Q: Car won't shift out of second gear

asked by on

After I got a tune-up, my car would not shift out of second gear. Car must be restarted for normal shifting operation.

Unfortunately, there can be a variety of culprits behind the cause of the symptoms you describe on your Chrysler. It is possible that this concern is unrelated to the repairs that were performed, but to be 100% certain it may be time to enlist the assistance of a certified mechanic.

Once they can identify the cause of your gear issue and assist in getting your Chrysler 300 running reliably again.
