Q: My car will go in every gear but drive

asked by on

My car will go in every gear but drive I got a tranny flush. Could it be the shifter cable
My car has an automatic transmission.

If you had a transmission flush and then the transmission lost forward gear then your forward clutch band is bad and lost first drive gear. You may want to double check the shift cable is selecting the correct drive gear. If cable is okay then you will need to have the transmission overhauled or replaced.
