Hi i have a 1999 camaro 3.8 l. Manuel 5 speed. Lately when i put the car in 1st gear or reverse the engine revs but the car does not move. A while back it did grind when put in reverse. Thanks for.tour help. 107,000 miles
My car has a manual transmission.

Check the linkage to be sure the gear shifter is actually selecting 1st or reverse. If all other gears work, that is you can start out in 2nd gear and the clutch holds tight as you start out in 2nd, select 3rd, and so forth, that suggests an internal transmission fault. Such would have to be diagnosed first hand and, if confirmed, obviously the transmission would have to be disassembled to find the fault. If you desire a diagnostic, you can request a clutch/transmission diagnostic. If you request that service, the responding certified mechanic will get this diagnosed and resolved, right at your location. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic because we want you to make the most of your repair dollars and help you to get the best possible results.
