Question type: General

Why doesn't the car move in drive? Is the
tranny gone or no?

1 Answer

Check your transmission fluid level. The transmission may be gone but check the fluid level and you can also try adding some Lucas Transmission Fix to try and get a few more miles out of the car. No guarantees though!
