Q: Why would all my gears go forward including neutral and reverse.

asked by on

I went playing in the snow and got stuck now reverse neutral will only go forward and park feels like your in gear with your foot on the break. it has a p0715 and p0791 code.

My car has 130000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. The intermediate shaft in the transmission broke or stripped out the teeth and the input shaft seals are leaking. I recommend seeking out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you diagnose your transmission issues.
