My car wont move while put in drive

Asked by Jun 04, 2017 at 01:00 PM about the 2002 Ford Explorer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2002 ford explorer starts, goes in reverse, but
when you put it in drive it doesnt move. I believe it
is also leaking transmissiin fluid as well.

1 Answer


You can check the fluid level, maybe easily. I know on the 2003 the tranny is sealed and the level is not easily checked. Adding fluid, if needed, should allow you to get to a tranny shop for repairs. Other than a leaking pan gasket, the repair will probably be beyond your ability.
