Sounds le transmission. Check it manual in lower gears while applying brakes and power to see if it slips or won't move. Had to replace two of them on my trucks as well. Check with commercial GM parts dealers I bought a factory rebuilt for $1200 here in AZ with 50K warranty.

Better verify the problem first, everyone is having transmission shift solenoid problems, so the first thing to do would be have the codes checked, someplace like autozone will check them for free, if you have transmission solenoid codes then you need to find a good tranny shop, check reviews in your area to find a good one. Or if your felling brave replace them yourself. Really messy work though.

I just checked my car, turning on the engine and trying move the shift to D OR R... the car doesnt move to anywhere. So, If I can not take my car to any place, the most smart thing to do is getting a tow truck to take to the dealer... or there are anything I can do to drive my car to any place??

Sorry, maybe I sound stupid but in my country I was an attorney and I never learned anything about cars, here in US I am suffering a little bit. Thank you for all the good comments. I really appreciated that.

Try selecting the lower gears, like all the way too low or 1, if it starts too move then while it is still moving try 2, if it shifts into 2nd and you can speed up then try 3, if it goes into 3rd and will make 45mph don't shift any further until you get to the dealer or wherever your going to get it fixed. If you have to stop on your way there then you will have to do the shifting all over again. If you feel uncomfortable trying this then don't, just get a tow truck. HTH
