Question about 2009 Dodge Avenger

Car will not move in drive or reverse

When i put my car in drive or reverse there is no sign of the car attempting to move. I dont think it is a new transmission because if it was a blown transmission would either work in one or the other. Any ideas? hope it will be something small!

No a car in drive has 5 or more gears allowing the vehicle to accelerate past the one reverse gear. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SOURCE: cant get shift out of park

It sounds much like failed linkage which is better than about anything else you checked.
I recommend procuring a Haynes or Chilton manual for your car. It will not only help you locate the source of your current misery but serve you well in the future too. They are available at about any auto parts store for ~$20 US

SOURCE: yellow engine light(IDK)?

the yellow light is the check engine light, the best thing you can do is find someone who has a hand held code reader and let him come to your house. it will pull the code on the engine and tell you exactly whats wrong.

SOURCE: 95 dodge stratus transmission problem

Whoever told you that you need a new transmission was correct!! I had to have mine replaced last September. Unless you have a friend that's a mechanic it's going to cost you at least $2000.00 if not $2500.00. Hopefully you have some mechanic friends. GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: transmission will not engage and slips when it does engage

auto trans operates on fluid pressure. if the trans has never been serviced, more than likely the filter is plugged, and or the fluid is bad. no doubht its burned and will smell and look like it. get it towed to a shop and have the fliud and filter changed first, then check the band adjustment.recommend a trans shop do it and not jiffylube.

I think your torque converter IS the problem. Because it's the only thing that attaches the engine to the transmission and it's designed to "lock up" at highway speeds for overdrive. If it locks up at idle it will kill the engine. If it locks up at slow speeds ( < 35mph ) the vehicle will lurch/buck... And if it wont move in forward or reverse I would say it's time for a new/rebuilt transmission

Well you mean it doesn't even move forward ? and i would advice you to check the oil level and try to have the filter changed and put in new fluid again and this might solve your problem. and if dont work then you try to get a transmission for a junk yard for cheap, Around $150/$200 and have your Mechanic( friend) put it in.lol

Good luck bro

1994 Plymouth laser won't move forward when in gear..


SOUNDS LIKE THE TORQUE-CONVERTER WHICH ALLOWS THE CAR TO BE IN GEAR AT A RED LIGHT OR STOP SIGN AND NOT STALL. IF YOU HEAR A RATTLING TRY TO FIND OUT IF IT IS COMING FROM THE EXHAUST PIPE OR THE TRANSMISSION. OR IT COULD BE A CLOGGED CATALYTIC CONVERTER. I HOPE IT IS THE LESSER EXPENSIVE OF THE TWO. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED

TRANSMISSION COMES OUT OF DRIVE WHEN I STOP THE CAR


Start with a complete flush of the trany and torque converter, and a filter replace. That should fix the problem, but the Taurus has a bad reputation for trany's going out frequently.

2003 gmc yukon won't move when i put in drive or reverse


Hello. If you havent already done so check your transmission fluid with the car ideling. If its not moving it definatly sounds like a transmission problem. The tire should have nothing to do with this unless you put huge mud tires on it without properly adjusting gear ratio. That could possibly fry the transmission, but the difference in size would have to be pretty big compared to the old tires.
