Our Dodge Dynasty of that same vintage had to be overhauled. I was informed that the 4 speed transmission had design flaws and were failing all over the place. We were told how much the rebuild was, and since it was cheaper than a new one at the dealer, we went to Aamco to get it fixed. Unfortunately, the price kept going up and up and up, until if finally cost more than the new one did, but with the same sluggish shifting problems. This was the last in a series of major design problems with American cars. I followed the rules, bought American, and paid the price. I am on my third foreign car now, and have not replaced anything but tires, brakes, etc. My Suzuki Sidekick has 114,000 on it, runs like a top, and I finally had to replace a blinker switch on it. Only problem. My friends who buy American (what car is REALLY American?) are having constant troubles. I just got sick of it. I'll stop ranting now. Sorry. Had to vent. Hope you get it fixed cheaply instead of what I ran into. A newer transmission may have the design flaw fixed. Hope so.

Not sure what you mean by "won't shift"

If you move the lever and nothing happens, then I would first check and see if the linkage is broke.

If it is electronic and does not have mechanical linkage, then wouldn't know what to do.

If you cannot move the lever and it is in park, then I would first check to see if the parking prawl is stuck. Sometimes if you park on an incline there can be so much pressure that it won't come out. If that is the case, you might need to move the car.

If it seems to go in gear and nothing happens, then could it be possible (but unlikely) that your cv joint or axle is broke. Much more likely that something went wrong with your torque converter or the pump, and there is no pressure.

Hard to say what else could be wrong without more information. How did the fluid look?

When that happened to my Plymouth Acclaim it cost me $1600.
