Change tranny fluid and replace filter if not done in last 30K miles.  Cheapest possible fix of anything you can do,  and is routine maintenance.   This will frequently resolve it.
DIY info here,  this site also has very good prices on VW/Audi OEM parts.

Pickup starts great, goes into all gears but won't move. It's like it is still in nutural.


Assuming the pickup is an automatic, check the transmission fluid. The #1 cause for transmission slippage is lack of Automatic Transmission Fluid.

If the pickup is a standard shift, the pin that connects the shift to the transmission has likely broken. You would still be able to shift from the inside but the gears won't engage. A bad clutch is also a possibility but you would have noticed a burning smell prior to the clutch giving out.

Toyota Vista SV50 model / year 1999: I have used Dextron type 2 automatic fluid in the auto transmission. Could this be the problem for auto gears sticking in same gear too long when car is started in...


Hi, since you use a dextron type 2 automatic fluid then it is not cause of the sticking gear. Rather it should be as a result of a clogged transmission filter. A clogged transmission filtercan cause problems with changing gears because it will not allow the fluid to pass through the valve body or valve solenoids at the proper pressure. Without pressure, the plates won't move properly and you won't be able to easily change gears. This can be symptomatic either by itself or along with burnt or worn out transmission fluid, and both should generally be replaced at the same time, rather than just replacing one or the other.

Where can i get a diagram online for a 92 vigor auto trans i want to know how to take gears out to change selector fork for fourth gear


You probably won't find one. In an automatic transmission you cannot just simply remove gears or change the selector fork (especially because there isn't one). Everything needs to be there or it won't work at all.

Automatic transmission problem


May be the Throttle Position Sensor. Normally the check engine light will come on when this happens.
