Does it kill the motor when you try to put it in gear now(fwd or rev)? Sounds like the torque converter clutch. Transmission part. Usually at about 150,000 miles. Hope that helps.

Why won't my chevrolet silverado move when put in gear?

Hi, I am guessing it is an automatic transmission. Try putting the gear shift lever into a lower gear and see if it moves then. Sometimes the shift linkage gets mal-adjusted. I would also check the transmission fluid level. If it is really low, the tranny will not work either. If the fluid is really low, you'll need to look for a leak after you refill it. I am assuming that the transmission worked when you picked it up from the shop that repaired it.

I have a 1998 Oldsmobile intrigue (automatic). The car drives fine in reverse, however when I put it in drive, the car does not move. You have to rev the motor up real high for it to move an inch. Any...

The transmission is nearly dry. Add some transmission fluid! Automatic transmissions require oil pressure for the car to move, and if you don't have enough oil in it, it won't build up enough pressure to move the car

Ran out of gas. nearly filled tank, turned on, wont move

If the engine revs up but the car does not move it is not going into drive. If you can push the car easily when in drive and not at all when it is in park. Then the shifter part is working. If you can not push when in drive check your linkage the cale/linkage may be broken or disconnected. If the pushing test was okay and you do not hear any banging noise when in gear trying to move. That would indicate a broken c.v. joint or axle. Then your problem is internally in the transmission and running out of gas had nothing to do with what happened just occured at the wrong time.
