I had a montecarlo and was doing the same thing, the friction plates in the transmission burned and it would go in reverse but not forward. If you didn't have enough transmission fluid that could've caused them to burn.

SOURCE: my car wont move forward or reverse

Chances are is that the torque converter needs to be replaced. However, the transmssion on this vehicle are only serviceable by transmision shops. No regular mechanic will open up the transmission. When the torque converter fails (clutch and plates shutters to small pieces) the debri flows in the transmision thereby potentially destroying the gears and/or clogging the filter and pump. Go straight to a reputable transmission shop and let them correctly diagnose the transmission.

SOURCE: I have a 1999 Saturn SL 2. The transmission fluid

The Saturn TAAT takes 6.5 quarts when empty and roughly 4.5-5.5 quarts when doing a drain and refill.

The proper way to check the fluid is to take the car on the highway for about 15 miles of highway driving. This will get the transmission up to operating temperature. Idling will do no good for fluid that is just being circulated and needs to get warm.

Then return to your driveway and place the vehicle in park and keep it running. Pop the hood and look for the red dipstick just left of your battery. That is the transmission dipstick. Pull it out and clean it off then quickly put it back in completely and take it back out (do this somewhat rapidly). Get a reading and repeat to get accurate results.

There is no "check plug hole" that diagram is not correct and the 99 S-series does not look like that. There is no "fill cap" all ATF is entered through the dipstick via a funnel.

Next check your shifter cable where it attaches to the top of the transmission. If you look behind your behind directly down towards the ground you can see a half disc shaped black plastic piece. This is the range sensor. This is where the cable attaches to the transmission. If it is loose or incorrectly calibrated to the proper gear then the transmission will not correspond to the correct gear on the shifter inside the car.

How do I fix the transmission problem? The car is moving forward at neutral, drive and low gear, and switching to parking mode at reverse and parking. The car is not backing up at all.


Transmission may now be toast since you continued to drive it when maybe low on fluid or torque converter had failed. How long since last fluid and filter change? Ever?

2001 lincoln town car--park is now where reverse should be--suggestions?


Seems like a common sense move would be to take it to a transmission shop and let someone who knows what they are doing put their eyes and hands on it. If it is a simple linkage adjustment he should see it immediately and be able to correct it at little cost.

2002 lincoln wont go forward but goes in reverse


Start the engine and allow it to get to operating temperature.

Place the gear selector in Reverse, then slowly through all the forward gears, while holding the brake.

Replace the selector in Park, but leave the engine running.

Check the transmission fluid level.

If low, add fluid until level is correct, then repeat above procedure and check fluid level again to ensure that transmission is filled to proper level.

If level is correct, perform fluid/filter exchange. If problem persists, see qualified service technician for further diagnosis. Transmission damage will require overhaul to repair.
