Good afternoon,
I have a 98 v6 auto and last night I replaced the transmission and transfer case with a used one. Today I finally got around to putting back the drive shafts and was ready for a test drive. Behold, the transmission won't shift. I checked all wires and they are connected and the shift link does move. Although, I have no actual shift between revers an drive. Nothing in 4wd either. Not sure what I did wrong or did I just get screwed on a bad transmission?
