Not a frozen linkage....the cable could be stretched but you should be able to putit in a different gear and get reverse if that is the case..it my have messed up the transmission as well. take it to a shop and find out what they have to say

1996 Mercury mystique wont go into drive unless its at 3000 rpms and the same when in reverse


Is the fluid full? If so then the transmission has failed and you will need a rebuild.

Stuck in reverse...broken gear cable?


The two items in question are the linkage (center console or column shift) and the neutral safety switch.
Check the reverse light to see is it on.
Inspect and tighten the neutral safety switch mounting bolts.
The center plastic (white gear) is worn.
Replace this switch will fix the problem.

Transmission shifts into reverse nice and smooth...shift into drive and there is no noise nor does it engage at all into drive??? This happened after car was stuck in snow...after shifting from drive and...


u should check ur transmission fluid to see if it is dark (burnt) if so ur gonna b outa luck u most likely burnt it up. fluid will also have a strong burnt smell if it is black. trannys build up alot of heat wen trying to get unstuck in snow an ice. diminished air flow through radiator or trans cooler wen stuck also adds more heat to the unit,especially wen running it hard on ice. they get hot really fast

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
