While parked to check a map. I put my transmission in P. When I started back up the the shifter moved but the transmission would not go into any gear. After having it towed home ($150.00), I searched the forums. I removed the transmission range sensor and moved the axle it sits on that goes down in the transmission and it would move with difficulty but with clicks as it moved.
I replaced the TRS and cranked the car. The shifter moved through the right gear settings. (In reverse the backup lights came on.) But the transmission still did not engage. HELP! Any ideas?

Any bubbles on the trans fluid dipstick?

If Linkage is OK (put the car in R, lights should come on in the rear), may want to pop the line off up front on the trans cooler, turn the car on, see if fluid pumps out. If no fluid=transmission pump quit pushing fluid through the system=time for a trans rebuild.
