    The most probable cause I've been seeing with the 4R70W transmission is the forward clutches flaking away thus causing way to much clearance and resulting with the foward lip seal to rip then a no engagement condition . The other is the foward clutch cylinder will split at the top with the same issue. This is for a no foward condition.
