Transmission problems

Asked by Dec 31, 2016 at 05:43 AM about the 1997 Honda Accord Coupe EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When i shift in to drive the car wont move the
engine will only rev. If i sit there of a couple
minutes in drive with my foot on the brake then
release the brake it will move. The same thing
happens when i shift into reverse except that if i
pull the shifter back slowly it will work just fine. Ive
already checked to fluid level and it right at thr full
mark.
