When the Automatic transmission gear shift is not working this is a very serious problem that causes by several reasons and one of those is completely damage transmission. It may also possible that the transmission has a very low amount of transmission fluid. However, if the fluid level is enough, another reason is Bad fluid pump or Gear selector linkage problem.

When an
automatic transmission has bad fluid pump all the gears will not work, because automatic transmission depends on the hydraulic fluid pressure that is created by the fluid pump to pump transmission fluid throughout the transmission assembly to work properly.

Same with the fluid
pump, when an automatic transmission has a problem on gear selector linkage all gears will not work. Gear selector is the one that determines which gear is going to operate. When a gear selector linkage is broken or out of adjustment it cannot operate properly causing the gear not to work.

Diagnose auto problem: Low transmission fluid, Faulty fluid pump or out of adjustments gear selector linkage.

When the problem is low level automatic transmission fluid, just add enough amount of fluid to fix the problem. But if the problem has nothing to do with the fluid level .Then inspect the fluid pump and the gear selector linkage, the mechanic probably will open up the transmission for better diagnosis. If the problem is not fluid pump or gear selector linkage then you has no other option but to replace the transmission assembly with a new one since the automatic transmission gear shift is not working.

Thanks. keep updated for any more can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

I change timing bellt after that wo'nt start please help

I was wondering if it broke before you changed it. Even if you was one tooth off it still should have started at least and maybe not run too good which will not hurt the engine. You could be 180* off on the timing. If you like you can register your car at and it is all for free and there you can access any repair diagrams. Great tool for future repairs.

Hesitation on Acceleration or Uphill.

The knock is caused by either timing issue or a lean cylinder condition, have you checked the fuel pressure?? has the fuel filter been changed?? A bad knock sensor will not set a light unless it is open or disconnected.
