Q: Truck has a hard time moving and no 2nd gear.

asked by on

When I drive, the RPMs are high, but the truck is having a hard time moving, and I have no 2nd gear. I changed the throttle body, but the problem remains.

It sounds like there is a problem with your transmission. I would take the truck to a transmission shop that can pull codes on the computer and better diagnose the problem.
