My car won't move forward.

A: Usually, if the car will not go forward it ...

Usually, if the car will not go forward it mean the transmission is shot. This depends on if it is an automatic or manual transmission. I’m just assuming that it is an automatic and there is something wrong with the inside of the transmission or the valve body may need replacing. I would recommend taking the car to a transmission specialist to monitor some sensors in the transmission to determine what the problem may be. I would count on them replacing the transmission.
