Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I'm here to help 365 days a year, but not every hour of the day. I try to prevent delays as much as possible. Please understand I am not there and can only advise based on what you tell me. Let's get started.

4R70 or 4R100 transmission?

Will it not roll in park and will roll in any other gear?

Do you have a hydraulic gauge to perform a pressure test?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I believe the 4r70 and it will change gears just wont move
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 5 months ago.

Will it not roll in park and will roll in any other gear? So you are saying in R-N-D-2-1 it will not even roll?

Do you have a hydraulic gauge to perform a pressure test?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
It will not roll at all and do not have a hydraulic pressure tester
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 5 months ago.

Since it will not roll at all this means the transmission is stuck in park. Scotch the wheels and set the parking brake and have an assistance shift gears inside to see why under the truck on the drivers side, the link age is not responding.
