Please post the complete machine serial number (PIN) with your reply. I will need it to help you better.

Do you have any warning lights flashing? (Assuming they all come on at startup.)

Is the RED LED indicator lamp next to the fuses on?

Check charge pump pressure.

Remove a transmission filter and crank engine but, do not start it.

If oil does not pump out of filter, pump drive has failed.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I will do that. Would it still stop instantly if the pump fails?
Mechanic: catmastertech, Technician replied 1 year ago

Yes. If the pump drive fails, it will not move anymore.

I just thought it might be a slow decline Thanks. I will check the pump
Mechanic: catmastertech, Technician replied 1 year ago

If it was the pump that failed and not the drive, you will find metal in the filter if you drain it.

It could move slower but, it would likely be one side and not both. You have two pumps, one for left and one for right.

The drive loops are completely separate.
