    I have a Stude Lark/w an Olds 3.3/4T60 motor/trans. Worked well for 4k miles. Then yesterday, after driving about 30 mi. I stopped for a stop sign and the car would not move when the light changed. Found out it will back up but, will not take off from a stand still. If I push it to about 25 mph, it'll drive until I slow to below about 20. Drove it at 60 mph for 10 mi. to get it home. What's up? Jim

    If I didn't know better (and I do) I would think this is some kinda Fancy Pants trick or joke.

    Don't blame me, I just bought it for the body! I want to find out what happened because both my daily drivers have the same trans. The fluid is up and red and when I shift into any forward gears, there is no noise and no attempt to drive. As I said, reverse works just fine. Jim

    Could you just turn the seats around, then reverse would be forward.

    So this is really a tech question about your O/T daily drivers.
