My 2002 Cadillac Deville will not go forward or backward

Asked by Jul 06, 2017 at 10:56 AM about the 2002 Cadillac DeVille

Question type: Car Customization

I have a 2002 Cadillac Deville and when you get in
it and start it, it fires right up like nothing is wrong  
but when I pull it in gear (Drive or reverse) it will not
go neither way. Some people think it's the axle and
some think it's the tranamission. What do you all
think? Please let me know and thank you!

All depends on the feel of it when you put it in gear. Do you feel any kind of slight movement in th direction selected? If you do it could be a bad axle joint but they are usually followed by some kind of noise, my gut tells me the tranny is shot.

I'm saying tranny
