Well to me it sounds like the transmission. My 93 thunderbird goes in to gear then it will go out of gear at time so i rev it up and it kicks back in. but the only time it does it is when it is not warmed up. Good luck..

Have the trans serviced to make sure the filter is not clogged. Also look for particals in the bottom of the trans pan.

Is it way below freezing temp. if it is your problem will vanish once it warms up.

I have the exact same car and have the exact same problem. Even after I let it warm up, it still would not move. I just had almost $500 of repairs done. So frustrating! I'm hoping it is something simple. dhensley78: what did your problem end up being?
