My car will not shift into gear. The tow truck driver said I need to replace the linkage push rod.
Whether your vehicle's transmission is automatic or manual will change the diagnosis a bit. Both types of transmissions use a linkage system to connect the shifter to the transmission under the hood. Any binding or broken mechanical connection will cause this system to fail. A trained mechanic, like the experts we have here at YourMechanic, can pinpoint the cause of your shifting issue with ease.
