sounds like the transmission is gone. If they bought it from a dealership then you should at least have a 30 day warranty. If it was bought from a private owner, depending on the state, it could be covered by the lemon law. Most states have a lemon law on used automobiles. Good luck. P.S. sounds like the battery could be dead if you have to keep jump starting it.

Cheapest scenario is to change the transmission filter. That is if it is an automatic. When you do this, most transmissions have a magnet in the transmission pan. If yours has one I would check it for excessive metal shavings or worse metal chunks.

My 2002 Dodge Caravan SE (2.4L) doesn't want to kick into gears


Automatic transmissions can fail at any mileage. First thing you need to do is check the fluid level, make sure the transmission is full, also check the condition of the fluid, burnt odor, strong varnish smell, or signs of contamination. If the level is correct, and the fluid is red in color, without any strong odors, you may have some type of valvebody issue, however, given my experience, these transmissions are prone for failure around this mileage.

Stalling Out Honda Accord..... PLEASE HELP!!!!!!


Hello marquesevond ..

It may be related to the transmissions electronic control unit. The most common symptom would be that from a dead stop the vehicle feels like it starting out in high gear. The transmission computer or TCU (transmission control unit) suppose to control the automatic upshifts an downshifts but may not be downshifting the trans back to first gear. To verify if this is the problem try shifting the transmission like it was a manual shifted transmission. From a dead stop start off in 1st an manually shift. When slowing down, shift down manually just like it was a manual transmission. On a turn you should be in 2nd gear or 1st manually with your hand shifter depending on how fast you are going. If it drives and shifts good, without stalling, you may have a bad TCU to diagnose.

When I drive my car It goes like my tyre is flat stop go stop go


I would get a second opinion at another transmission shop. If the transmission has not been serviced properly I wouldn't be surprised that it is having problems.

My 1992 Nissan Stanza has transmission leak.


The stop leak treatment may help the seals to seal better but I would get the car to a good transmission shop since it has that many miles on it. The fluid probably needs flushed out and changed by this time.
