Question about Cars & Trucks
97 Windstar starts but will not move when put into gear....before this problem a vacum hose caused van to jump when put in to gear, replaced vacum hose, it started to run good then it started to jump again checked hose, put in to gear and now it just starts but will not move when put into gear, now i got 2 cars sitting that wont work...please give me some advice on fixing this problem,..THANK U
It could be the vacuum modulator on your auto transmission, sometimes when vacuum hoses fail,split or whatever, they can suck up impurities causing other downstream items to fail. Also check mechanical linkage form shifter in cabin to transmission gear selector arm. If jumps were happening these might have worked loose. Best of luck!

SOURCE: 97 M3 chokes on clold start.
The E36 M3 is natorious for having some minor enigine hesitation immediately after a cold start. My car does this for about the first block both in the morning and after work. Its part of the engine management start routine: you will see this more specifically if you just start you car when its cold and let it idle. Initially you'll notice that the idle tone is a bit more rumbly and rough; but after about minute or so you'll notice that pitch changes and smoothes out. I was alarmed about this too, but after some research, I found it was a characteristic of the design. Just take it easy for the first block and you will never notice. Don't ever cold rev your engine. - Hope that helps.

Check your transmission fluid level if at all possible. If your fluid is low you won't be able to engage any gears as there isn't enough pressurized fluid to shift the clutch or selector in the transmission box. If that's fine, next check the selector link and check it is connected to the transmission (not totally unheard of for it to come loose). Still no joy then it's the clutch...sorry.

You may have more of a problem than you know. Often times there are small leaks in the air bags that cause your vehicle to go down.If your compressor is turning off and on over and over again, it sounds like its going to burn out. May I suggest that you check into conversion kits from Strutmasters. They have great alternatives to these air ride problems. By converting your car to a non air passive system you are eliminating all the headache and saving money and time.
