Hey All,

So I sold my 2000 9-5 Aero to my mom awhile back and she is having some kind of weird issue.

She told me the other day that she started the car up on an incline and it started rolling backwards and would not go forward. It happened twice after starting her up. 3rd time, she moved forward and they got home to safety.

The day she took it to the mechanic the same thing happened.

Does it sound like the transmission is not getting engaged? It's an automatic with over 100k miles.

Could be, I had weird stuff like that happen with my 03 aero, but not in reverse it was usually between gears especially coming off the interstate. Check the trans fluid. Mine was brownish pink... not a good color. I flushed trans and have gotten 15k more out of it. Of course as many warned me flushing can sometimes have the opposite effect and create more problems.
