2000 Mercury Sable double overhead cam Transmission problem

Trans will go in reverse and drive in reverse fine. In "Drive" it will drive but won't shift through the gears. Is there some easy fix like a sensor?

1999 sable drives fine but occasionally after coming to a stop will not move forward but if you put it in reverse it will go in reverse. If you turn off car and restart it will once again drive fine.

Sounds like an electrical problem, not a mechanical problem, with the transmission. Take it to a transmission shop for diagnosis. Cost to repair should be considerably less than rebuilding the transmission.

If you are sure the shifter is connected to the transmission, it could be a long list of things inside the transmission.

My 2000 Sable won't move though gear selector appears to be in tack. Was making a left turn heard a loud pop on the right front side of the car then what appeared to be a rubbing or scraping noise...

the problem has to be in the linkage inside the transmission which means that you have to take into a mechanic to have them fix this because if you do not know how to take the transmission apart yourself is the reason why to take it to the nearest mechanic. Sorry

Since the fluid level is okay, I think your gonna need a rebuilt transmission. Tow it to a good transmission shop.
