Q: Problems with shifting.

asked by on January 14, 2016

My truck will not shift gears.

Transmissions can be totally destroyed inside and not shift or it could be something simple such as a speed sensor if reading erratic. The only way to tell is to have the system thoroughly checked by a certified transmission technician, like at YourMechanic. They could check and do some test to see if a simple fix may do it or you need a rebuild or replacement.
