I was driving my car and it just stoped accelerating
all the sudden the car will no longer move but
engine runs smooth
this sounds like your transmission is malfunctioning, possibly because the oil level has not been checked or changed, I would suggest to you that you take the automobile to your local shop and ask a qualified technician who would be able to diagnose or replace the malfunctioning transmission allow $750-$1000 for this.
I have checked the fluids they are good . Im just trying to figure out if it could be something minor like a relay . The linkage is good . It goes in park . It just doesnt go in reverse or drive . Or atleast it doesnt move in thise gears
Could be a torque converter issue, doesn't sound like a relay. diagnosis is beyond the average person's possibility. If the vehicle has been operating on the same transmission fluid for 19 years, you may need a rebuild.
About how much would it cost to repair
Depends on the problem. I'd stay away from large chain concerns, seems the only repair they offer is a rebuild, regardless of the problem. A long established mom and pop transmission only shop is probably the best recommendation. Your concern now is the vehicle will not move and a estimate can only be given if the mechanic can took at the tranny.
