the gears will stop work after awhile of the car is running

1 Answer


sounds like a transmission issue. I would check the fluid level first and top it off if needed. then check the color. (should be pink/red in the color) If the fluid level is not the issue but the color is brown and burnt smelling then it is time to get it to a shop.
