I have a 98 Hyundai Accent and have had this problem several times over the last five years. I can't tell you exactly what is wrong because this seems to be what my car does when there is something that needs replaced...spark plugs, plug wires, coil pack, a gasket, etc. My car is an automatic. I have learned that I have to shift down into L, then to 2 and into Drive when I start from a dead stop. If possible, I pull over and shut the car off and restart it. That usually takes care of the problem for a while. We also drive with the O/D off and it doesn't happen as often. It's a PITA but at least it's driveable until we can get it serviced.

Normal 0 Could be dirt in the fuel tank covering outlet try bouncing the back of the car. It is a fuel problem. Did you let the fuel run low?. If that does not work you may have to blow air through, the fuel line back to the tank from the engine compartment with a foot pump till you here it bubble in the tank.

Can anyone tell me what this is. It is on a 2006 Chevy impala. It has something to do with shifting the car. Ithink it makes the box around my gear indicator work. I.E. P R [N] D 1 2

P=park gear position (no gear selected)
R=reverse gear position
N=neutral gear position (no gear selected)
D=top gear
2=fixed highest gear (used for speed when climbing an average incline and to control speed on decent)
1=fixed lowest gear (used for climbing steep incline or descending slowly)
Note-: Never engage Reverse gear when traveling forwards and never put into Park when moving forward or backwards, also towing most autos should be done no more than 10mph, fast towing can damage the gearbox, also make sure gear is in Neutral when towing.

Key is stuck in ignition

For some reason my 2002 does the same thing. Do you by chance park on an inclined driveway, because we do and setting it in Park with that extra tension may be causing this. If you do park on an incline, as we do, pull in and when you put on the brake keep it down while you set the parking break, so no tension is on the transmission, then move the lever to park. Hope this helps!

My 1998 Ford Taurus Stations Wagon. Transmission is stuck on Park. What do do?

is the car on in incline if so you may have to user some force to get it out, the other problem may be the linkage at trany but this is only if the shifter moves and car is in park, if the shifter doesnt move and theres no incline then make sure the brake lights work because when you step on the brake the shift lock releases the shifter and it gets power from the brake switch so if the light dont work theres no power to the shift lock to release, try these check first. hope this helps,

I put the car in park on a little incline and it would'nt go into reverse it was stuck and i had a hard time with gear shaft, i held the brake and tried to pull it back to reverse and it wouldn't go, my...

The parking mechanism in the transmission has a shaft which slides into a V shaped groove. This is designed to make it easier to put the car in park. The bad part is that it allows for a little movement. The best way to prevent this from happening again is to engage the parking brake when you put it in park, especially on an incline. This will prevent the rollback you experienced from happening again. Hope this helps.

My 2004 honda element shifter wont move from the park position

There are systems to prevent accidentally removing from park.

The key must be on. Sometimes this is a mechanically linked lock, sometimes electrically operated.

Newer cars usually have to be running, and your foot needs to be on the brake. With the engine running, you should hear a quite "thunk" from the transmission area when you put your foot on the brake pedal.

If you are pulling on the shifter while you put your foot on the brake, the actuator will not be able to overcome the friction your pull on the shifter causes.

It is possible that friction in the selector parts is causing the same thing. With the engine running and your foot on the brake, try pushing the shifter farther into Park to see if the actuator will let go.

If it does not feel like you are running into a lockout, sometimes transmissions are just a little stiff to get out of park, especially iof the vehicle is on a front to rear incline, causing it to try to roll against the parking pin.

Gear shift won't move from Park sometimes. It's stuck!

If the car is inclined severly the shifter will be harder to move as more of a load rests on the park gear. You may have to pull it hard but should come out of park. Make sure your foot is firmly on the brake pedal too and the key is in the on position

1995 ford crown victoria gear locked , aleays stuck when parked at P position, need to torn off the engine to move the gear

If you are not parked on an incline when this occurs try another key as it sounds like your ignition switch is not returning to the proper position.Try jiggling the steering wheel the next time and if that works wire-brush the key if it is not BENT and try the process again.

Gear locks when i park on even a slight incline

ALWAYS engage the Parking Brake BEFORE putting car into "Park". When you want to get out of "Park", put your foot on the brake pedal, move gear shifter into desired gear, THEN take down Parking Brake. If you get stuck (gear shifter doesn't move), then try the "rocking" method (recruit 1 or 2 folks to push your car from behind while you try to move gear shifter into desired gear). Good luck!

Jerking movements when in 1st gear.

Most jerky clutches are traced to weak clutch disc coil springs.They are mounted in the clutch disc to absorb shock,but can get weak and can cause a jerky clutch.
Could also be a broken weak motor mount.

Manual transmission

If the engine revs up when you let the clutch out and the car doesn't move then most likely your clutch is slipping and not bitting.
