Question about 1994 Chevrolet Camaro

1 Answer

Car doesn't move in reverse or neutral.

I just had the head gaskets replaced in my '92 Ford Taurus. Now...2 weeks later....when I put my car in the reverse gear...I moved back maybe 2 feet. Then my neutral gear won't let me roll back. My brother in-law said that it could be the screen is letting bits of metal from the gears pass. I am a 49 year young woman....who doesn't want to be taken advantage of by a fly by night outfit. Ya know? I would at least like to be a little knowledgable before going to a local mechanic. I would sooo appreciate any advice you could offer. Thank you in advance.

It may be in the linkage that runs from the gear shifter to the gearbox, could be a simple thing, if you have someone under the car while you try to move the gears you may be able to pinpoint the problem.
Make sure the wheels are chocked and the engine is off before letting someone under the car.
I would not think the fine screen inside the gearbox would allow a big enough piece of metal to pass into the valve body etc to cause this problem.
hope this has helped

Leaking, overheating --- *fixed* then puff of white smoke 1 week later

I'm not taking sides in this. So what I am going to say is more or less neutral.
There is a big possibility you damaged the head gasket when the engine overheated last week. The dealership would have no way of knowing this if it was not yet leaking into the engine when they replaced the water pump.
Once the water pump leak was fixed, the system would be running under normal pressure which could finish off the weak head gasket.
You can not see a damaged head gasket without removing the cylinder head. And you have two heads with two gaskets.
So, IF the head gasket is now blown there is a good chance they did not know it last week. It could also be a cracked cyl head or leaking intake manifold gasket. Or all of the above.

Why did the garage tell me $500.00



Put the car in park and set the parking brake. Raise the front of the car with a jack, and support it with a jack stand. Put a block in front of the rear wheel to be sure the car doesn't roll. Disconnect the negative battery cable before proceeding.

Remove the oil dipstick tube, low oil level sensor, oxygen sensor connectors, dual converter Y-pipe and engine rear plate.

Loosen the bolts holding the oil pan one at a time, and carefully remove the oil pan. You may have to use a mallet and a screwdriver to loosen the oil pan, but work slowly so you don't scrape the surface.

Carefully scrape off the old gasket. Clean the sealing surface of the oil pan with a paper towel or clean cloth dipped in solvent, being sure that the surface is perfectly clean.

Apply a small amount of clean oil to the sealing surface and put on the new gasket. Reattach the oil pan and torque the bolts according to specifications. Reconnect the engine components in the reverse order listed.

Lower the car with the jack, and remove the jack stand. Reconnect the negative battery cable.

Replace the oil with 4.5 quarts of oil, then check the level with a dipstick to be sure it's at the fill line. Add more oil if necessary. Your Ford Taurus will require between 4.5 and 5 quarts of oil.

Take the old oil to a garage or a hazardous waste facility for proper disposal.

What gaskets do I need besides my head gasket when replacing the head gasket on a 2004 Ford Taurus, in otherwords what would replace while doing this job car has 168000 kms

Head bolts and head gaskets. Let's see, you will need a lower and upper intake set as well. These head gaskets usually blew because bad fan relays caused the gaskets to blow and warped the heads. Ford used cheap oil pressure switches that leaked as well.
