So my car is not moving... My transmission fluid is good, I still have oil but I am due for an oil change.. what can be the problem?

My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello there. Usually when your car will not shift into any gear, it’s caused by a damaged shift solenoid or speed sensor. It’s also possible that an obstruction of debris exists inside the transmission hydraulic lines. To correctly diagnose this problem, it’s a good idea to have a professional mechanic complete a car is hard to shift inspection.
