    Pressing on gas, but car does not move in all gears.

    Hello, I have a 2006 Cadillac Escalade, and what is happening it that when I press on the gas the car does not move. Either in Drive, Reverse..nothing!.. I was told it may be the transmission, but I just can't imagine the transmission breadking down so soon. Someone else said it could be the Gear Shift linkage, or the axel, but I'm not sure. Please help !!

    are you hearing the linkage move when you move the shifter (it is best to try this with the engine not running) also how many miles is on your lade?

    Yes, I do hear the linkage move when I shift, and I have over 100K miles. I actually had this fixed since I posted this thread, but just yesterday it happened again, so not sure what is going on. The transmission guy said it may be the water pump that blew, but I will keep you posted. .......Thx

    if the tranny is making a noise when you shift the gears then it is the transfer case. p.s find a different transmission guy cause the water pump has nothing to do with a transmission.
