CAR WILL NOT MOVE WHEN IN GEAR

My car has 79560 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello, thank you for writing in. The first place to start is to check the level of the transmission fluid. If the level is low, then the hydraulically controlled transmission will not reach the pressure it needs to perform. With that being said, if the level is that low, there is likely a leak in the system. A visual inspection of the area may indicate where the leak is coming from. The shift linkage is the second most common reason this will happen. If the shift linkage is not actually putting the transmission into gear, the transmission may remain in park. You can visually check this by looking at the connection between the linkage and the transmission. For more help resolving the issue, contact our service department about scheduling an appointment.
