View Full Version : NEED HELP!!! Runs but won't move

12-25-2010, 08:45 AM

2001 Pontiac Grand AM GT -- 111000miles

It runs and idles fine, but when put it in drive and it barely moves??? I rev it to 3000rpms and still the car just barely moves?

It is like the engine is turning the RPMs but the wheels just wont move with it...

THANKS for any and all assistance.

Is there transmission fluid in it? Is there enough fluid in it?

sounds like what happened to me. There probly isnt any transmission fluid.

Check the trans fluid level. If that is ok, then it could be a busted seal inside the trans not allowing it to shift into gear.

I didn't think of the obvious. I will be checking in the morning...I sure hope that is all it is.

Such a stupid flaw in the design! Hope you dont have to get in snow to check the plug...

Yeah not very happy about this GM maint free transaxle. I have to figure out how to get it off ground keeping it level so I can check level from plug. Oh yeah while running...
