Customer reply replied 4 months ago
ok

Ok so the shifter moves in all gear ranges but the transmission appears to be stuck correct? Is the transmission fluid full and does it look or smell burnt/black? No warning lights on?

no warning light

I haft to check fluid

Ok I just need to know if the shifter is broken or the transmission is stuck internally. If the shifter cable is broken the shifter will feel sloppy or binding and the shifter cable would need replacement. If the shifter cable is ok and the shifter moves but it will only move in reverse,then this would be an internal transmission failure. A transmission rebuild or replacement would be required. If you need more help or information please let me know If I was helpful, please use the 5 stars above to leave a positive rating.
