good evening my name is ***** ***** I will assist

the first thing I would do is verify the fluid level. if it is good, then I would change the oil/filter in the trans. the filter may be clogged.

the level was low but it is good now. why would car drive when we rocked it and it went into gear
Expert:  Roy Belding replied 1 month ago.

good, then the next step is to check the filter. if partially clogged, the pressures will be low until the oil thins out and can pass through the filter

I have no touch screen on my phone. o you think it is just a clogged filter?
Expert:  Roy Belding replied 1 month ago.
