4R100 In gear but wont move

Hey all. My sig is up to date with the truck details.

Its an auto with 297,000 miles.

Yesterday, I stopped at a store, when I came back out and fired up, I put it in reverse and it was like I was nin neutral. Nothing. Dropped it in drive, 2 and 1 and stillnothing. I went to shift it back to park and got a grinding noise. So I shut the tuck of, then put it in park. I fired it back up and no issues. Left there and went just arund the corner and stopped again. When I got back in my truck, same issue. Turned it off and back on and it shofted and moved just fine.

Lately I have been having problems getting in PArk. I have to drop it and pull it up again and again to get it in. Then when I get out, I have to reach under my dash and push the cable all the way into Park. I know the bushings are gone on the shifter, I have 2 new ones in the glovebox just havent installed them. Could this problem be the cause of the first somehow?

no codes? sounds like the trans is going out. but replace that bushing and see what happens. my vote is you need a new trans.

either soilonoid pack is bad or trans went out, with those miles I'd say your second trans is done (most likley its already be re-built)

Trans was rebuilt less than 75,000 ago.

Could it have gone out and still work fine now? All that happened sunday. Monday I had no issues at all.

So replacing the bushings on the shifter might very well fix it?

Or solenoid pack? Time for anoobish question, is this the same a a valve body? Maybe putting in an aftermarket valve body?

Ok, now I know it has to be electrical. I just got in, went to start it and it wasn't in park all the way. (Bushings). But, as I let off the key, my Tcase motor started activating! It cycled 3 times then stopped. I cycled the ign 3x and it did it each time. I just unplugged it and will track that down later. This dang back has got me running so late!

I'm guessing for now there's a short or something in the steering colomn where I've had it apart a few times that might be causing the issues.

It has nothing to do with tranny. Tcase is going to neutral, that is why there is grinding when you go back to park. Unplug tcase
