Sounds like lack of automatic transmission fluid. Other possibilities are the linkage is broken from the shift to the transmission or a bad shift solenoid.. I'd certainly check the fluid before doing anything else. Hope this helps.

My nissan pulsar 1997 wont come out of park the shifter moves but the car wont change to from park to drive/reverse


Do you feel detent positions as you move the shifter? If it gives little resistance or lacks detents, your shift linkage has come undone (simple fix).
If you feel detent positions but the transmission does not engage, your transmission has failed. Check the fluid... you'll know.

2009 sonta wont go into park


the shifter wont move, or moves to park but park does not work?
try to be clear.
are you on flat ground?
are you against a curb
did you wiggle the steering and turn the key and wiggle the shifter to park? at once.

there is thing called park lock out but works moving from P/N to gears active, R/D/L. usually going to N/P is no problem. unless cables are rusty.

2000 chrysler cirrus forward and reverse do not work


It sounds like something broke inside the transmission. It could be the shifter cable, but usually the car will move in forward or reverse, just not according to the shift indicator if the cable is at fault.

My transmission wont change gears its an automatic 2002


Ok now heres the question???? Will gear shift move at all? I mean can you actually get it into drive or reverse? If you cant move the shifter than it is most likely the brake switch located at the top of the brake pedal. They have been know for this problem. But if you can move shifter and just wont go then your probably looking at linkage problem or transmission problem.

The engine turns over with no trouble but when i put it in drive or reverse it doesnt move


If your fluid is full and shifter is moving the lever on the transmission when you move it, likely the transmission has gone away.

Key doesnt turn


dose your car have a key removal lock ? a lock you have to press befor you can remove the key ?
there is a shift over ride by your shifter. between/around the shifter and the radio (closer to the sifter) there is a small round plastic cover you can remove with a small flat head screw driver. remove this. you will a key or the screw driver and insert it into, what looks like a key hole for your car and turn/press (sorry for being vauge GMC's change year to year) this should allow you to move the shifter into park. make sure the car is off or at lest you have the E-brake on as well as your peddle brakes.

Car wont shift into any position


Hi, I know this may sound saft but are you keeping your foot on the brake whilst trying to engage gears?
If you are then maybe a inhibitor switch problem.
Please Don't press the unacceptable button on me as I'm only giving suggestions.

Wont shift out of reverse,but the shifter moves up and down freel


your linkage on the transmission must be off. try having someone move the shifter while you watch the linkage arms under the car on the trans to make sure its all intact. it could be a loose or broken bolt on the trans causing it to not disengage from reverse this will cause it to not start.

Car stops moving in reverse gear


Sounds like the car is just slipping out of gear. Keep your hand on the shifter when you back up next time. See if you can feel the shifter move when the car comes out of gear. If the shifter moves up when it happens keep pressure on the shifter holding it back like you dont want it to move forward. And of course if the shifter moves back when it comes out of gear, put forward pressure on the shifter so it doesnt slip out. This might work for now but but i know i wouldnt want to spen 700 for that ****. Let me know how it goes.

Starting problem


check your reverse swich. if the switch doesnt see connection, being out of reverse/in reverse, then the ignition switch will not get supply power. look for swiches/sensors by the shifter and ignition swich for possible faulty switch/sensor. hope this helps
