Default Every Gear Acts Like Neutral

My wife recently purchased an automatic 2001 Honda Civic. We took it
to a supposedly very reputable mechanic to check it out during the 30
day trial period. They found nothing wrong. Now it has just stopped
working. Whatever gear we put it into, it acts like it is neutral.
Put our foot down on the accelerator and it whines but doesn't move.
It seems like the engine is not engaging.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Peter.

Is the shift linkage really doing anything?

Instead of reputable mechanic, how about you find a competent mechanic?

I don't understand the question. Changing between R, N, D, D2, etc.
does not make any difference.

Thanks,
Peter.

I guess it's too bad we didn't see this before we bought it

This tells you no more about your specific problem than you now know.

Bob is suggesting that the shift lever is disconnected from the
transmission.

_Is_ every gear neutral? Perhaps you are still in Park. Can you push the car
by hand with the parking brake off?

If it is still in the 30-day trial period, hire a tow truck and take it
back.

I just tried the car out again. Park is not neutral. It acts as I
would expect "park" to act. It is the only setting that does not act
as neutral.

Thanks,
Peter.
