Thank you for writing in. If the vehicle is shifting and working in reverse but not drive, you have an issue with the transmission or the linkage. You will want see if the gear selector is changing the positions on the transmission to rule out the linkage. If it is, the vehicle is likely having transmission issues and you need to seek the help of a professional.
