My car reverses but won't accelerate, it only will when it want too?
About a week ago my car got stuck
in a ditch and my boyfriend
accelerated(trying to get out) until the
check engine light came on. We
finally got it out and when we would
accelerate it would jerk, rev, and only
reverse. After several hours I go to
use the car and still have the same
problem? At one point it wouldn't
even go forward at all! So he takes it
to a mechanic the next day and the
mechanic says its a part from the
transmission won't be to spendy. A
couple days go by and tells us it
needs a whole new transmission and
it'll cost about 2,000 with labor and
everything else. Can I get some help
to figure out what's wrong and
second opinion?? Don't want to get
Trying to get "unstuck" from a ditch can take its toll on the engine and transmission. The mechanic's diagnosis, and repair costs sound reasonable. Pull the dipstick on the tranny. Feel and smell it. If it smells bad...the tranny has been overheated.
