Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I'm an independent contractor here at Just Answer.

Are you saying you shift to D or R and it acts like neutral?

Will it not roll in park but will in any other gear?

Thanks, ***** ***** shift linkage is fine that means its a mechanical issue since the electronics will not prevent engagement. It is possible the input shaft or pump was damaged by the converter during the engine swap. Did you check to see if its low on pressure. Are you able to perform a line pressure test and or scan tool diagnostics?

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.

You should see a rating screen if I have posted an answer, not for an info request.

Your rating is my feedback. If I don't get feedback from customers, I will not be able to continue helping customers here.

Rating me good, bad, or not rating at all does not effect the fee you have paid nor does it close the post.

Follow up/Reply as many times as needed.

How do you test line pressure at dr when the transmission does not engage
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 1 year ago.

You would test it in drive to monitor the pressure, This will tell you if there is pump or seal issues if its low.

I like to stay in contact with my customers that appear not pleased, still working on the concern, or have not rated yet. I assume you were not pleased with my help. I hate that you have spent money to get an answer but left not happy. Can you tell me why, or can I help more. If its more help you need just reply and we can pick up where we left off.

Thanks Chris
