The transmission has electric rods that open and close the flow of fluids enabling it to shift first remove pan then remove electric rods test each for proper resistance thay will do this for free at auto zone.replace the ones you find bad if this dos not solve problem then disasemble trany and replace the rings you may have sezzed them together.but in most cases the replacement of the electrical flow control rods should solve the problem

if you can place it in any gear and it will not move, first check fluid level and condition of trans fluid, if it smells burnt you may have to replace tranny

SOURCE: transmission on 1995 Buick Century, slipping badly

Sir I would first change my filter. When you do you should be able to acertain if anything is wrong by what yuo find in your pan. I think your clutchs are probably bad, but with out being able to scan it I don't have any other ideas. I have been lucky a couple of time before and changing the filter solved my problem. Your car is in limp mode generally you have reverse and second gear. 1st gear and reverse use the same clutches, so I am wondering if maybe you have second gear only!

it does sound like the transmission has packed it in. you might be able to find a decent used one via a wrecking yard and get a local mechanic to install it.
try to find one out of a car with under 100K miles on it.

SOURCE: car starts fine just started this problem,can't

This car has a lock out device as all vehicles have. You need to depress the brake firmly to shift into gear as you may know. The solenoid that retracts the lock out for the shifting is at fault and needs to be replaced. You will see it if you remove the entire top of the shifting console

You need to change out the tranny fluid completly and change out the filter as well. The pump in the tranny seems weak and the fluid may be getting dirty and heavier and harder to pump.

Have a 2003 Dodge Intrepid. I can't get the shifter on the column to move out of park even when I move the steering wheel up,down & side to side. Is it the cable, the link, what?


The shifter needs to be inspected. The shifter assembly is got misaligned, it has to be open and realign.


There are many other possibilities. But if it was working right up till now and suddenly this occurred then its shifter assembly alignment issue.


Also i suggest you to refer these gear shift issues, which are mostly noticed. These are direct links with appropriate solutions to the specific problems of gear ****.

Gear lever loose & wont engage in 06 renault magane manual


Sounds to me that your cable is broke therefor not putting the car in gear. This can happen real easy. Have someone move the shifter for you and look at the side of your trans and see it the cable is moving. If not then you can do a visible inspection of it and see if it is broke.

Shifting when driving


The shifter needs to be inspected.If the gears are shifted automatically.The shifter assembly is got misaligned,it has to be open and realign.

There are many other possibilities.But if it was working right up till now and suddenly this auto shifting occurred then its shifter assembly realign issue.
Also i suggest you to refer these gear shift issues,which are mostly noticed.These are direct links with appropriate solutions to the specific problems of gear ****.

Gear shifter will not go into park


There is a plastic actuator stick under the shift knob. Remove the "horse shoe" clip from the shift knob and remove knob by pulling strait up. You can twist it right and left a very small amount to loosen the knob, but not much.
Once you have the shift knob removed you will see the plastic actuator stick. Push down on the stick and put shift lever in park. If that works, the shift knob or stick is worn out.
Let me know.
Regard,
