Q: My truck feels like it won't go in drive while I'm driving

asked by on

I'm driving my truck and it feels like it's stuck in 2nd or 3rd gear, was wanting to know if there's a way to save it before the transmission breaks completely

My car has 222000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You should have the computer and transmission scanned to see if the system is storing codes that can be fixed without an internal transmission issue. The codes will need to have the pinpoint tests done to isolate the problem.
