Q: Cannot move car - 2000 Honda Civic

asked by on

Hello, My car has been siting for more than 3 months almost now and when i started her up and took it to check oils and other things they were okay bought some supplies. When leaving on the road the car would highly accelerate but not advance , it is an automatic. Can`t go reverse or in any drive mode so i turned it off and waited then went again but did not advance more than 60feet each time. Friends have said maybe transmission oil is needed. When i check it i made the error of when it was turned off not on how it should be i guess. I have left it on for a while and checked it again but can not get an accurate amount since it is splashing everywhere. any ideas of the problem ?

thank you
