Transmission problems with new install

1872 Views 21 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  98eldo32v
I needed to replace the transmission on my '03 Deville. The new tranny is all bolted up and filled with fluid to the middle of the cold mark. But when I started the car and shifted through all the gears I'm still got getting anything out of the transmission. I pulled the cooler lines to see if any fluid was pumping, but I'm not getting anything comming out of the lines.

I'm about to pull all my hair out. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I could have done wrong or what to check next? And yes I did put the torque converter bolts in.

you've got to get the transmission fluid up to running temp ... you won't get a correct reading by just turning the car on and checking

go drive a bit and then come back after it's warmed up fully and then check while running in park on a level surface
