Possible transmission failure. Have it diagnosed.

did you check the transmission fluid level? full between the HOT and COLD hashmarks on the dipstick....needs fluid to complete the task of shifting gears~ look for a fluid leak at the rubber connections to the radiator~


Patsy.....never shared an intimate moment there.~


It could be a broken transmission. Or it could be a loose nut behind the wheel.
