My car has 160 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
The failure of the transmission to stay in gear could be due to physical damage to the shift linkage. That would be apparent on inspection and testing. If the radiator is damaged, you can request radiator replacement and that replacement can be performed by YourMechanic’s certified mechanic right at your location. Any other damage to the vehicle would have to be evaluated and estimated during an inspection. If you want to begin the process of getting the car restored to running condition, feel free to request the radiator replacement and a shift linkage inspection/diagnostic. During that visit, the mechanic can help you to understand if other damage exists and how serious or costly it would be to repair. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
