fluid is a little on the purple side,doesnt smell burnt,fluid level is fine.i was leaning toward the solenoids in the tranny...being po states it wouldnt upshift when parked 2 years ago.
she wont go into park,i believe that would be in the colum.

also found out last night the water pump is toast,pours out the weep hole.guess i need to reair that pump,drop the pan make sure theres no large objects lying in the tranny pan...ect.
the check engine light isnt on,ill have to see about retrieving any stored codes manually...if that can be a pretty good mechanic....just not familiar with these dodge trucks.

just trying to figure out if a tranny issue would make the engine cut out....or is that a whole different problem.sounds like she isnt getting any fuel when i put it into gear.
