    Sounds to me like the pump is no longer working. Unfortunately, unless you have access to a pressure gauge for the trans, don't know how to test. Another possibility I guess is a failed torque converter, but usually they will make noises and other warnings. A friend of mine had a similar thing happen with his Exploder a few blocks from my home a few years ago. He was driving fine, went through a dip in an intersection and when he started to accelerate the engine revved and the truck slowed to a stop. Was like he only had park and neutral. Towed him to my house and we pulled the trans and found the pump had broken. Put a replacement pump in and was good for a few months until he got in a wreck and totaled the truck. The problems with the coolers in the early 90s was not leaking, but clogging. The design used very small holes in the tubing for the fluid to flow through and those holes tended to clog restricting flow. That in turn tended to reduce flow to the planetary sets. That lead to more wear and debris that would clog the cooler more. It was a nasty feedback loop that wound up destroying the trans. Replacement radiators solved that problem as did bypassing and using a large external cooler. Regular fluid changes helped as well.

    Been away for a little bit. Here's my 98 2wd 5peed August 2016 on top of Mt Roosevelt Scenic Overlook, Rockwood, Tn. Sad thing is shes long gone. I sold her to a good friend and he didnt even get a year outta her before he blew it up. Didnt know anything about it till months later. He could have made some of his money back, but never let me know she blew. That Pathy got me into obsession with the R50. Damn do I miss her. Sent from my SM-S367VL using Tapatalk

    Hey guys my Q finally produced the leak behind the distributor. As a lot of you know this is a common problem over time. There's a number of things it could be and doing a pressure test doesn't always give you the location of the leak as in my case. I should've replaced all the hoses and gaskets back when I done the TB/water pump/ valve cover gaskets, but lazy me didn't and now I'm paying for it. My leak was coming from either intake bypass hose or temp sensor housing. Very hard to tell. I also needed to replace my knock sensor since day one. I was actually gonna do the easy knock sensor move and noticed antifreeze under the front and plans changed. In a way kinda happy cause I didn't really want to do the knock sensor unless it was done right anyway. As far as gasket/hose kits what do you guys recommend? I want to replace whatever needs to be replaced while I'm in that area. Thanks hope everyone is having a great year so far. Sent from my SM-S367VL using Tapatalk

    That is strange. So park does engage? And every other shifter position acts like neutral? Are there any noises at all? It’s hard to imagine what could cause forward and reverse to both die. I’ll look in the FSM for mine to see if there is a condition detailing the loss of both forward and reverse. Give me till tomorrow. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Unbelievable find with 32k miles. Can't wait to see what you do with this thing. It's still a baby!
