The car will start but when you put it in gear it wont move
My car has 196000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi There, It sounds like your car may be low on transmission fluid. Since automatic transmissions use pressurized hydraulic fluid to change gears, every time a gear change is required, the car’s computer activates a transmission solenoid, which directs transmission fluid into the valve body to engage the correct gear. When the transmission is low on fluid, this will cause a problem with building the correct hydraulic pressure needed in order to cause the transmission to engage. I would recommend having a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose and inspect your vehicle.
