I cant. I do not have enough funds. I am on a 7 day trial for this site. I mean that physically I can put the shifter into 1st 2nd 3rd ect. HOWEVER once I depress the clutch. THE vehicle will not move. Also if I put the shifter into 5th gear and let off the clutch. The speedometer says t he vehicle is moving at 20mph. However the vehicle will not move
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 month ago.

does the car move?can you drive it at all?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
The car moves if I push it. IT is undriveable
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 month ago.

ok

sense the speedometer does work

the first thing you want to do is to check the drive axles/cv joints..

if the axles are fine,and from the way you explain,it sounds as if your problem is the transmission itself.it sounds as if something has broken in the transmission,if this is the case,the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced

thanks

Do you think the cv shaft might be broken?
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 month ago.

yes,,it is possible for it to be the axle from the way you explain..

you will need to have someone check that

thanks

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Would it most likely be the cv axel if I hear the raspy sound only when I put the vehicle in gear?
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 month ago.

you certainly need to check that first
