Q: My car makes a whining sound whenever I accelerate. whenever I select drive it goes to gear 1 instead of D on the dashboard

asked by on

Whenever I accelerate I hear a whining sound. Secondly, whenever I select D the dashboard shows gear 1 instead of D. P, R, and N are working well but D goes directly to 1 instead of D.

Thanks.

My car has 165 miles.
