Best Answer

I was driving on the 22 fwy. and my car would no longer drive and now I can't get it to go into drive. I can put it in drive but it will not move. When I put it in drive the only thing that happens is it stays in place with rpm's revving

Even i have thé same problem could any one help me out.


sounds like either your TCU (transmission control unit) or your shift solenoid/s,, can you take off if you put it in a lower gear than drive ?

No buddy car doesn't move even in lower gear


have you checked your transmission fluid?


Yes, I have. It was fine, but I went ahead and drained my tranny fluid and added new fluid anyway. Did not help at all. The old tranny fluid was still in new condition


well then im still thinking its your TCU (transmission control unit) or your shift solenoid/s then,,

I have a 2001 Mitsubishi spyder my problem is kinda the same it starts and evrything but when I put it in drive or reverse it doesn't go anywhere. Does anyone know what could be wrong?

There is a defect in the wave ring inside the case in those year model transmissions. It's not too bad of a fix if you are experienced in transmission work.
