Have you checked your fluid level...


Are you saying that the shift lever will not shift out of part, or do you mean the car wont move in "Drive?"

yes i have checked my fluid, and it smells burnt so im going to flush the whole trans system and replace the filter

the car moves in drive but i have to rev my engine and hold it at about 1 1/2 - 2 RPM for it to catch into gear and then it drives slow at first then it starts to drive normal
