Question 1988 chevy silverarado 1500.

Ok so I just had my transmission replaced at a very reputable shop, back in May, we'll Friday was hauling a car hauling trailer up a hill and when I downshifted into second it was fine, when I downshifted further into first I heard a very loud clanking noise and lost all torque tried to put it in park but the truck still wanted to roll back, was able to back down into a dead end, now I need tokniw if it's my transmission again or my rear differential or what. SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP!
Trucks going back to the shop as it's warrantied just need to get opinions so the shop doesn't try to screw me over. Thanks all in advance. For any help

Welcome to the forums.

Have a little faith in the shop. If they are reputable like you said previously it's in their best interest to treat you fairly. It sounds like you may have a differential problem now.

I'm not sure how far back in the transmission the parking brake mechanism is so it could also be a transmission issue.

Put it in gear and if the drive shaft is turning and your not moving its rear end related. May even be broken axel.

Busted axle/rear end was the first thing that sprung to my mind, too.

Had one that broke the shaft in the spider gears also.
