SOURCE: 2000 ford taurus- wont shift into gear

first check drive axels , since you replaced front springs on struts i assume. it is possible that one of the axels popped out. next if thats ok check fluid level in trans with eng OFF should show over full make a srcribe mark on the stick. then START the eng it should go down to full or just below depends if trans is full or a little low . if level does not drop approx.1/2 in or so then have a transmission shop check for bad splines in torque convertor, that is a comon problem in that car, year and milage do not play a roll a large roll in parts failure in trans any more. not like it use-to.

SOURCE: Can't get my 2000 ford taurus out of park

The gear selector is locked until the system detects the brake pedal is being pressed, the brake circuit then sends a signal to the shifter release solenoid to pull a pin back and let you shift out of park, this is a safety feature required by federal law, U need to have someone see if the brake lights go on when you press the pedal, if they don't check the switch at the top of the brake pedal, if the brake lights work then the little solenoid is defective.

2001 ford taurus runs good but will not move when put into gear.


sounds like you have a manual transmission. ?
Worn Clutch plates will give these symptoms
The clutch plates rub together and provide connection between the gear box and the drive shaft if not worn.
Also check the cable for the clutch is not loose and needs a surclip to hold it in at the firewall.
Check if Hydraulic Clutch that there is adequate clutch fluid if low might have leaking clutch master cyclinder

I have experienced this in a car I owned.
Not a lot of fun . Resulted in needing a Tow to repair garage and new clutch was AUD $1200 a couple of years ago.

Shifter moves but gears dont shift


It could be the torque converter, but I don't know how he would be able to tell it was that and not the pump or a solenoid failure without taking the pan off the transmission or running a pressure test.

2005 ford taurus can spin front wheels by hand when its in park


Sounds like maybe a halfshaft (axle) problem. Maybe has a bad cv joint. If that's not it then possibly the spur gear in the ****** broke.

This is kinda funny please don't judge me I was


This sounds like you may have broken a transmission line or damaged the transmission pan. the oil has leaked out of transmission that is why it will not move,

Do not start car until you have repaired the leak, running the engine will damage the transmission due to low oil in it,

you will need to add 2qts of transmission fluid then jack up the front of the car and look for the leak, if you do not see it then have someone start the car and look, you will be able to see it leak out, i thing it will end up being the pan, good day.

2003 Ford Taurus--about 1 week ago heard noise under hood but car continued to drive okay. Then, I went to go to work, it cranks fine but when I shift into a gear, car does not move. Looked at belt under...


You say transmission fluid levels are good. Is it a nice red or pink color or is it an orange, brown to black color. Does the vehicle actually shift into gear, the linkage from the gear shift from park to drive or reverse maybe be unhooked you can check that out also. Does the trans fluid smell burnt, should be kind of a sweet smell. Good Luck

My 2004 ford Taurus wil not go into gear. It will come out of park, the fuses are good, the fluid level is good, but it won't move. It has 94,000 miles, almost all of them hiway


Hi.


It is probably the brake interlock. Check if the Stop lights are turning on. Test and eventually replace the brake interlock fuse and the stop light fuse.


Brake interlock is fuse #27 (32 on 2003 model), stop lamp and speed control is #17.


Replace them and test again.

Cant get my gear shift out of park on my 2003 aztek


turn the key on 1 position from off and attempt to move the shifter if you can move the shifter you have a faulty park lock solenoid (even if u can move the shifter it still more than likely is the park lock solenoid) have it replaced this is a nuisance yes but does not in any way affect the safety and operation of the vehicle

to use it with the faulty part turn key on 1 position move shifter to neutral and start car then move shifter to desired position

I cant find where my ford mustang 3.8l v6 engine is grounded?


Check the starter cables, check the earth cable should be around the gearbox to chassis or anywhere around the engine to chassis.
Does the igintion come 'on' and indicates at the dash panel?
