1999 ford taurus.....wont go into any gear..is it the transmission?


if the shifter wont move with brake pedal pushed ck , shift interlock,brake pedal switch,and key interlock. if the shifter moves and trans does nothing ck cable underhood at trans for operation if working yes you have trans problem . ck fluid to see level or if burnt fluid will smell real bad if low trans wont work right.and a trans can fail with out setting any engine or trans codes.so ck engine light wont come on. there is some times a release by the shifter a small cover you pull off and stick a key or small screw driver in slot and shifter will move.

2003 Ford Taurus--about 1 week ago heard noise under hood but car continued to drive okay. Then, I went to go to work, it cranks fine but when I shift into a gear, car does not move. Looked at belt under...


You say transmission fluid levels are good. Is it a nice red or pink color or is it an orange, brown to black color. Does the vehicle actually shift into gear, the linkage from the gear shift from park to drive or reverse maybe be unhooked you can check that out also. Does the trans fluid smell burnt, should be kind of a sweet smell. Good Luck

It wont shift from 2nd to drive, it is an automatic trans. have tried to manually shift & that does not work either.


dont specify what year or type vehicle u have-----first check fluid for level also check color and smell if not reddish [brown or darker]possible internal problem such as a burnt clutch pack or band also if smells burnt something went or is going bad --- newer cars/trucks have solenoids built into trans sometimes a check engine light will come on and advise of a trouble code for the trans electrical problems other problem is something went internal with the fluids sometimes a trans filter replacement fixes if not to far gone

Trans doesnt shift into third gear


If the check engine light is on as well, the van may be stuckin "limp in mode" which keeps the transmission from causing internal damage. Aside from that check the fluid level and condition. Fluid should not be excessively dark or smell burnt. If fluid is not the issue, it needs to be checked by your dealer or independent shop

Wont shift out of 1st


It sounds like the bands inside the transmission are burnt. one way to check is pull you trans dipstick and smell the fluid and see if it smells burnt and the fluid should also be bright red. i have burnt a few trans myself and they did that.lol
