Automatic Gearboxes – Symptoms and Diagnosis (Flairing)

STUCK IN ONE GEAR – When a vehicle is stuck in one gear, there is most likely a mechanical failure in the gearbox itself. There may be a chance that only the mechanical parts in the gearbox needs to be replaced. HOWEVER, if the vehicle is driven once this has happened it can cause damage to the other components and the car should be towed. Once the vehicle is at your workshop, a diagnostic machine will tell you exactly where the fault is and confirm that the problem is a mechanical fault. NO TEST DRIVE MUST BE PERFORMED!!!!
