Make sure there is transmission fluid in the car. the gears are hydraulic and they wont interlock if there's not enough pressure...

It needs to be rebuilt or changed. Your best bet would probably get a used one at a scrapyard and replace it. Most scrapyards will provide some warranty, usually 30 days. Hope this helps.

Bmw312i 2004. Lost forward power. Car went well until stopped on hill at lights would not go forward backed back to flat. Started very slow and then went ok


Without any further info, it sounds like a transmission fluid issue.
If it was running fine when level and started acting up while in an incline, you may not have sufficient transmission fluid in the transmission.
The fact that it started to move slowly then went ok once level is an indication. If you continue to drive in this condition, you could damage your transmission.
You should have your fluid checked (some of these newer transmission are 'sealed', meaning there is no 'dipstick', but any competent shop can check the level and the condition of the oil)
Are you the original owner? If you bought it used, you may have uncovered the reason for selling, which I've heard can be temporarily masked by using additives, etc.
Any major transmission repair is going to be expensive...2~3 k

When i start my car and go to put it in gear it wont move.


When you say rocky spot, what do you mean? If you mean there were rocks in the roadway, you could have put a small hole in the transmission pan which leaked all the fluid out of it. First thing I would do is check the fluid level on the transmission dipstick and look for leaks on the ground under the car.

I was driving my 2005 dodge Dakota today and my transmission overheated I let it sit and the overheat warning went off in no time... well half way home my tire literally started smoking and it was coming...


Failure to change your brake fluid every 2 years
Neglect to take the brakes apart once a year to
remove rust,inspect parts & lube things,plain & simple
Now you need new calipers,new rubber flex hoses, &
service the rear as well & flush the complete system
If the trans overheated that may have to come out & be
rebuilt,don't tell me no on the trans I used to own a trans shop
You change trans & power steering fluids every 3 years or less
Why would you drive one mile with a trans warning light & then
smoke from a seized caliper
Also the over heated caliper may have ruined your wheel hubs
Don't mean to be hurtful, but you have to work on vehicles a
couple times a year,take things apart for no reason in most
peoples minds
You should never have has one issue on a 2005 vehicle,
it's neglect,I'm sorry

On a 2001 dodge intrepid with a 2.7, whether you put it into drive or reverse it does nothing...this started when drivin on day it went into a limp mode...got it home and parked and when i later tried to...


limp mode as in computer limp in mode?check the trans fluid is it dark looking?, Need more info. Did you have the trans fluid changed recently? The reason i ask is when you change the trans fluid way after its do the new trans fluid is detergent type and fresh fluid can put the transmission in shock(Trans Shock). This can wipe out a transmission in 5 miles or so seen it too many times. Let me know how it goes. Lee

It seems that the trans is slipping. The smell is from excess trans flood. If Trans is over filled, it can rupture seals and cause leaking that can get on the exhaust and burn.
