Here is my question: restated. My 99 Cavalier will not move at all. The emergency handbrake is not on. It goes into all of the gears easily, the car just does not move. What could the problem be?


Is your vehicle a standard or an automatic transmission? When you place the car into gear does the transmission click as though it wants to move?

I got a 1990 ford tempo I was wondering why it goes in reverse but won't go forward


Is it standard or automatic, I think it must be Standard because that doesn't happen with Automatics. If you put it in low and it only goes backwards someone had it (The transmission apart) and put the slider in back wards or something like that. Perhaps the forward gears are gone so they wanted to see if reverse works. Maybe you meant when you shift into a forward gear it doesn't work but when you shift it into reverse it does work. There is a fork like gear that moves the gears in and out of high and low range and it might be broken and it is possible if you find it hasn't been ground up in the internal gears it might be welded back in place and be sure to grind off every bit of flux so the gears can work smoothly. Best thing is to go to a junk yard that still has older cars like the Tempo so you can buy the transmission.

My 1995 BMW 318ti (standard) turns on fine and the clutch goes into gear but when I tried to reverse the car tried to move but the back wheels were locked up or something! ! I can shift the clutch into...


ok this is gonna sound ridiculous, but if the wheels are locked, did you take off the handbrake?? also, the clutch might not be engaging properly.

Transmission not move forward backward


Probably. There may be a solenoid not working which is keeping the transmission from engaging the forward gear train but for it not to work at all is unusual.

Dodge magnum transmission won't shift gears


This is what you should do.... PRAY that it is low on fluid. If not, then there are a few questions that I need to ask

a. When you Shift, does the handle go to each gear?
b. Can you feel the Detent on each gear?
c. If the Cable Broke... Easy Fix
d. If your car goes into each gear but does not move... MONEY $$$

To correctly answer your question, I need more information.. Is it not shifting gear when moving or Won't allow you to select gears?

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.
