    i bet somehow either the nasa moon landing conspiracy is coming back to haunt poor matt, or it is bush's fault. i hope it changes. matt deserves better.
    the harder i work, the luckier i get to pay more taxes so someone unluckier than me doesn't have to work so hard

    Okay...enough with the jokes. Sorry. I'm assuming you've already checked for leaks, low fluid, welded clutchplate issues. Old Cameros used to have a vss plug that went into the 'puter. (I seem to remember them being a 3prong dude. They were notoriously bad.) Otherwise, it may be the slave cylinder. My 2 cents. Good Luck!

    Didn't know if it was auto or manual. Classic auto remark in earlier post reminded me of my old Camero. If manual, usually slave from description I've gathered.

    I don't know for sure either. All I am going by, is Matt sayin he shifts the car into "drive".

    Okay, has anybody heard from Matt? Is he sittin back somewhere, lurking?

    you can rightly assume they are synonyms for the offending word in the quote. i hope he's with ticket writer so at least he could get to the bar without having to wear out the bottoms of his shoes(thanks be to lightning hopkins)

    Automatic.

    Could it still be that even if it is an automatic? The only thing I know about cars is if I keep the oil changed, it'll run forever.

    If not, shift linkage is probably off, that would be the good news. I am assuming it is an automatic? I had a Volvo S80 where I had to open the hood and get a broomstick, push down on the linkage and then it would go. Tow-truck driver showed me the trick.

    Otherwise, that is automatic clutch stuff which is crazy expensive usually a rebuild of the tranny. What kind of car? There is one Mercedes where the wall between the tranny cooling and the coolant cooling would fail, getting coolant into the tranny. Bad news, and Mercedes does not automatically fix. In fact, they are jerks about it.
    Yes sir..the gears will shift into reverse, neutral, drive, 3,2,1 but, the transmission itself stays in park. It happened completely out of the blue.

    You also mention that you "shift into all gears..." Does this include reverse?

    Does it feel the same as it always has, when you shift? OR, does it feel easier or harder to move the shifter?

    IF the gear selector movement feels the same as it always has to you, it could be expensive.
    Yes..on all accounts. It feels the same as it did before.
