    This morning went to get in the truck and go to work as I always do. I crank it up, release the parking brake, put it in drive.... And nothing. I park in the garage on a flat surface btw. I ease down on the gas pedal and it felt like it wanted to go but still didn't move. It actually felt like I was power braking it. Anyway, I reset the parking brake and then released it again thinking maybe it had hung up. Nothing. I put it back in park, then back in drive and it started moving like normal. I pull out on the street and I hear a very faint whine from what I assume to be the trans. The whine slowly went away as the truck warmed up. Scratching my head a little. No check engine, or any other warning lights are on, no pending codes. This was the 1st time it's happened. Anybody experience this before?

    And aren't these transmissions sealed? Not that easy to check the fluid? I've actually never paid that much attention to it
