Tranny?? OR 4wheel drive box??

I bought a lifted k5 blazer from one of the auctions i had at work. The engine is new an i thought the transmission was new. It looks pretty new an have a new torque converter. Anyway i got it running an its in my drive way but when i put it into gear it doesn't get enough power to move. Like i will put it in gear an sometimes it will just sit there without moving. Is this the tranny or the 4 wheel drive box. The 4 wheel drive box looks pretty bad in one place it looks like it was hot glued. How can i tell is what i am getting at?

Is the transfer case (4 wheel drive box) in gear? Needs to be in 2hi, 4hi, or 4lo to move... 2hi for street driving... If it's in neutral the truck won't move.

You mentioned a new torque converter, is it stock or some crazy racing 5000rpm stall converter?

I am not sure. My drive way is at a angle down an i have a small curb in the grass an i parked the k5 in a grass/drive way So when i reverse it will hit the curb an won't have enough power to get over it.

Will it move under it's own power in both directions on flat ground without obstructions? I'm just trying to figure out if your actually getting at least some power to the wheels or if your just coasting down hills...

Re: Tranny?? OR 4wheel drive box??

Ok, did you check the ATF level in your tranny? If your very low on fluid the torque converter won't be able to, uh, convert torque, and the truck won't have power. What your describing sounds just like when someone replaces there torque converter or flushes there tranny and they first go to move the truck and it takes a few seconds to build up pressure then moves. Except yours is low on fluid and never builds up the pressure... Just another thing to check I guess. Other than that I don't know what else it could be...

Thank you alot man. I checked the ATF when it first happen an there was hardly any, so i put some in an i relized as soon as i started the car the tranny pan was dripping down. So i dropped the pan an put on a new gasket an tighten it back up. i am waiting for my work to get some more ATF so i can use some. But i really hope it just is the fluid level
