Asked by Jun 24, 2018 at 01:45 AM about the 1992 Lexus SC 400

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Why does my car not  move when I shift into gear once it warms up? My car will drive for a few feet and then stalls. The action is similar to when the kick down cable does not work on other cars.

1 Answer


Might be a solenoid issue, telling the transmission torque convertor to lock up at idle putting a drag on the engine. Have a shop hook it up to their equipment to find the issue.
