Only reversing but can't drive forward
Sep 12, 2017 (2 years ago)
I recently changed my atf and and used wrong ATF then my car was not changing gear smoothly it was having a jerk on changing gears.The accelerator became stiff. Later on it started losing power in Drive, until now it can't move in drive. I called a diagnostic team that picked up speed sensor and i changed it but still the car is not moving. Now the diagnostic picked up solenoids but i changed them and still not driving. Now the Handbrake and ABS lights are on. I need help as soon as possible

That used to be classic symptoms of failing/failed clutch plates in the auto box.
If I recall the wrong fluid or water contamination caused the bonding agent to fail and the friction material just came off.
Usually very easy tosspot by the colour of the fluid.
Compare some from the box to a sample of new fluid.
Should be the same colour.

You probably got umpteen faults , throttle pedal , throttle body , needing to check h / brake + ABS sensors .If the clutch packs were knacked you usually can smell the burnt ATF and it will badly discoloured .Also if incorrect amount filled and run with wrong fluid it can cause serious problems .You will have to work on one fault at a time .
