Q: Won't shift when moving forward

asked by on

We just bought this car. They said it was a bad tranny but it goes in reverse and very slowly goes up to about 60. We changed tranny fluid and filter but had no response from the vehicle. Just wondering what else it could be considering its only 170,000 miles.

My car has 170000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
