Well..., then just sit in the driver's seat and make noises like as if you're really driving it (ha,ha)sorry,just needed to put a smile on your face. Anyways,when/IF transmission converter is emptied,it needs to refill fully as it makes mechanisms(valves,so on)work to make the car move;now that is IF it was drained from also there. If you drained the fluid from the transmission pan(drain plug),changed the filter PROPERLY INSTALLED,refilled 2 thirds while engine off then running safely in PARK (parking brake on)fill to recommended amount checking with dipstick ,while in the car with brake pedal on,put in drive-neutral-reverse to make transmission's mechanisms make operation until car starts making a movement, then it should be okay. Are you sure you didn't nock something out of place,like linkage for gear changes??. Does the car make any noises when shifting gears??make a clunk noise??does it try to move??;need to know more details for someone to understand and find problem.

There is a solenoid that keeps you from putting the car in drive if you don't have your foot on the brake. There are several things that can cause the solenoid from working. You may want to start looking there before replacing a cable

Check level and condition of your transmission fluid. If your transmission fluid is turning brown or if your vehicle has not had a transmission fluid and filter change in 5 years or 50,000 miles, do that right away before you fry your transmission.

2001 Chevy metro, automatic transmission works in low 1, low 2 and drive will start out ok but suddenly the engine will start reving and the car will not move. Fluid and filter were changed less than...


First, check to make sure your fluid level is correct. That is most important. 50k miles is a bit too many miles on a transmission oil change. Off the top of my head I think Chevy want it every 35k? Could be wrong. Whatever you do, DO NOT do a flush, do a oil change WITH filter. If your pickup filter is plugged that could cause a ton of problems.

When shifting into drive car not moving. pls. help


If the Fluid Level is good then there is only bad news left. You could try doing a filter fluid change but I doubt that will work. There are several solenoids inside the transmission. If any one of them goes out the Transmission will not work. If the fluid level is good you will need to have the transmission checked by a specialist and possibly rebuilt. Sorry for the bad news.

Car starts fine and goes in reverse fine


First thing is check your transmission fluid level. 2nd thing is, if you haven't changed filter & fluid in transmission in a while, spend the money & do it, or have it done.
