Changing the fluid would not cause this issue your describing. try turning the steering wheel hard to the left or right to unlock the ignition.

My 96 ford mustang v8 m/t wont shift out of reverse.is my transmission done? it happened before but after a couple min of messing around it popped out and was fine for a month


It could possibly be loose linkage where it connects to the transmission. Block the wheels on the passenger side and jack up the driver side of the car, putting jack stands under the front and back.Using a flashlight or drop light, inspect the linkage for loose connections or bent arms. If nothing found, try to manually move the linkage at the transmission. There is a possibility of bent or broken linkage inside the transmission, but that is an involved repair best suited for a shop.

Changed transmission fluid on crv now car wont start


might be that you accidentally disconnected the crank sensor close to the transmission, this gives a no start condition without a check engine light on most cars...

Changed transmission fluid and filter on 2001 mustang now it will not move while it is in Drive


Well..., then just sit in the driver's seat and make noises like as if you're really driving it (ha,ha)sorry,just needed to put a smile on your face. Anyways,when/IF transmission converter is emptied,it needs to refill fully as it makes mechanisms(valves,so on)work to make the car move;now that is IF it was drained from also there. If you drained the fluid from the transmission pan(drain plug),changed the filter PROPERLY INSTALLED,refilled 2 thirds while engine off then running safely in PARK (parking brake on)fill to recommended amount checking with dipstick ,while in the car with brake pedal on,put in drive-neutral-reverse to make transmission's mechanisms make operation until car starts making a movement, then it should be okay. Are you sure you didn't nock something out of place,like linkage for gear changes??. Does the car make any noises when shifting gears??make a clunk noise??does it try to move??;need to know more details for someone to understand and find problem.

Can you bleed the air from the power steering system on a 99 malibu? The unit was making a lot of noise so I changed it with one I pulled at a junkyard. After starting the car and turning the steering...


yes you can, make sure fluid in power steering is full. jack up car and move steering from left to right, til it hits wheel stops. keep checking fluid level. when bleeding air from system, raise idle to about 1500 rpms. then turn wheel left to right. after done recheck fluid level.

Car wont move when transmission is in drive


With the car NOT running and the wheels BLOCKED on both sides of the wheel have someone look for a rod that connects to the transmission. If you move the shifter as someone looks it may be more obvious. See if that rod is still connected to the transmission. If it is all electronic you may have more serious problems and a transmission repairman will need to me involved.
