Q: Q: I have problems with my transmission

asked by on

I bought a car that was listed as having no reverse. I bought a battery and started the car I shifted into drive and it moved forward. I shifted into reverse and nothing happened. I shifted between drive 1,2 neutral and reverse about 10 to 15 times and reverse came back but now it will not move forward. I have checked the shift linkage and the neutral safety switch/range selector and they seem to be ok. any info would be appreciated.

My car has 96000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
