My car has 350000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi there. Check the engine and transmission mounts and see if they are allowing the transmission to move around. It is possible that the transmission is moving around and catching the shifter linkage and pushing it into a neutral position. This would explain why the shifter does not move when driving normally. If you need further assistance with with your shifter moves into neutral as the engine is throttled hard, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
