Q: Car doesn't go into gear.

asked by on

My car won't go into gear.

This problem is not a common problem on these vehicles and the problem may be a major transmission pan leak and fluid got too low to engage the transmission. If the linkage is disconnected from a broken shift cable would also cause a similar complaint. My suggestion for you would be to get a qualified mechanic do a check of the fluids and basic check for a transmission shift cable or the transmission has internal problems.
