Hi,
I think it would be useful if we new what it is
your working on.

The next time you do something to your car that
involves fluids & sealing, just move the car outside & let it idle, it will come up to operating temp soon enough, you can't look for leaks while driving down the road.
Take care,
Rich

What vehicle? What trans? If you unhook the linkage can you shift it?

Hi Minace21,
Maybe you took the second part of my reply the wrong way, here's the reason I told you that.
I drained the oil in the F150 4x4, got up with the plug went to the bench wiped it off & set it down, started talking to someone & opening
oil cans/bottles, forgot all about the plug, put two quarts in walked back to the bench & saw the plug, suppose I didn't see the plug & put the other 4 quarts in & went for a ride,
what do yo think would have happened?
Rich

Gotta tell this on myself & another *********, while in the army I had to help a motor pool mechanic,change oil in some duce and a half's, well he set two 5 gallon pails on the fender, I climbed up on top of fender with the oil, he went under and pulled the plug and drained the oil, and a while later he climbed up on the other fender and we proceeded to pour the oil in the motor, I pulled the stick after about half the first 5 gallon bucket, nothing on stick, so we proceeded to pour and stick, pour and stick,etc. till both buckets were gone. I thought to myself this mother takes a lot of oil!
Have you ever seen how big a puddle 10 gallon of oil will make on the floor? I felt like killing him, not for the mistake,but for having to clean all that stuff up.

Have you tightened the line and filled it back up with fluid and tried it? If it still does it then its probably done for and needs to be re-built. Without fluid it does not take very long to burn them up.

help

Minace, let]s qualify this concern. When you say the linkage will not let it go into reverse or park and you have taken the linkage off and still can't move it into reverse or park, this should have nothing to do with running it low on fluid.

The trans may be toast, or not, but you should still be able to move it into and out of these ranges.

If the trans moves forward ok when it is full, but still won't go into reverse or park, you will need to pull the pan and see what has come loose or is missassembled.
