Question about 2001 Ford Mustang
I changed the transmission fluid and filter and now the car will not move when in Drive? Was fine before I changed it.
Well..., then just sit in the driver's seat and make noises like as if you're really driving it (ha,ha)sorry,just needed to put a smile on your face. Anyways,when/IF transmission converter is emptied,it needs to refill fully as it makes mechanisms(valves,so on)work to make the car move;now that is IF it was drained from also there. If you drained the fluid from the transmission pan(drain plug),changed the filter PROPERLY INSTALLED,refilled 2 thirds while engine off then running safely in PARK (parking brake on)fill to recommended amount checking with dipstick ,while in the car with brake pedal on,put in drive-neutral-reverse to make transmission's mechanisms make operation until car starts making a movement, then it should be okay. Are you sure you didn't nock something out of place,like linkage for gear changes??. Does the car make any noises when shifting gears??make a clunk noise??does it try to move??;need to know more details for someone to understand and find problem.

There is a solenoid that keeps you from putting the car in drive if you don't have your foot on the brake. There are several things that can cause the solenoid from working. You may want to start looking there before replacing a cable

SOUNDS LIKE SHIFT INTERLOCK SOLENOID IS STUCK. TRY GIVING A FEW HITS AND PUSH ON AND OFF ON BRAKE PEDAL AND SEE IF YOU CAN FREE IT UP. JAR IT AROUND A BIT LIKE TRYING TO WIGGLE IT OUT WHICLE PUSHING ON AND OFF ON BRAKE PEDAL SEVERL TIMES. DO YOU HEAR A CLICK IN CENTER CONSOLE WHEN PUSHING BRAKE?
