Thanks for choosing Just Answer . I'm Wolfgang here to help!!Below is my first answer or request for more information. If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail. Do not rate yet, just reply. Put yourself in my shoes, I can not see, smell, hear, feel or touch your car, nor do I know any history on it. So take into consideration I am doing my best based on what you tell me. Also understand fixing cars often requires sophisticated tools, that you may not own. So even if you can not do what is outlined in my answer, that does not mean my answer is wrong deserving to be rated negative. Is the check engine light on ?if you really pay attention to the gear indicator of the dashboard is all gears blacked out ? please let me know

Was a scan test performed? what codes are stored ? thanks
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
No sir their hasn't been a scan test performed...
Expert:  Wolfgang replied 7 months ago.
being that the check engine light is on and you have an electronic controlled transmission i would advise a scan test to narrow down the issue you have. you can have a speed sensor issue to internal shift valve issue. to many variables at this time . Advise the scan and then post the fault codes .
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
The guy I got it from said it needs some type of sensor for the transmission, and ok I will have the test done and send you the codes...
