time of death...2:37 pm on 12/29

It was too much for her to handle. I blew my transmission. I still have reverse but no foward gear. I am hoping that it is just 1st gear though...

DANG! you all of a sudden have NO luck!

try draining the fluid and replacing it.....it may have sucked in some water....

you have a pretty new truck for the tranny to go!

Try putting it in 2nd gear on the shifter... If I remember right this will by-pass 1st and force it into 2nd. Just a thought.

All his issues are related I am almost 100% sure.... Now is just when the symptoms are showing... But everything should be repairable... Just might cost a few $$

Yup, I got her towed home by kevoo...hopefully I can just change the fluid and hope for the best. After talking with chris, I have eliminated a lot of things.

1. Tranny is not blown
2. Definetly has water in it
3. So,ething may be sticking...

Auto's use an electronic valve body to put it in second with no first at all fro slipery conditions. If he puts it in 2 and it doesn't move, it's more than just first


Sucks man, hope it's not too bad.

Sorry to hear about that.

If you plan on replacing, look up Kormex Transmission on EBay. Good price, fast shipping and helpful

So what could it be if 2nd works, reverse works? I haven't tried to do any driving after it clunked.

I'm praying a good flush will fix it...
