the guy i bought it from told me it was rebuilt which could be a lie.ive checked the fluid and its still bright pink/red i even took the shifter off and shifted into gear with the rod thats coming out of the trans but it still wont go.
I wouldn't suspect the rebuild is a lie. I'd suspect whoever rebuilt it screwed something up. They don't normally do this in the natural course of events, especially if they've never been opened.
even with the car off it wont go into gear i can put it reverse and drive and push the car around like its in nuetral.
You can do that with almost every automatic ever made.
im starting to think that its blown but i know these transmissions are electronicly controlled but all thats goin to it that i can see is grounds, the speedo cable and cooling lines....
They are not electronically controlled. The O/D is electric but the rest of the functions are hydraulic/mechanical.
any suggestions will be appreciated thanks......
ps..im going to be doing a 5 speed swap in a couple weeks
My best suggestion would be to do the 5spd swap now. No point in spending a bunch of money and effort on something you're going to change anyway.
