This happened to me once. It sounds like the transmission went bad. You'll need to see a mechanic. There's a possibility it may drive in neutral but obviously that's not recommended.


Thanks it does move in neutral and mechanics are hard to find. How do I go about getting a transmission.


I would talk to a mechanic; replacing a transmission isn't easy. It's also. Dry expensive and likely not worth the cost to replace. You could check with a salvage yard. You might find a transmission there at a decent price.
