Sounds like the second. If this is the case, it sounds to me like
he's either got the foward clutch pack seal gone, or possibly even the
valvebody gasket (in which case, fluid would not be routed properly to
the apply devices, so the trans drops back to a 'neutral' state, )
If it's a clutch piston seal (or seals, ) then that's definitely a job
for a tranny shop. If it's a valve body gasket, you MIGHT be able to
But, I'd lay heaviest odds on that trans needing a overhaul.
You might try to use some of that automatic transmission stop leak,
see if that helps.
Thanks for the responses so far . But it is the second. When the problem
first started it would kick real hard in to gear but now its like its in
newtral. Put it in drive or reverse and its like its in park. I Know its

Ok, drain the fluid from your trans (If you don't know how to do so,
just ask, you'll need a filter, pan gasket, and enough fluid to refill
the trans, not to mention some Lucas transmission treatment, )
Odds are, if the tranny still rolls when cold, it's a bad seal, but
you might be able to nurse some more life outta it.
