My car will not move in Reverse or neutral.

Resolved Question:

My car will not move in Reverse or neutral. I does go forward in drive. I had the trnsmission replaced 1.5 years ago. Is this the differential? How can I get it in Neutral to back it up?

It sounds like you have a clutch pack siezed in the trans, causing it to stay in forward gear. Is it trying to pull forward when in neutral also? If that is the case you may have to get a tow truck with roller dollys to come in, lift the frt wheels on the dollys and then pull the car from the garage. It is not the differential section if it will move forward.
