Ive called all the junkyards in my area, there are no series I supercharged anywhere..
So it doesnt look like i could get a similar ecm...
I also checked the cv'* are all the way in, transmission shop guy said i would likely hear some grinding if that were the case.
So right now am i looking at a tranny problem or an ecm problem?
The transmission shop i talked to said "nothing electrical will prevent your transmission from going into drive". He had me check my tranny fluid with the engine off and the engine on and in drive, he said the fluid level should drop, and if it didnt i likely had a bad torque converter or pump. Anyway the fluid stayed at the same level...

I guess my question is where should i start? I got this car as a project, im not looking to spend 2500 on a new tranny, id rather spend $1000 and 30 hours doing it myself!

I did a quick scan through your posts..,.

Have you verified your torque convert is indeed bolted to the fly wheel?

No i haven't checked that. Now i noticed in the past that there is a gap underneath where i assume regularly a panel goes, that exposes part of the flywheel, could i see the torque converter from there? Or does it involve further disassemble?

If the flywheel inspection cover is gone, you can verify visually by attempting to spin the torque converter with your fingers. Only reason I ask is, we had one guy here a few months ago similar situation your in and he had no drive also, come to find out, previous owner never connected torque converter.
