Hi Im David, can you explain what you mean by "push power"?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
It goes into gear but when I accelerate all it does is raise rpms and not move.
Expert:  david craig replied 5 months ago.

thats not good. leave the car running. pull the transmission dipstick. the level should be to the full mark. the fluid should be bright red and not have a burnt smell to it. let me know when you do that.
