So much for doing a good thing...

Well I finally got around to putting my color match grill and 2003 head lights on my truck. After I was all done and happy with the out come I go to back out of my drive and put in gear.... Nothing. Put in drive... Nothing. Put in low and guess what?... Nothing. So I checked fluid and every thing looked good. Shut truck off and started her back up and everything was fine. Drove to the car wash and stopped at a red light same thing happens no gears shut truck off and it worked fine... Wth? Should I try changing fluids or is it a waste of my time?

there is no reason for a trans issue after just disconnecting headlights and removing the grille unless you managed to kink a line running to the trans cooler somehow, even then I highly doubt you would have this same issue

Transmission Range Sensor. Drivers side of the tranny. The sensor is behind the manual lever.

Yeah I'm pretty sure it shot yesterday I was looking at it more and it's slipped really bad out of first and when in gear or park I could hear the tranny making noises like the cliches were spinning and rattling around. 3k for a heavy duty rebuild with stallion 13" tc and bts valve body from my mechanic
