Default 02 Transmission not going in gear

Well, I just got my truck back from the dealer while they were diagnosing the front end vibration I've had for a while. Found out both of the CV axles need replaced and one of the tie rod ends were bad. Got it home just fine, and went to leave later that night and backed out of the driveway and I couldn't get the shifter past Reverse on the column. It also makes a weird grinding noise when I put it back in park. The only way I could get it in Neutral was on my 4wd shifter on the floor. Even that was a pain, because it was grinding gears when I tried shifting through 4wd. I'm thinking it would have to be something to do with the linkage. I'm not sure why this suddenly happened after I had it checked. I don't think the dealer messed with linkage at all, but there's no telling. I'm going to call them later this week and hopefully get an answer. Anybody have an idea why it isn't wanting to go past reverse?

This might sound like a stu...silly question but it's an SLT...is it a manual trans?

That's what I figured it being an SLT, but the way you described the issues they were symptomatic of a manual. . What you're describing is almost the same as trying to change gears in a manual without using the clutch.

That being said, I've never dealt with a linkage problem where it sounds like the valve body is keeping it stuck in 1st gear. Just not likely.

I think it's safe to rule out the linkage and concentrate on the valves. That's be a Dealer issue. Not necessarily an expensive issue but in internal issue none-the-less.

Depending on the mileage it's entirely possible that a trans service and a power flush would cure it...should I cross my finger's for ya?

Thanks for the info. I don't know anything on transmissions. The only problem is I'm gonna have to load up my truck on a trailer and haul it 30 miles to the dealer just to have them look at it now, unless it's an easy fix.

Turned out 2nd gear was going out so we had to put a rebuilt trans in it.
