If you are sure the shifter is connected to the transmission, it could be a long list of things inside the transmission.

SOURCE: Problem with Transmission Not shifting into forward gears

When was the transmission rebuilt and was it done by a shop with a warranty? I have yet to see an alternator cause damage to a transmission but there has been stranger things. If the alternator was hooked up wrong or a wire was left off, the system could be loosing power to one of the ECMS. Or one of the ecms could of been damage if the wrong battery terminal was hooked up. That I have seen. For the moment, it sounds like the car is in limp home, which is a safety feature by the manufactures that does not allow the car to be driven. Are there any lights on, check engine light, transmission light ect when the car is running?

SOURCE: Car wont move.

Could be that your linkage is broken and just looks like it is shifting or a bad tranny module or tranny but i would look at the linkage and see if it is hooked up to the tranny.

SOURCE: 1997 mercury sable won't shift into overdrive

first of all, check the kickdown cable to transmission. it may be out of adjustment. or just bad.if its the cable out of adjustment, it is sure cheaper then a tranny.

1999 sable drives fine but occasionally after coming to a stop will not move forward but if you put it in reverse it will go in reverse. If you turn off car and restart it will once again drive fine.


Sounds like an electrical problem, not a mechanical problem, with the transmission. Take it to a transmission shop for diagnosis. Cost to repair should be considerably less than rebuilding the transmission.

My 2003 Sable will not go into gear. The shift will go to different settings but it does not engage. This happened suddenly. I have checked fluid and diconnected battery to reset computer, but still will...


it could be a couple of things but most common is the forward clutch piston "cracking" (internal) but i would also check the clip that holds the rod in the low/reverse servo located on the back of the trans under a cover (3 bolts hold it on) good luck

2003 Mercury Sable will not move in any of the gears. It went from working perfectly to not moving in forward or reverse. It has 121,000 miles on it.


It sounds like it can be either very cheap or very expensive to fix. If you know a little about cars look under the hood at the transmission which is behind the engine.

The engine should only crank in Park and Neutral. If the engine cranks in any gear the shifter is not attached to the cable anymore. The shifter or cable is broken.

You should see something like a shift cable attached to a stem coming out the transmission. You need to determine if the cable moves or rods move. You may need to look under the floor shift too! If either end is not moving when the shifter is moving, then you just need a shift cable.

However, if the transmission levers are moving and the engine cranks only in Park or Neutral then it is the transmission.

2003 Mercury Sable - transmission jerking


This is a front wheel drive vehicle and has no power-train components in the rear of the car. The noise coming from the back is not related to your transmission. I would highly reccommend going to a ford dealership as these are typically trust-worthy and always use OEM parts. I also have an 03 sable with 101k miles it has always been reliable and has original transmission. It is possible something else is hard ****.

I have a 2003 Mercury Sable as well - my transmission went out with only 52,000 miles. I checked with Ford company and they do not have any recalls on the transmission, however I think it odd that you had the same problem with the same model with in the past 6 months.
