Transmission related. How is the fluid level? Maybe a solenoid failed? Have it look it by your local mechanic to diagnose the issue.


I have taken it to one shop. He started it tried to put it in gear then said used transmission 1200. I didnt feel that was a good assessment. I had to tow it to him and tow it back.
