got a 2011 caliber two weeks ago, out of the blue, it won't shift into gear. Took me about 5 minutes to physically get it in reverse, another 2 minutes to get it into first. Now I can't move the stick but an inch or two, can't find the grooves for the gears, and, despite it being parked on a hill, when I disengaged the parking brake
the car didn't move. Front wheels were locked
JA: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the brake switch?
Customer: transmission is original, 2011. have not checked the brake switch
JA: Are you fixing your Caliber yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: no, I have neither the tools, nor knowledge to fix it meself. Checked the transmission fluid and it was fine.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: not that I can think of
