I see, thanks. Any line pressure at all?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
How would i kno that?
Expert:  Jerry replied 1 month ago.

The pressure would have to be tested at the test ports on the side of the trans. Line pressure is tested at the accumulator port. Please see attached diagram, thanks

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I would have to tow to a tranmission shop so that doesnt help at all.
Expert:  Jerry replied 1 month ago.

Did you expect something different?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
say the pressure is up then what?
Expert:  Jerry replied 1 month ago.

It would probably need a rebuild then. I will opt out and open it back up. Please DON’T REPLY to this post as that will lock the question back to me, someone should be along shortly, I’m sure, thanks and sorry I wasn’t able to help with it.

Does it make any noise when you put it into gear? Was the fluid level over full when you checked it?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No noise n fluid level good
Expert:  kalamykid replied 1 month ago.

Did you check it in park or neutral?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Park
Expert:  kalamykid replied 1 month ago.

Set the park brake and check it with the transmission in neutral please and see if the fluid level is low? The pump does not kick in with the transmission in park.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It is good
Expert:  kalamykid replied 1 month ago.

Was it at the same level as it was with the trans. in park?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Expert:  kalamykid replied 1 month ago.

Then the pump is not working. If the pump was working the fluid level should have dropped at least 2-3 quarts. I hate to say it put more than likely the pump gears have broken or stripped out around the converter. The unit will have to come out to do the needed repairs. Do you want to repair this yourself? I can walk you through doing it as well as help you get the parts you will need at a good price and save you a ton of money?

Can this work b done from the oil pan area?
How much do u think it would cost to fix by me?
By the tranee shop?
Expert:  kalamykid replied 1 month ago.

No. The trans will have to come out and be torn down. If I am right and you do the work it will cost you around $ 500. but a shop will charge you around $2000.00.
