hi change the engine oil and the oil filter the spark plugs , for a nissan sunny auto 1995 Now for some reason the car will not move when i put it into drive,there`s NO pull or bite only starts to move with loads of gas and then gives up? the guy who did the work is saying now the clutch has gone ? just for only a oil change oil filter and plugs, is there anyway this can happen ? it was driving fine before the work was done , can this guy be at fault? he tells me the clutch can go anytime is this right ? or could he of damaged it while doing the work?  thanks  Dean

If the car was working fine before he touched it then i would say he is at fault .... i cant think of anything he could of touched that would not allow the car to go in gear ..... not unless he drained the wrong fluid ie gearbox instead of engine lol .... is the person a proper mechanic ?????
Clutches dont just go in two seconds. .... however i am not familiar with the auto boxs on the nissan ...

An auto does no have a clutch it has fluid coupling.
As been meddling with oil, I would check gearbox has oil, the right type & right amount as if not the symptoms above could occur.
The guy who done this work could be a complete idiot so I would advise you pay very close attention & be on hand when checking gearbox oil & level to help protect yourself from being ripped off & perhaps gain confidence in the man dabbling with your car ...

lol just spotted that but you beat me to it

hes not by accident put normal gearbox oil in there has he???
if so that will render the autobox as kaput and youll need to completely drain and flush the whole system through and hope theres no damage

drain some of the auto fluid out and it should be a reddy brown colour, if it looks like normal oil you should go back and see him or take car to another garage to be checked as he will have to foot the bill

Air in the tubes ???? From what changing engine oil and oil filter ..... that clearly is false ... changing plugs .... also has no relevance ....

One would imagine someone is blowing bubbles :-S
A reasonable assumption on facts given to us would lead towards an error with the gearbox oil, perhaps partially drained in error when doing engine oil or fully drained & filled with engine oil ! :-O
Either way a grave error from the person involved in doing the work, would assume not a mechanic as doubt even a rouge mechanic would play on a clutch in a clutchless car ! Hopefully nothing more than extreme incompetence rather than a scam & hopefully fully sorted :-/

it does sound like someone has accidently drained the gearbox fluid.
