Postby ahillworks [OP] » June 6th 2009, 8:56pm

If you can help great if not I understand. Went home for lunch parked the van in the drive way which is on a hill. Went to go back to work van started no issue. But the van will not go into Reverse - Over Drive - Drive - 2 or 1 it will go into park and neatrual no issues but other than that nothing. Any idea what it may be? Thanks.

The fluid level may be low.
Being parked on an incline, the fluid may be at one end of the pan and is not getting sucked up.

It would be best to push the van to level ground to check the level to avoid overfilling.
General Motors master tech from friendly Manitoba.

Perfecting the fine art of more cost, less performance, since 1987!

are you sure the trans is actualy shifing from park to neutral?
( you can tell, bcs it will start rolling in neutral, since you are on a hill)
it may be that there is no shifting at all,in which case, thinkof 2 possibilities:

1. linkage disconnected
2. the pressure of the car weight pushing on the parking pawl in the trans is too strong, and the linkage broke because of that.

AutomaticThe purpose of an Automatic Transmission is similar to that of a manual transmission, the auto tranny's primary duty is to allow the engine to operate in its narrow range of speeds while providing a wide range of output speeds.
