Meaning there is a significant safety issue that is being covered up! About the problem with no effort to help. The car runs but I cannot shift into any gears.

Only does this intermittently, and you have to stop the car, unhook battery cable, give it a minute, hook it back up and it will run fine until the next time it does it- which could be days, weeks, even months. The failure recurred on multiple occasions. Could not engage car in gear after that. Please review and note my complaint. Are you feeling the shifter move or do you feel the transmission engage the gear? Also, make sure that the pressure tester is not leaking or you will run the tranny dry use teflon tape if you have to.
