chance adjust the throttle cable on the transmission ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No haven't change or did anything to the cable,
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
we have the car up in the air on jacks... So when put it in gears and let the break pedal go the wheels should starts to roll..the gear change also doesn't even change the rpm because when shift into gear the rpm should kind of change a little bit but it doesn't
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
You can change gear and everything but nothing...I wanna say when I rev it up past alittle almost to 7thousand rpm when in the air the wheels starts to move like nearly crawling only
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

ok and the fluid level is ok ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yeah fluid is good
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

do you have access to a set of line gauges to measure line pressures ?

I can send the testing for it to see if this is a dead transmission

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Which line to measure?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
You mean to measure the oil line?
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

let me get the info for you cause even if the cable is hooked up it will still drive but shift functions will not work correctly

Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

yes this will involve measuring the actual atf line pressure

Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

ok

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Okay so I gotten a time to check it out...nothing ....so after the last time we chat , I went ahead and check the whole motor of each and every wires , connection and drain out the ATF and poured in some new fluid...I let the motor on for almost an hr just to get to temperatures ...and lucky out of no where it started to crawl.i give it a it more gas and surly it went it moved...that was a relief but still it's going rough on the rpm. I took it for some drives and it almost normal but expect that it changes gear at high rpm like around 45-55 thousand rpm...and there is times if I give it a bit too much gas it feels like slipping again...you think I should reflush the ATF again?
