My car will shift into gear but won't drive, what's wrong?
If its an auto, check the oil level in the gearbox. If the gearbox is low on oil it can cause the torque converter to stop working. Seeing as a torque converter is the equivalent of a clutch in a manual car if it stops working you get no drive. Which brings us nicely to the next suggestion, if It's got a manual gearbox the clutch may be dead.
Wha if the oil level is not low
Take your pick. Could be anything from a dead gearbox to a dead differential. Or it could be as simple as a broken drive coupling on the propeller shaft or a broken drive shaft. There's a few different possibilities.
Mine is doing the same but I have an automatic
Mine just started doing same thing today, it is 2006 Altima, I can do reverse just fine, but have to put it in low to get started, then manually shift to next level, the into to drive - 3rd gear. It runs fine doing that. But when trying to start off in 2nd, 3rd or drive - does not go.
