In need of alittle help.

Well, I just got my trans put in the truck and im already to fire her up, but it wont start. the start makes a loud cranking and then the batterys die. there is also a weird noise in the dash during cranking.

the other problem is, i cant get the dipstick tub to stay in the trans, and i did put a new oring on it...

I wish the truck would just work, its been sitting for 2 weeks by the way with the batterys un pluged.



On vacation from a truck for a year or...

Check the voltage of the batteries. Also check the starter wires to see if they are loose.

It sounds like your batteries are weak and need to be charged. But it could be loose connections as well. Use a volt meter and check the voltage of the batteries during cranking. If it drops below 10.5 volts I suggest you charge the batteries up.

Also make sure that your shifter is in the correct position on the steering column. Sometimes that can screw things up!! If it not on P or N you can have some issues starting...

You just rebuilt the trans correct. Your saying it is shifting through the gears but the truck is not moving. I would suspect that you have a t-case problem.

Can you have someone look under it while you have it in gear holding the brake? If so have them see if the driveshaft is moving, if it is then check your ring and pinion.
