My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello.

If the transmission is not going into gear and is behaving as if it were in neutral, then it may be possible that there is an issue with the transmission. A transmission that will not properly engage may be slipping as a result of a faulty component or a faulty transmission. If the torque converter, valve body, or one of the shift solenoids fails, it may cause the transmission to slip. I would start by checking the fluid level and scanning for trouble codes if the Check Engine Light is on. A technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to help you scan the codes and diagnose the shifting problem.

Regards,
