Help! 98 Chevy 3500 stuck in 5th

My 98 Chevy 3500 C/T is stuck in 5th. There was no warning signs, noises... I got in my truck, started it and it wouldn't move out of 5th. I checked the hydraulic fluid and it looked like mud. Where should I start looking?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Is the vehicle stuck in 5th with no movement? If so I would check the clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder first. Try turning the vehicle off and see if you can run through the gears. If the clutch is not disengaging the transmission you will not be able to shift without having the proper meshing of gears.

Is the truck parked on an incline? Is the fluid your checking the gearbox oil or the clutch mater cylinder . Is there movement in the clutch ?and is the linkage able to move freely or is it possible that theres mud or debris in the linkage?

I would start by checking your clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder to make sure that they are actuating properly.
