Chevrolet custom deluxe: 1982 custom deluxe chevy truck transmission

This answer was rated:

1982 custom deluxe chevy truck transmission works when truck is in the air but will not move when on the ground. It acts like the it acts like the emergency brake is on but it is not. I changed the filter it was bad but it still won't work. what could it be?


this is bad

the transmission is burnt up and is sending fluid to two different places,causing the transmission to bind up,there is no easy fix for this,the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced

Tim i don't understand if it is turning in the air. where else can the fluid be going. joe

it is spinning the wheels because it is not under pressure,,i would think the low and reverse clutches are burnt out
