Q: Transmission

asked by on

It won't get gears

Hi there. There are several mechanical and electrical components that control today’s complex transmissions; ranging from internal components like the torque converter to mechanical linkage. Without know specifics about your vehicle, it’s difficult to give you a precise diagnosis. You might want to contact one of our professional mobile mechanics to complete an onsite transmission inspection; which should allow them to determine what’s wrong with your vehicle for an accurate repair. Otherwise, feel free to resubmit a more detailed question that includes the year, make, and model of you car for a more specific response. Best of luck.
