I would first change the transmission fluid and filter (if it has one) failing that then I would have thought the selector switch.

Could be an internal problem or something with the lincage. I would recomend a place like AAMCO, they specilze in trannys and will look at the problem and road test it for eighter FREE or $25-30. Good luck.

2004 ford windstar replaced gear shift sensor but does not engage however when i move the stick the doors lock and the back up lights com on when in reverse but van feels like its still in neutral do i...


sounds like your issue is either involving the torque convertor, or more than likely the transmission is at fault. your gear shift lever is actually mechanically linked to the trans, the gear position sensor would not cause the van not to move, sorry for the bad news!

Check your transmission fluid level if at all possible. If your fluid is low you won't be able to engage any gears as there isn't enough pressurized fluid to shift the clutch or selector in the transmission box. If that's fine, next check the selector link and check it is connected to the transmission (not totally unheard of for it to come loose). Still no joy then it's the clutch...sorry.
