SOURCE: 2002 Ford Escort gear shift linkage is stuck in

It's the fuse that is blown which prevent's you from moving the gear from Park to anything else. The fuse box, on a 1995 Escort is on the drivers' side by the break pedal, I'm not sure where your fuse box is. Check the guide to see which fuse is the one for "Stop" and replace it, problem is I'm not sure what causes this and it's driving me crazy because it keeps on doing it. I've gone through so many fuses, there has to be a short somewhere...but I have no idea where.

SOURCE: automatic shift lever won't shift the truck into

the linkage has slipped and is not in the notch on the shift lever so slide he shift lever into place then tighten the bolt down so it will hold the shifter on the trasnmisson, this is caused by a loose nut on the shifter nut.

Transmission


It sounds to me like you have a issue with your linkage . Get Under the car make sure you chock the wheels and have someone get in vehicle and at temped to shift the gears . You could have ran over something that is causing the linkage to be stuck . If that don't work I would suggest you get a Transmission Mechanic to look at it . Don't force it because you could bend the linkage and your problem will just get worse.

Vehicle stuck in park will not change gears. Will start fine


does the gear shifter move? if the gear shifter moves and it wont shift then you have broken linkage, if it wont move you may have ignition linkage problems or the button may not be pushing in all the way, also the brake pedal is tied in too

Ok my 1986 Fiero 2m4 wont come out of reverse it was hard 2 shift gears all day yesterday until about 4 o clock now the transmission shifter just moves around freely but like i said its stuck in reverse...


Manual or auto?

It's gotta be the cable/linkage. You just have to inspect them and see if something is worn or snapped. They get old and crusty and need to be replaced eventually. I had to replace my shift cable on my 86 se with the 5-speed getrag.

Hopefully it's not the actual tranny....?

Shift gear stuck


Almost certainly worn linkage rather than a transmission problem. Lubricate all the linkage joints. Might work after it cools down, too.

Your shift linkage has come undone. Jack the car up and climb underneath. You shift linkage is either com undone from the trans or you shift stabelize bad has come undone at the shift arm.
