My 2001 4l30E tran has lost all gears, it has almost 60k on it and I been trying to fix the tranny leak for a month and it just still leaks, sometimes less, sometimes more. was slipping, but it had cherry juice in it, but 2qt low and i would drop it and try a new seal with gasket sealer and that still didn't work(gasket ripped in half), now it is just RTV and it is the lowest leak right now since i started to fix it.

If you know where it's leaking and you've tried to fix it in place. Sounds like it's time to pull it and fix it correctly.

If not replace it. Are you saying that it's not working now. All gears gone?

Have you been replacing the lost fluid?

There are two plugs int eh bottom of the pan. You need to use a fluid transfer pump into the higher of the two plugs while the truck is running.

Fill till the fluid dribbles down your arm. And thank Isuzu for not putting a dipstick on these trannies.

If after a refill it's still got no gears....

Start looking for a j-yard tranny. The rebuild on one of these trannies is very costly.

Yes I have, been as low at 2 1/2 qts. i been doing it that way, but the engine running, since it it pressed in the tranny, it would make a huge mess, right?

Sounds like you need to start looking for a replacement tranny. Try a few local j-yard salvage places and the try www.car-part.com.

Good luck
