Question about 1989 Nissan 240SX
I have a 1998 automatic fiat punto-when i put the gears into D,the car will not drive forward,,,,but if i rev the car alittle, a red gearbox light comes on the dash but it doesnt flash---if i then move the gear stick into R then D the car will drive forward,and will drive perfect .....until i go into Pand turn off the engine,and then retry --the same problem occurs----anyone got any idea of what is causing this,,please help
Sounds like you need a new gear box or you can get your old one reconditioned at a gearbox specialist. i think your ploblem occourd because you may of had no gearbox oil inside the gearbox

i know these have a common problem with the spindles from the gearbox locating into flyheel for corroding badly and seizing up sounds if you need new spindle to solve this problem also think you are catching it a early stage suggest getting this looked at.

another factor that could affect your problem is the hydrolic fluid. there is a valve body inside the gearbox which controlls the gears. so lets say the vavle that controlls first gear dont open then the hydrolic fluid wont activate first gear. i think when u revv the engine it is increasing the hydrolic pressure which is aiding the vavle to open. the problem could be in the valve controll modual.
