Stranded Hope someone can respond fast.

2000 Sport Manual

I was going about 55mph and tranny stopped pushing all gears. I pulled over and turned off the engine, waited a sec and started.

All 5 gears and reverse now engage but act as if in 4low.

I removed the front drive shaft entirety at front axle and at t-case.

Behavior did not change. All gears work shift properly but rpms go up so that 30mph gives me 2000 rpm in 5th gear.

Did you check to see what position the transfer case linkage on the side of the case was in?

Almost sounds like the linkage broke and it went into neutral and then low.

Not sure how that would be possible, but... ?

I drive on the right side, what's wrong with you?

I agree with the Mailman. Did you maybe run over something that kicked up and hit your transfer case linkage?

Is your transfer case hot to the touch? I don't know why/how but if the shifter fork tongs somehow broke maybe it's slipped into low somehow?

Would that matter if the front drive shaft is removed?

Yes, they're both connected to the same transfer case.

If its in 4lo for whatever reason its going to drive slow regardless which driveshaft you remove.

Anybody can take advice if it doesn't interfere with their plan.

If he removes both, it wouldn't drive at all.
