My car will only drive in reverse , when I put it into drive it won't move I get the rpms but I won't go any where , could this be due to a bad timing belt ???
My car has an automatic transmission.
The answer to your question is no. Generally speaking, when you have a timing issue your car will shake heavily when started or not start at all. However, I’ve came across this problem in the past with a customer. I believe it is your transmission connection between your shifter and the transmission. There is a linkage that may not be moving freely and causing your car not to shift into drive properly.
