Customer Question
I have a Ford...

I have a Ford Fiesta 1.4 petrol 2004 automatic, turning it into gear it shows up on the dashboard that it's on the gear, but the car doesn't move

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the brake switch?

I've only just bought it so won't be able to tell how old the transmission is. It sometimes refuses to start up as well

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Fiesta?

2004

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Fiesta yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, nothing so far as we're trying to figure out what the problem is

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No that's all for now
