Q: Q: Transmission problem?

asked by on

I had the same problem three weeks ago that I do now. The car ran fine both incidents and was then put in to park for a few minutes. I put the car in drive and the rpms drop down and will not accelerate. I replaced the battery last time and the car was fine until now and it's doing the exact same thing. The only thing I thought of that would kill the battery like that is the alternator but a bad alternator would not let the new battery last almost a month. Looking online I see it could be transmission related. (Car is automatic)

My car has 184000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
