Some speed sensors will help the transmission know when to switch gears, but with some of the things you describe, sounds like after driving it that long, damage to the transmission has occured. Also, it could be a bad torque converter. There is also something called the transmission torque converter clutch solenoid, causes the car to buck and cut off. Hope this helps, any questions just contact me.

My car will not go into gear unless its started and already in gear. Ill pull it outta gear and won't go back in while running.


Your transaxle will have to come out & new parts installed,
like synchro rings

You should be able to push in the clutch & shift thru all
gears nice & smooth,with no engine running.

That said I wouldn't rule out clutch issues also,but not
for the shifting issues.

2000 Ford Tarus- Took off from stop sign just fine then car wouldn't go faster. As I pushed the gas, the car reved but wouldn't go. Pulled over and shut car off. Started car again and tried...


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 intrepid suddenly won't shift out of 1st and the auto stick won't work. I assume it's something with the transmission. Is this expensive to fix


Sorry but these vehicles are notorious for bad transmisions, unfortunately it will cost you more than the car is worth to have another transmision put in it.

2002 Sunfire No Reverse


the reverse is the first thing to go out in your transmition. Check trani fluid while car is hot and idling in park on level surface if needed add trani fluid. If problem persists sometimes replacing the transmision screen may enable the reverse usually and new trani is needed.
