    Automatic Tranny was fine when I arrived and backed into my parking space but when I went to leave, reverse was fine and no forward action at all. Just nothing. No noise, no go. If left in drive it will creep slightly forward but certainly no torque or acceleration. Is this a dead tranny or something simple? fluid level is fine and not overly burnt or dirty. What's my best fix here?

    I have nothing useful to say...


    However, you are an MR, crack open the tranny and mill yourself new gears ;)

    Check the linkage. Park/neutral switch might be shot. Trans could be shot. Take it to a trans shop if you don't find any obvious problems.
