Customer Question

JA: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the brake switch?
Customer: 2005, yes i checked it
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: it depends on possible cause, checked fluids, took shift cable off and manually put it in gear, cheked to see if it would start in any other gear
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: when it first happened it was hard to shift from reverse to drive then heard a loud metal clunk coming from under driver seat

Did you drain the the transmission fluid to see if there is metal in it?

Can I get the last 8 of the vin to pull the transmission schematics for your vehicle

5E336217, fluid looks and smells fine, im wondering if it could be transfer case, sounds like its shifting from 2wd to 4wd though
Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.

when this happens and when in drive and the rear drive shaft is NOT moving at all the problem is either internally in the transfer case or the rear planetary gear set in the rear of the transmission has failed

its best to remove the transfer case and with it in park see if the output shaft of the transmission is locked if it IS locked the transfer case has failed if that output shaft WILL turn when in park then the transmission needs to come out and be rebuilt or at least the rear planetary gear set replaced
