I was driving to work today and after about a mile my car starting acting crazy. When I hit the gas pedal gently, the tachometer went all the way to 8 and my car was going forward & backward & I couldn't get the speed up. I thought it was about to stall. I had no clue what was going on. I was freaking out because I had pulled out in front of a huge truck & then I couldn't get my speed up & the meters were going nuts. (the truck driver wanted to kill me & almost hit me) Then I saw on my dash that there was a 1. I'm guessing I must have knocked it into first gear...? I have no clue how to drive stick. I had to stop in the middle of the road to put my car in park and then back in drive. Thank goodness that was the issue. Once I put it in Drive, it was fine. I know for sure that when I took off this morning the car was in Drive because I always look at the dash to see. I have no idea how it got into first gear. I'm sure it's my fault & not the car's, but if it happens again & I'm not able to stop in the middle of the road, I don't know what to do!
