sat for four years drove for ten miles now the tranny wont engage .... nothing at all. The ATF fluid resivoir thing....was low?? It is a five speed
Dear gregsewerman-- Imagine if you sat on the couch for four years watching TV and then decided to go out and run around the block. Think you'd be up to it? Well, the same thing happens to a car. Things dry out, crack, and "get out of shape." You need a good mechanic to check it out if you are thinking at all about making it run properly. The transmission is probably just the first of many things that will need repair. Good luck from Bovan.
Could it be that a CV joint/driveshaft broke, and the car doesn't move because of that?
possible the throw-out-bearing has become loose. that was my $$$ problem.lee alley
