I can start the car, but when I try to shift to drive or any other position, the ‘gear’ is not there. It is not engaging the gear at all. I want to know what could be the problem, how much it could cost to repair.
Transmission Mechanic: Tim's Auto Repair, Mechanic replied 8 months ago

does it hold in park?

To avoid asking you to do something you’ve already tried, can you tell me what troubleshooting steps you’ve already attempted?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I don’t quite understand your question of holding at parking position. The gear shift feels like free wheeling, no engagement at all. I did not do anything else , just got it towed to my driveway.
Transmission Mechanic: Tim's Auto Repair, Mechanic replied 8 months ago

when you put the shifter in park,,does it hold the vehicle so that it doesnt move?

Transmission Mechanic: Tim's Auto Repair, Mechanic replied 8 months ago

are you saying it feels as if the shifter isnt shifting the transmission or is the shifter clicking through the gears but just doesnt pull the car?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
It is locked in the park position, I guess. The cable must be broken. It is not moving to any other position.
Transmission Mechanic: Tim's Auto Repair, Mechanic replied 8 months ago

yes..if that is the case,,i would think your cable is broken and must be replaced
