Major AODE trans

I just swapped in a AODE I had bought that was rebuilt in place of my burnt up factory AODE. I put in a 3200 stall and everything went in fine but I fired it up and put it in reverse and the motor acted like it engaged but the car didnt move.. Same in every drive gear.. I need help please

They might of missed installing the gear pin. It's like a metal piece that picks the gears . When i did my own jmod I didn't put it in the right place so I could only move forward

Where would the gear pin be located? I took the old AODE out and swapped everything over off of it to the new AODE

Re: Major AODE trans

Did you fill the convertor with oil before you installed it?

Filling the transmission will not fill the convertor.
The pan/oil level is a lot lower than the inlet of the convertor.
The convertor gets its fluid supply from the transmission pump.
You may have damaged the convertor and possibly the transmission too.

They should have provided you with instructions?

Could it possibly be the pump?

Maybe if you didn't run it very long and it didn't damage anything.
If you ran it very long then it may be pumped full by now.

Anything is possible.
Drain the fluid into a clean container so you can maybe reuse it, then remove the pan and check for excessive metal particles.
There will likely be some metal, usually in the form of very, very small flakes and black dust from the clutches. Anything more than that would lead me to suspect serious damage.

You need to drop the pan and make sure the rooster comb is engageing the manual valve on the valve body, if it is then you need to hook up a pressure gauge to the port on pass side of trans if you have no pressure then it's ether a bad pump or you didn't get the converter all the way in... I build automatics for a living, if it was rebuilt it should have new bands, sprags, etc, a bad over run clutch would do that aswell..
Make sure there is pressure before you do anything else

If there is pressure then the pump is working, but you will need to make sure the pressure is correct. Not sure what PSI is required.

If there is not pressure then the pump has failed or you have blown a seal or gasket.
