Is there a safety feature on the car ? The car ran just fine and then nothing ..

Is the check engine light on?

No

When a vehicle will not move it is usually related to fluid pressure in the transmission. You said you broke a cooler line which would mean that you lost some fluid. Low fluid level would cause this. Double check everything around the areas that those parts were replaced. I would drain the transmission fluid and inspect. Lower the transmission pan and check the filter in the transmission for debris.

Ok but in this car is there a safety feature that would shut the transmission off so it won’t get wreck
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
After replacing the trans cooler line I ran the car put more fluid in .. so hearing the rpms go up when trying to put in reverse or drive the fluid is still low

Not that kind of safety feature. It will go into limp mode, but then you would have a code in the transmission control module.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
There’s no codes that went off

Then your transmission fluid is still low. How are you checking trans fluid level?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Filling by dip stick and checking (wiping off ) and putting it back in

Is the engine running when checking?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Have to
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Well since no codes have popped up I’ll go out and check the fluids again and run it like your suppose to and go from there

Just making sure. Was the engine or transmission removed?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
The car ran fine until i put the car in reverse and then drive and nothing ..... like I said replaced the trans cooler line and.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
But I try to put the car in reverse or drive the rpms do go up a bit
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I’ll look at the fluid again and see if the shift solenoid was bad would there be a code that would go off

Were the drive axles removed?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Nope

The car ran just fine and then nothing

Pull both trans cooler lines and point them into a bucket. Start the engine and make sure the fluid is flowing out of one of the lines.

Ask Your Own Dodge Question

Only run it for a few seconds then shut the engine off.
