Year, Make and Model please.

I just know its a pontiac grand am. Its not my car. I was just asked.


Chances are real good that the trans has gone bye bye, there a number of vehicles out there that have a transmission control solenoid pack that can go bad and cause the same problem. Check to see if the fluid smells burnt, if it does then it is most likely bad.
