Did you recently replace your Transmission? If so it was not aligned properly.

SOURCE: My 1994 Lincoln Town Car keeps loosing freon but I

A good way is to have the system charged with freon and A/C dye which will glow a bright green/yellow at the source of the leak.
If no leak evidence under hood after this check then the A/C evaporator coil under the dash is the likely source of leak.
Sometimes the schrader valves (ports where the system is charged) can develop a leak. You could put a few drops of water in the valve and see if any bubbles appear.

SOURCE: when braking, engine revs up and car moves forward

I have a 1997 Ford Explorer with same exact problem. Even worse, my engine revvs so forcibly, that the truck moved forward and struck another vehicles. You need to replace the oxygen sensor annually. My mechanic informed me that this problem is inherently prevalent in Fords. Hopes this helps? Dave

Check the linkages between gear shift and Box could be loose. If these are OK get a transmission service by a good Auto Transmission shop

My scotsdale 1985 drives fine in forwards, but just will not even turn the wheels in reverse, can anybody help me, ?

other than the slight chance that the linkage has come loose somewhere, you might want to look for a good used transmission. Reverse is usually the first thing to go. Should be lots of them around yet.

Shifter is erratic. wont start in park. drives forward when shifted to reverse, sometimes drives forward when in park. sometimes reverse is neutral (which is good so it will start!!!) what is going on???

It sounds like the linkage at the transmission has come loose. Have someone get inside and move the shift lever from gear to gear so you can see where the linkage is on your transmission. You'll have to climb under ypou truck to see this, on the drivers side. check to see that all the bolts are tight. Your switch that allows you truck to start in Park or Neutral is located there.

After removing and replaceing the A-670 transaxle it will not shift to forward gears. Park Reverse and Neutral are good. Did I miss something?

Hi, Check the shift linkage it maybe too sloppy or lose. Readjust and it should be good to go. Good luck.

I have a 94 s10 with 4 cyl automatic trans. i dont have any forward gears only will move in reverse. is my transmission shot?

I'm assuming you has an automatic transmission.

Check for loose linkage between the shifter inside the cab and the body of the transmission.

There is a electronic control box call neutral safety switch. Check for damage to the connector or water inside the switch.

1994 toyota camry 4 cyl no reverse , only forward in N, 1, 2 ,3

It sounds like the linkage may be out of adjustment a bit. If it is not either in Neutral or Park, of course it will not let the starter engage, Try to start it in Neutral if it will not start in Park, or try it in neutral, and pull or push on it a bit. If it starts when you push or pull it, adjust the linkage that goes to the switch, I think it is under the console cover.
