Put the car on jackstands or drive it onto ramps, take som carb cleaner/engine degreaser and spray the the little linkage on the side of your tranny, then work it through the gears, don't start it, just turn the key ot the first notch and put your parking brake on, try this process a few times, if this doesn't help there may be bigger problems.

05 automatic V6 mustang has a stiff shifter and is hard to put from park to other gears and vice versa. What is its problem and how do I fix it?


The shifting cables can go bad and freeze up. If your mechanically inclined you can set emergency parking brake then disconnect cable on the side of your transmission and see how hard it is to shift. If stiff remove center console and disconnect cable from shifter. Then it should move freely because the frozen cable isn't connected. Replace bad cable or what ever part may have been binding.

Automatic not changing gears


check the shifter mechanism for binding up and not moving freely into positions. Not starting in park but in neutral indicates something is out of alignment with the shifter. May just need cleaning and a bit of oil/grease to fix.

Does the shifter move - in other words, can you change the shifter position, but the car still stays in Drive? Or can you not move the shifter at all? A bit more information, please.

Ford mustang was making a whine/ rattling noise while doing 20-60 mph then after driving 20 minutes she died at a stop sign, would start up fine in park, but died when we tried to shift,what is wrong


Automatic or stick ?
If its an automatic, it could be something in the torque converter or transmission. The torque converter clutch could be stuck.

You have an internal transmission failure, have a transmission repair shop look at this and be prepared to have it removed for repair and rebuilding.

If you have not found the problem yet, check the transmission interlock. Sounds like the shifter interlock switch may not be engaging to allow the starter to activate!
