Transmission problem V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles
The transmission won't shift into forward gears. This happened from one start to the next while the vehicle was sitting. The fluid is cherry red, never has slipped or shown any weakness. It drives wonderfully in reverse, but that is not very legal on the highway. I wonder if it might not be the little module (or whatever it's called) that is attached to the linkage on the side of the transmission. Is there something I can do to check it out myself, or is there something else it might be? I live in Mexico, and so my options are somewhat limited.
No, no codes have been thrown. This makes me wonder if there might be something physical preventing the lever to shift into forward gears. I have crawled under it and had my wife (with the emergency brake firmly in place and her foot solidly on the brakes) move the shifter through the gears. It slides smoothly into Reverse and Neutral, but refuses to go on into Drive. I cannot see anything abnormal, but I may not know what to look for. Any ideas? Thanks, Brock
P.S. Sorry for the delay in my responses. I do not have internet, and so have to use an IT Cafe whenever I can.
Thank you very much for your time.
