Q: Q: Car not moving once in gear

asked by on

I can shift my car into gear, but it won't move at all.

Hi. This transmission has many technical bulletins for upgraded. The internal transmission gears and springs could be causing your problem. The transmission would need to be inspected and possible replaced or overhauled with major mechanical parts. I recommend you have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, diagnose why your car’s not moving to eliminate any doubts.
