:)I just bought a 1975 Pacer.It's in great condition EXCEPT the transmission.I put it into gear and it does nothing.It' over full with transmission fluid.I can see the linkage move.But no movement in any gear.What should I check?
Did you test drive before buying? it worked good then? when you say I see linkage move are you reffering to linkage at firewall or actually looking at transms arms.? Do you have the "Park" engage? , cant move car if in park.? is that OK? Go under car do a visual on the arms on transm. Remove tranms pan drain fluid , clean, CHANGE filter,, refill NEW correct fluid & level.. Also; start car,, then move to "N" rev up engine about 2000 rpm. 8 seconds ,,, drop back to idle,,then observe when pulling into " D" if it tries to move then it could be the internal pump is bad. Do the fluid change LAST..
