my engine just revs as if car is in park while it actually is in drive mode.
When I engage the drive mode, the car moves but after a short while, it just revs as if the gear is in neutral or park. It picks on its own after a few seconds or minutes. Pls any ideas what could be wrong? My automatic gear oil level is good. Proble occurs both in automatic transmission mode and manual drive mode. Thanks
Usually sign of low trans fluid, and when the car is cold. Fully warm the car up to check the fluid level. In park and on a level surface. If the level is OK as you say, your looking at have a mechanic look it over.
Unfortunately, this most likely is your only warning that your trans is about to drop.. start saving. It probably was really cold weather when it failed to engage, and once you got a little heat from friction it was ready to go in gear. Sorry.
P.S. If your trans has more than 180K on it, get it fixed or replaced, before it gets you stuck in traffic or the middle of nowhere.
