This is a photo I didn't ever want to take. The wife called me yesterday morning and said the "Burb" won't move, sitting half way out in the highway dropping off our youngest Daughter. I got there and she had moved on the shoulder and got it into a restaurant parking lot. If you start it up, it will move then stop like it's in neutral. shut it off and wait a couple minutes and it will move again. I'm hoping it just needs the tranny filter and fluid changed. I will do that next day or 2, I loaded it under it's own power, took 3 start and stops.

Did the rubber band get a knot in it?

Sorry, just popped in my head, hope you have a 5 minute fix.

Well......... It probably is the filter plugging up. BUT......... If its that plugged, you've got something coming apart inside. I've seen the scenario too many times. If it isn't obvious when you drop the pan, cut the filter open and see what's in it. Might as well start looking for a trans. Looks like it will probably be a 4L60E trans. You might try www.car-part.com to check availability of used.

I just rebuilt my 4L60E in my 1995 Tahoe.  The complete rebuild kit was, including clutches and plates, $105. The rebuilt torque converter was $78. Trans oil $55. Trans out and rebuilt the first day. Trans installed and driven away the 2nd day. And for that the thieves at two different "transmission" shops wanted in excess of $2200. Go figure.

Yeah, I know all about those "theives", I are one. I'm going to start ordering parts from you, they're cheaper. Maybe I should move to Florida too, it looks like it pays better than Ohio. What were the prices on the shift solenoids, tcc sol, and EPC? How about bushings, washers, thrust bearings, pump vanes and rings, band, and a valve body kit? Then factor in the beaurocracy and utilities on top of it and cover the warranty for at least a year or more. Then you'll understand where us "thieves" come up with a price!   :wallbanging:

Hey Brian, that looks like a FORD pulling your burb?? :rolling:   :poke:

 

On a serious note I do hope it isn't to expensive to get it fixed.  I had an F250 a few years ago and the tranny went out in it.  It cause about 2K to replace it.  Unfortunately it does happen and usually at the most inconvenient time as well. :wallbanging:

That's one of our F250 Super Duty's, it's a 1999 with around 510,000 miles on it and that 7.3 Trubo is the best Diesel ford ever had in their trucks. Dad has a 2001 with a little over 250,000 miles on it. I will work on the Burb tomorrow and see if I can repair it.

I forgot how heavy the Burb is until I started up the ramps and the truck, trailer, ramps and Burb moved forward about 3 feet, I forgot to chalk the front tires of the truck and trailer tires. It lifted the back of the truck enough to to slide it forward.

Well, I haven't had a chance to change the tranny fluid yet. But i did fix the problem for my little Bride.

 

I got her this, this morning,

It's a 2002 Yukon XL SLE. It's got 175,000 highway miles on it, I know the owner and he drove it back and forth to San Antonio to work, so I'm not afraid of the mileage. He has had it serviced at the local GMC dealer and I have seen all the service records. Never been wrecked and I only found one scratch on it. Best part of it is, It's Paid For, I can't have car payments right now. With 2 Daughters looking at College in just 3 and 5 years, I have to worry about that instead of new cars and trucks.
