Q: Car starting, but not going into gear

asked by on February 10, 2016

My car does start, but the car does not go into gear. The transmission fluid is also leaking.

The transmission leak would have to be located and fixed then the transmission fluid filled to see if internal damage has been done to the transmission. The leak could be from the transmission or transmission cooler. Once the leak is fixed the transmission may work okay. I recommend you have a mechanic, like ones from YourMechanic, come by and inspect your transmission leakage.

You will need to have the engine fuel pressure and injectors checked to see if the pressure is low and if okay then the fuel injectors may need cleaned. This can cause the problem you are having.
