Question about 2000 Mazda 626
I have a 1996 mazda 626 that wont go into drive. Its like im still in neutral when I try to put it into drive. It goes fine into 1st, 2nd, neutral, reverse, and park. I have to maually shift it while driving. I have heard it could be the inhibitor switch? Or the gear box? I have no idea.. PLEASE help!
Sounds like you have lost the transmission. There are bands that clamp down to lock the transmission into the gear you want. They are controlled by a hydrolic unit located in the trans. The first thing I would do is have a shop pull the trans oil pan and see if it is full of chips of metal. If so you definately have a problem. At the same time they can look at the bands and see if one of them is broken. another cause would be that metal has gotten into the hydrolic valve body and frozen the drive band portion so it will not function. You may also get lucky and have it be an internal adjustment of the drive band. Good Luck, RAC
