Customer Question
96 Monte Carlo drive...

96 Monte Carlo drive 1 and 2 and regular Drive will go but revs up to 3000 RPMs and only allows me to go about 20 miles an hour no reverse no overdrive please help

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Monte Carlo yourself? What have you tried so far?

Adding tranny stop leak the only thing I've tried and if I can fix it myself I will but I'm trying to find out what's wrong with it give any ideas

Mechanic's Assistant: How old are the hoses? And what driving conditions do you most often encounter?

I am pretty mechanically inclined got nothing to do with the hoses and I don't think I have anything to do with the driving weather conditions either I just want to know if you have any ideas of why this would be our won't be causing this to happen is to pressure sensor in there gone bad or is there a throttle positioning sensor or something going bad anything like that where is my tranny shot

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I was driving the night that it happened cuz we're running fine and I slipped off the side of the road to a little bit icy didn't hit nothing didn't bought them all just drove right back Oaks the ditch was very not steep and since that happened I didn't have reverse or drive and my engine revs way up and I can only go about 20-25 miles an hour

check the fluid level of the trans to be sure it is correct.

from your description, it sounds like there is a failed clutch pack inside the trans. reverse and high gear are in common with the clutch pack. you may damage the trans when you ran off the road.
