i am a bit of a noob. But I bought a 1984 Cressida 2nd generation for $400. I got it towed home, put a new battery in it, and when I started it to go get the tags for it it started and ran fine. Only problem was, when I put it in Drive (automatic) it wouldn't go anywhere. Didn't even try. It acted like neutral. So do all the other gears. The fluid is clean and the filter not clogged. It does however make a slight whining noise when I shift gears. And the linkage appears to be working fine. Any suggestions? Please this is my only car right now.

Thanks in advance
Mike

1. how did you tow it? if the rear wheels were on the ground, the trans may be shot.
2. check the fluid with it running in park.

There are several dozen possibilities. I'll PM you a link for troubleshooting.
