I would be looking at the pump , unless the trasn is real low on fluid?
How many quarts of fluid were installed?
You're right. I should have added the part about trans being low on fluid. If you don't fill the converter the pump will fill the converter which will result in the trans being so low that nothing will happen... If there wasn't enough fluid in the trans to begin with. My bad.
