I have a 2004 ford freestar. Was running fine. Got in it and will start, I can move the shifter through gears but will not move. Was told everything from whole transmission, sensor or cable. Ideas??

If you feel it click threw the gears on the shifter, the cable is fine. No click, the cable came off or broke. Clicking would be a transmission problem could be several different things. But Ford did have a problem with the servo. You can access it from the bottom. Looks like a cup with 3 bolts mounted to the transmission. I replaced the seals and springs in it.

2003 ford focus slips from park to reverse without the car being on or using the push button on the shifter

There is a cable that runs from the shifter to the ignition switch. Either it has broken or someone disconnected it so they wouldn't have to replace a solenoid in the shifter or switch.

I have a 2004 ford explorer xlt the gear shift broke when i went to put it on is that possible???

hello! will try to assist! you may have a broken shifter cable.when you turn the key to 'on' or 'start' the shifter just moves sloppy,or easily. right? thats a sign of broken shifter cable.i have a 1994 explorer 4x4 there is a shifter cable to your transmission,sometimes they break. the cable will need to be replaced. you can purchase new or used,but if you're going to keep the truck,buy it new. the older fords had a metal linkage to the transmission,without the push button 4x4 option. the new ones have a cable shifter,just another way to get into our pocket book. try this with 2 people [for safety] put your emergency brake on,turn key switch on. have someone,or you,look under the driverside of truck up at the transmission shifter cable to see if it's moving on the side of the transmission.whoevers setting in the drivers seat will have to move the shifter from park to low,with the emergency brake on so the truck does'nt move or their foot on the brake,that works too. just make sure your safe as the truck cannot move while the person's shifting the gears while you look under the truck for shifter movement on the transmission.if no movement on the transmission while the gears are shifted,the cables broken. there,i went through the steps to insure your safety,and to give you a solution. just always be safe when you're under or around a vehicle that you're trying to repair.remember this always!the vehicle can be replaced,you can not! thank you for choosing fixya com and i look forward to assisting you in the future.

You need to remove the trans pan to inspect the parking pawl and rod. Hopefully you can adjust or repair with trans in your vehicle.

Also don't assume your cable etc is okey. You don't know that. You may be able to adjust it and be okey.

I unable to put my 1999 Ford explorer into park. Sometimes it will not start unless I put the key into start bring the gear down and up towards park and hold it. Somebody told me it could be a shift...

Hi, you are on the right track with the shifter cable, when the shifter cable goes bad it stretches out and doesnt allow the transmission all the way up into park. these cables arent to hard to replace but do require some moderate interior disassembly. if you do not feel comfortable with this repair you should take it to a repair shop. also the shifter cables can sometimes only be found at the dealer which is a little pricey.

You did not need to remove the heater box to replace the cable. There is a hole in the floor the cable passes through.
