More than likely the forward clutches are burnt,causing the no forward movement problem.Remove the transmission dipstick and smell the fluid,if it smells like burnt coffee then you need the transmission rebuilt.

The computer can't sense movement. An engine with worn spark plugs or bad coils can run perfectly fine at idle and begin misfire the second you put it into gear or under loads. Plugs/coils misfire most when under load. Have you checked them?

If it is an automatic, and absoloutely no movement it sounds like the torque convertor has failed. Either impellor or turbine. If it is a manual the clutch may have gone. If it is a manual, place it in gear and get a friend to rock the car back and forward. See if you notice any movement of the harmonic balancer/belts in the engine bay?

What are some issues to look for that would cause car not to move in any gear, but you can feel it wants to go when raising rpms. Could this be the trans is gone or something minor. Helping a friend and...


Lets assume the park brake is off. If you put it in gear, forward or reverse and the engine revs but care doesn't move, you are either very low on automatic transmission fluid or the transmission is burned up. Check the fluid level. If normal smell the fluid. If it smells burned, there is no doubt that the transmission is burned up.

96 sonoma that doesnt want to move i have to rev the engine to get it to move a little it in forward and reverse is it the clutch


If it is an automatic it sounds like a sprag gear or more than likely the hydraulic governor. Some of your more friendly transmission shops will sell you a governor for about $20. If it's your sprag gear you might as well have the transmission rebuilt.

If it's a standard, sounds like it may be your pressure plate may be shot.

1988 Jaguar xj6 No forward in the automatic trans rev works fine


the linkage is just a slight bit off, it parks between gears when you shift into the slots. Disassemble the shifter from the center console, and slowly move just the cable its self between the positions and see if you have forword gears. When you find and sync the gears, then tighten the cable to the shifter so the positions match the notches in the shifter.
