Won't move

Asked by Apr 25, 2017 at 02:28 PM about the 2004 Ford Explorer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2004 explorer won't budge. No slipping or problems
shifting before. Had a new key made at the
dealership about a week earlier, stopped to get gas
and it wouldn't move. Got it home and started it
and it was fine. Let it sit a couple hours and went to
move it and it won't budge. Any ideas??

If the engine starts, all you can do is check the transmission fluid. The system is closed so there is no dip stick. Google the procedure for checking the level. If level is ok, you need a tranny person to check it out.
