A friend of mine drove her 1997 dodge intreped into a stream. The water was up to mid tire level. The car was in the water for 2 hours. After retrieving the car from the stream, the car ran for a week. Now the car will not engage the transmission. The car starts and idles fine, but when put in gear does not move. Checking the transmission fluid, the ATF fluid is visible THINNER and very light in color (very light pink verses the normal RED). So is appears water has gotten in the ATF.
1) will just draining the ATF and replaing the ATF + filter fix this problem?
2) HAs any other or permanent damage been done?
have the same problem?
