Can I assume you had a shop install it for you? Do you have a warranty? Call them up and have them tow it back to their shop on their dime for repair.


I had a friend of mines install it but the transmission does have a warranty on it.


I just don't understand it though. The first time I had this problem my car would back up but it wouldn't drive forward. Now this time it will not drive forward or in reverse but it still will crank up and it still runs smooth.

There could be a loose driveshaft or cv joint if your friend didn't torque everything down properly.
