I'm guessing that you somehow snapped a drive shaft. I've never heard of it happening, but that's a really old car and you said it went suddenly...with an audible "snap." I think there's a good chance you'll end up replacing a component like the drive shaft or universal joint, instead of the whole transmission. Good luck.

time to find local shop at ATRA.COM. might be something as simple as a linkage problem or as bad as a complete rebuild. the fluid won't help now

well 1. if you can hear it accelerate and the truck doesnt move then its probably transmission or drive shaft^ related. (take it to a shop for transmission problems its a very big job, you could probably figure out a drive shaft problem by looking under the truck at the pole that runs from the transmission to the rear axle and you should be able to see whats broken.) 2. if you step on the gas and nothing happened when the truck was running its probably somewhere from the gas pedal to the engine related. in which case your gas pedal would probably feel really weak. (find out where the gas pedal cord hooks up to the linkage and try to manually rev it while someone else tries to start it, you should be able to see whats broken and repair it) 3. if the engine just completely shut off then it sounds like timing chain. (take it to a shop, pretty big job as you have to take off all the pulleys and water pump...)
