The heated o2 sensor is bad or has a bad connection it is usually the sensor after the catalytic converter and from the description you gave i wold say it is the one after the converter and you need to check any engine speed sensors crank sensors or cam sensors. the crank sensor would be by the crankshaft im not sure where the cam sensor would be and some vehicles wont have one im not sure if yours does

2003 Ford Focus won't go into reverse


You can check the fluid level of a transmission only while the motor is running while in park or neutral (wheels blocked). Remove the rear dip stick (transmission) and wipe it with a rag, reinsert it completely. Repeat the procedure and note the level, which should be between or in the hash marks (towards the end of dip stick) and add accordingly.
If the level is okay you will have to check with transmission shops and the Ford dealer for quotes ( and check on Google ). The problem you have is either a transmission or computer problem.

Gear shift is locked. we can only shift the car


The automatic transmissions on these vehicles are known to die early in the life of the car and Volvo is well aware that the vehicle has a dud auto transmission. The symptoms you have mentioned are an indication that the transmission has had it. It's basically just running in limp mode now.

You don't say what mileage this vehicle has clocked up but even low mileage vehicles have had to have the entire transmission replaced due to failures like yours. You also, no doubt, have a transmission alert showing on the dash.

The bad news is that a replacement automatic transmission will now be necessary and this will be costly. Even then, with these cars, you could experience another transmission failure after just another 30000 miles or so of driving.

2000 S80 Tranny wont shift to overdrive, and after stopping at a stop sign it wont shift to first, stays in 2 or 3, Turn key off and start the car, tranny shifts starts out in first, still no overdrive....


Greetings Idpeters:
Please check your transmission fluid level. After the engine is warm pull the transmission stick and make sure the level is close to the full line and that the transmission fluid is red and not brown. You may have to change your transmission fluid and screen. If you plan to do it yourself I can advise you on how to change it step by step or you can take it to a transmission shop or dealership for a transmission tune-up. Good Luck
