On the cheap, check the transmission filter, valve and or modulator.


Is it overfilled? Transmission fluid has a cold and hot level. How old is fluid? You said you filled it up. Was it so low that it wore all the clutches?

Might make sure the its not tranny fluid related, may need to change to a high millage type that is compatible with your rig.
