It does have a chain. Does it go forward? I wouldn't force it though, if it is the chain then it's probably jambed in the TC and forcing it could crack the TC case.

Check out the linkage underneath to see if it is correctly engaged. Might be in between....

Mine did the same thing about a thousand miles before it completely blew up. Cracking the case into four pieces. Is it leaking at all? If so the chain streches when they get low on oil and then BAD things happen. Luckily mine broke while I was driving across country. I'm glad it didn't break in my driveway, where it would have been easy to fix.
