SOURCE: cant get the car to drive in gear

We had the same problem and I found this post on the web and it worked! Our car finally wouldn't go forward or reverse and I read a lot of posts saying that even replacing the transmission didn't fix the problem. We just pulled the sensor off today and are trying to find a new one but the car DRIVES now. Thank you to whoever posted this solution. 15th Jul 2007, 21:04 Bought my wife a 99 Ford Taurus at auction. Like others the Transmission sensor gave out. A temporary quick fix is to open the hood, and simply pull off the sensor connector plug on top of the transmission. The transmission will now operate properly in both OD and drive. You will notice your rpm's are steady as your speed goes up - loss of fuel economy due to the failed sensor ( to technical to explain here...). Two things to do: Change out the old transmission fluid immediately - its gonna require synthetic fluid at a higher price, but is worth it as it shifts far better now. And change out the coolant. In fact, I suggest changing out ALL of the fluids and start clean. Until you get the sensor replaced your fuel economy will **** for a while, but its better than not having wheels at all and it IS safe to drive.

SOURCE: 1994 probe goes into gear then pops out & wont go into gear

If the car is in good enough condition you might could save it. You really cannot tell until the trans is disassembled you probably broke a set of teeth (for lack of a better word) in the center of the torque converter which turn the pump for the trans it might mess the main shaft up to but probably not if you did not gas it when it broke. that's what I think it is. there are a couple of other possibilities like valve or pressure ball in the valve body or a seal in one of the clutch packs but I don't think so . I would not try to crank it any more at all though because it could do more damage. IF the car is not in above average condition I would not advise to repair but if it gets good gas mileage like mine and its in GOOD condition then I would price a used trans. a torque converter, pump seal and filter kit. that way you can see which way is more cost effective

SOURCE: gear stuck on reverse. Put on drive gear still in

Have your gearbox checked. Stucked up issue,
is often caused by a worn out part, (Bearing, or
bushing, or geartrain.

SOURCE: shift gear stuck wont move

Check the fuse for the brake lights, it may have the system where you can only select if the brake pedal is depressed. First get someone to check if the brake lights work, if they dont, then check the fuse or connections to the pedal switch.
Hope this helps

Not all the time but when I start the car it starts very hard. When it starts hard like that and I wait a few second and put it into gear it slams into gear and sometimes won't move.


get it serviced?
hard starts are usually never getting a tuneup, (like spark plugs?)
slamming in to gear is normal if RPM is too high in park, is it.
wont move , in any gear, car wont move even in reverse.
and RPM of engine does what , sticks low, like 800 rpm
or screams at the advancement of right foot.
need lots of details. we cant drive car, but if could in 5min flat all that is clear,
eg:
transmission slips
engine weak
engine racing in park too high.
wont start and misfires when it does.
is fuel fresh, not year old.
ever get a new air filter and fuel filter. if filter is outside tank.

When i put the car in drive it wont move an when i try to back up it wont move i have a mercury mountaineer


I'm sorry to say that you will either have to rebuild the transmission or replace it. All transmissions will start out in 1st. gear when put in drive. Oddly enough this is also the same gear that is used when you are in reverse. please let me know if you need help with anything else.

I have a ford ka, and when trying to put it into reverse it made a weird clunking noise. And then wouldn't come out of reverse. I had to really push at the gear stick to get it out. I can't select any...


If the Gear is truck into unless the clutch disengages it wont shift. So start the car move slightly- if no space is a avialable jack up and let the drive wheel move- now shift the gear after depressing clutch. It must shift over now. If not repeat while the drive moves. You can now shift the car to forward gear .
