Customer Question

My car won't go over 20 mph and it won't shift into gear. It is an automatic. The engine revs up and all the fluids show good and not below normal.

Hi. Is your trans stuck in second gear and won't shift up? What year, model, and engine is your vehicle?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
My car is a 1997 Dodge Neon and as far as the engine goes, I'm not really sure. Maybe a 4 cyclinder? I've talked to someone last night, and they think it's the transmission - which I cannot afford to get fixed.

What exactly does the car do? Does it stay in first gear when you take off from a stop?
