MY daughter had her oil changed and they didn't put the fill cap back on tight. This engine has a fair amount of blow by so it spewed about 2 or 3 quarts around the engine compartment. Since then the alternator went out. She cleaned the engine but not extremely well. I say this as it may be part of her problem. Se called me the other day and said the car was making more noise than normal and it didn't have much power. After looking at it, I realized it was always in the same high gear. I manually put the shift lever into park, neutral drive, etc and it was fine but no first or second gear. I drove it again and manually put it in second and then first. I'm pretty sure it downshifted into second and abslutely sure it went into first. Unfortunately, it's now stuck in first gear. Reverse and neutral still work fine. I'm hoping this can be some kind of electrical problem that's not too expensive. Let me know.
have the same problem?
