Astro van won't shift into gear


My van wouldn't shift from park into gear in the parking lot at work. I had to have it towed. They replace the switch that is spring-loaded to the brake pedal. When you press down on the pedal, that switch pops out and allows you to shift gears. In this case, the spring didn't release so the van wouldn't shift out of park. They replaced the part but I still had the same problem (did they really replace it?). I took the part out, sprayed with WD40 and it's been working great for years.

I don't know beans about automatice transmissions and the average person can only check the fluid levels and take it to a transmission shop if it is more serious.
As far as the engine goes, you need to localize the problem because with the other indications it might not be the normal stuff. So, what I would recommend is that you take the serpentine belt off and try to turn the crank with a large wrench (CW only) with the car in neutral. If you can turn it, then it is probably not your engine freezing up. If it won't turn then the transmission is probably not disengaging from the flywheel - maybe the torque converter.

If it does turn over, then you can put the belt back on and try to jump start the car with another vehicle or the boost function on a battery charger. It it starts then you know to look at the charging system - battery, alternator. If it doesn't start then the starter or the starter reley.

I would guess that something inside of the transmission has failed and there is no longer a mechanical connection between the motor and the drive axles regardless of what gear you attempt to move in.[sheared splines, broken planetary, etc.] Often when this happens you won't hear any kind of noise because of the failed parts being inside the transmission case...instead the car just won't go anymore. You could have a CV drive axle joint that has failed but generally they will make some noticable rattling or grinding noise as they churn away when you try to go forward or reverse. If something has failed inside of the transmission then the transmission will need to be removed and repaired. It if is just a drive axle joint that has failed then that can be replaced without doing anything to the transmission. Hope this helps and good luck!

My car won't start sometimes and when I move the gear shifter a little it starts right up. Is the neutral safety switch bad?


No, It sounds like it is working fine, just a little worn out, A lot of cars have to be coaxed into park to start. Just moving the shifter will do it, the switch itself is very sensitive, as you have found out. It only has to move a fraction to lose contact. It is a fairly easy job to change if it drives you nuts. But I wouldn't fix it till it breaks. It is located on the left side of the tranny where the linkage hooks up. Hope this helps.

Check your transmission fluid level as noted on the trans. dipstick. If low add to proper fill level but Do Not overfill ! If it is low this may solve your problem if not it mat require shop service. Possibly a new transmission filter or maybe worse a trans overhaul.
