46RE issues, 1999 Durango 5.9L
I recently picked up a 1999 Durango, 5.9L 4wd. Grabbed it super cheap due to the fact that there was transmission problems. Now I have managed to drag it home.
The situation is, It goes into drive/reverse/2/1/ overdrive on/off seem to be functioning and also 2H/4H/N/4L and all seem to be ok, but when you hit the gas, it just creeps, it feels like a slip, but it never actually grabs gear, It kinda feels like driving through really deep mud. I have got it to shift into second, but even after the shift it still feels the same.
When I got it home, I checked the fluid and it was pretty much black and smelled like death. So, changed fluid and filter, and checked for any improvements, but it is still acting the same.
I was wondering if anyone had suggestions. I would take it to a tranny shop to have it looked at, but, it's hard to get it around, it's big and I hate to put money in it for a tow, cause I am not sure if it is worth my time yet.
The Check engine light is on, I don't have a code checker to find out what it is on for, I do plan to go down to the local auto parts store and borrow theirs, but in the mean time, just looking for suggestions.
