    I'd probably disconnect the driveshaft at the rear axle and see if I can spin it. Cycle through transmission gears and transfer case modes to isolate the issue.

    Fix'd your quote OP. I was confused, like "why's my face up there?"

    Honestly, this happened on two prior vehicles of mine. A '97 Mercury Sable and an '07 F150. Automatic transmission failure. It just quits. One was replaced, the other was rebuilt. Find a new mechanic.

    Thanks guys, still getting the hang of this site. Yeah, I think I'm going to look for a new mechanic instead
