Clutch isn't being released when pedel is pressed in. you need to either bleed the clutch, or adjust the clutch.You may have a pitted slave cylender. this means that fluid is passing around the piston in the slave cylender. if so you need to rebuild or replace the slave cylender. there may be other reasons too but these are some of the most common reasons

Transmission Question


It sounds to me like the transmission is starting to fail. As the clutches inside the transmission wear the clutch pack gains additional clearance. Your pressures in the transmission will be higher with cold oil so it has a tendency to build a bit of extra pressure, but it's also slower in flowing through the transmission. This results in a harder hitting first gear. As the transmission warms up, it will reduce the viscosity of the oil and work fine. Cold weather kills automatic transmissions. Let it warm up before driving it or it won't last long. It will require an overhaul soon.

My car will not go into gear unless its started and already in gear. Ill pull it outta gear and won't go back in while running.


Your transaxle will have to come out & new parts installed,
like synchro rings

You should be able to push in the clutch & shift thru all
gears nice & smooth,with no engine running.

That said I wouldn't rule out clutch issues also,but not
for the shifting issues.

Why won't the gear shift move to drive

Why wont car shift into gear


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

You may want to start adjusting the brake pedals. If it detects that you are not stepping on the brake then it won't shift into gear.
If the gear is moving but won't shift gears while running then you may want to start on replacing the transmission fluid. It can be burnt that's why it's not operating properly.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

1998 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL TRANSAXLE NOISE


Is it possible that the sound is happening every time you hit 14 mph after a fresh start? The TC does a ABS check 14 mph that runs the pump for a second.
