Rick, Thank you for taking the time to look into my issue.

I was thinking that the Clutch plates got hot and melted together. I have one last question if you know. Is a C4 transmission better than the AOD that is currently in the car. I will not be utilizing it as a daily driver once I get it all back together. I want the strongest transmission that will bolt right back up.

Thanks again,

Rick, the Shifter is on the Steering Column. It will go into Park, but when in Park and the motor is running the transmision is engaged and under a load. It does this in all positions, even Nuetral. The car will only go forward

The cable is hooked to the TBI. It may be broke intenally. I have yet to check that. If it came unattached at the Transmission I would think it would be hanging down. I will haev to getthe car in the air to see if the cable is moving when throttle is advanced.

Thank you,

If anyone has has this issue with their AOD before please advise.

I have a84 Tbrid 5.0. The transmission is stuck in Drive and under a load in all positions. I have no reverse only drive. I checked the TV cable and it is attached. The transmission was always very strong. Worked great one day next didn't.

Any suggestions?
