Emergency brake pedal stuck won't release, there is no release pull, the pedal is push down and push down again to release won't go down any farther to release! stuck on the side of the road right now


Start the vehicle, and while pushing down on the break put the vehicle in reverse and gently use accelerator to go back an inch or four. If that doesn't work continue to rock the car back and forth until the ebrake cuts loose

Ford 5.4 engine is locked. How to unlock?


there could be a few things wrong here ///// if you were stuck in the snow and kept going back n forth from reverse to drive and did not give the transmission the proper time to shift it could be locked in between gears try to rock it back or forth to see if you can get it to free itself the other thing is you could have blown the pump in the transmission or the torque convertor and all these things will lock up the motor if you take out the transmission you'll know for sure whether it's the motor or the transmission that is locked up the crank shaft will not turn with a locked transmission so you've got some work to do here but if you know that this happened in the snow it's the transmission for sure don't buy an engine because you'll be standing there screaming when you find out you wasted a lot of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$/time and still have the same problem

No reverse second is drive and Reverse is Neutral,


Check your transmission fluid, and if that is good you may have damaged the transmission in a fashion that it may need to be rebuilt or replaced.

Drive has little power but drive 2 has good power


sound like transmission got too hot.if you try for a long period of time keep spinning tires trying get out of mud you will burn out transmission bands and drive forward friction plates.when stuck in mud or snow dont keep spinning tires for traction will burn out transmission.

1996 jimmy goes forward but not reverse after getting stuck in snow bank?


the valve body in the trnasmission is stuck thats why you should not hammer the back and forth motion on todays cars/trucks they are not built for that abuse only thing to do is have it taken to the transmission shop and have them fix the problem (transmission rebuild) also make sure you go to someone who will not just put a shift kit into the transmission thats just a temp fix

4LO problem


Sounds like you may have a problem with the power steering pump. Notorious for these pumps shaft to break, causing "armstrong" power steering. As far as the 4wd low problem, ick.

04 Kia Sorento stuck in 4WD Low


The 1st time my 04 Sorento got stuck in 4WD low it was towed to dealership & they claimed it was the switch. Six months later, while on a camping trip, got stuck again. The local tow truck driver saved me hundreds of dollars in towing costs. Put it in reverse for at least 10-20 feet. That's it! He said that he found this to be a common problem. I later asked my dealership why they failed to mention this solution to me. They replied that they thought I knew! Spread to word!
