Just want some direction. If it has to come out, no sweat. Just wondering before yanking! Thanks for your input.
1993 Chevy Caprice 9C1
no shift on a 700r4 means govenor... but it is in a year range to where it might be an early 4l60e... does it have a cable that goes up to the throttle body from the passenger side of the trans??? if so, then its a 700r4, and id check the govenor... if it has an electrical plugin on the passenger side of the trans, its a 4l60e... if that be the case, drop the pan and inspect for debris... if none, it may be as simple as pulling the valvebody, and freeing up some valves (no govenor), or replacing the shift solenoids.
now, if ur not real familiar with transmissions, id take it to a trans shop and have them do a full diagnostic.
