A weak pump will not build any pressure, and not shift any gears. I have a small leak in a check valve, and if my truck sits for a while, it takes a bit longer once a gear is selected to actually engage that gear (reverse is longer).

There is a pressure port on the side of the transmission. If you make up a hose with a gauge on it, and thread it into that port, you can see how much pressure there is.

Depends on the gear, I can't remember the specs off the top of my head, but should be in the 90-120 psi range

Mine did the same thing, TC was fried and the pump was in a dozen pieces, no warnings, no nothing, came to a red light, hit the gas and went no where..... $2200 for a HD overhaul.... money well spent so far!!
