Nope, if you have already taken one out the car will not move and besides if it did you would be blowing trans fluid everywhere and ruin the transmission.

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

What if i leave the other end in. Like a plug to prevent transmission fluid from leaking

The only way that would work is if you had a limit d slip differential and I don't believe they put those in a front wheel drive vehicle stock.
