The transmission has failed, the fact that u still have reverse seals the deal, it is the classic symptom.

Problem with 2005 gran prix gtp


Well, since the transmission in your vehicle is computer-controlled, I think the FIRST step in diagnosing the problem should be to ask the Powertrain Control Module what is going on.

2000 Ford Tarus- Took off from stop sign just fine then car wouldn't go faster. As I pushed the gas, the car reved but wouldn't go. Pulled over and shut car off. Started car again and tried...


I would guess that something inside of the transmission has failed and there is no longer a mechanical connection between the motor and the drive axles regardless of what gear you attempt to move in.[sheared splines, broken planetary, etc.] Often when this happens you won't hear any kind of noise because of the failed parts being inside the transmission case...instead the car just won't go anymore. You could have a CV drive axle joint that has failed but generally they will make some noticable rattling or grinding noise as they churn away when you try to go forward or reverse. If something has failed inside of the transmission then the transmission will need to be removed and repaired. It if is just a drive axle joint that has failed then that can be replaced without doing anything to the transmission. Hope this helps and good luck!

What is the switch for in the lower left side of the dash on my 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix, it's labeled, start in second gear


with switch on, the transmission will not shift into 1st gear--it will start in second and then shift to third, etc.. This is OK for normal driving, but not if you start on hills or want to accelerate quickly from a stop.

Hello, I have a 2000 grand prix gt shift into gear and drive fine


Sounds like the filter might be plugging up. I would have it serviced. Do you have a check engine light on? How long do you have to leave the engine off before it will start moving again?

A whirling, humming sound that increases with acceleration


if the sound increases with vehicle speed, it is a drive issue, like wheel bearings or front wheel drive gears. if it increases with engine rpm, it could be a bad engine bearing, alternator or water pump.

My avalanche won't shift


Sounds like a broken internal trany part. Take it out and shift it through the gears manually to see which gears work and where it revs up. The second and fourth gears are the ones that tend to not work.
