I hate to be a jag, and spam, buty I'm really screwed, and need help ASAP

my sister took my truck out, now all of a sudden it starts in bothe Park, and neutral, but in park I can only rev to about 2000 (compared to redlinning it), reverse goes no where (it revs but doesn't back up), neutral is a drive, so are the drive gears.

what do I do to fix this, or at least be able to get it to neutral where I can push it back and get it out of the way so I can get my aunts car out of the way

1) why on earth would you redline your engine unloaded??? you must have a death wish for it. sounds like you floated some valves-very dumb thing to do.
2) sounds like sis trashed your tranny. lesson #2-don't let anyone drive your vehicle.

hope it's under warranty!

Damn, I have the exact same symptoms with my truck. You must have a Gen II V6 huh? Mine got toasted with me hauling a bunch of stuff for friends in the last few weeks. It started out by just being harder to move the shifter, now it moves freely but r is like a trans brake and n gives me first gear.

I'm going on thurs to talk to the guy that rebuilt my trans last.

I only run it to the red in park or nutral for a second once in a long while, and as soon as it hits the red I stop.

Usually my sister is good in my truck

Ck your transmission cable adjustment. You could disconnect the shifter linkage at the trans {with the engine off} and manually shift it from under the car. manually shift the trans to park and adjust your cable to fit.

88 Dak, This is no shifter problem. It's probably the first gear band or some clutches frozen in place. It is deffinitely an internal problem.
