Customer Question

I have a 1994 Chev Tahoe, starts fine, drove this am great and parked it at work, now will now go into reverse or drive , when I step on the gas the engine just revs
JA: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?
Customer: No gas hog and it starts just fine.
JA: Are you fixing your Tahoe yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No I have been waiting for a tow truck for 40 minutes , but I thought I would try to see what perhaps could be the problem by looking you guys up
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: not that I can think of.. I am in one city and my husband is 700 kms away so was trying to trouble shoot things, but I am a great nurse not a mechanic.

Did you check the transmission fluid level with the engine running?
