It seems the transmission is not engaging into any gear whatsoever! I checked the shift linkage which seemed to be intact (I will investigate further). Checked the tranny fluid which was at a correct level and very very clean. I was having no issues with the transmission at all. No slippage, hard shifts or anything. Very frustrating to say the least! Im open to ideas on this, but my fears are the transmission is dead, although its funny that I have had not one bit of trouble so far. Is it possible my tranny just had an "instant death" like this? Or should I be looking elsewhere? My bus is a 91 Wayne Chaperone built on a Chevy G30 van chassis..

If it is a transmission,. it will be cheap for your bus.

I'm hungry!
