OK I did see a couple of other suggestions but unless I read your question wrong your vehicle is not running when this is happening and right away i thought of two basic things when parking on a grade. They are first thing is when either parking up hill or down hill you always turn your wheels towards the curb and second you should always use the parking brake even though many people call it the emergency brake it really the vehicles parking brake when you have a ma

SOURCE: manual transmission

If the engine revs up when you let the clutch out and the car doesn't move then most likely your clutch is slipping and not bitting.

SOURCE: pick up still creeps forward with the clutch

It sounds like the clutch is not disengaging the engine from the tranny.
Just as the truck would if you'd come to a stop and not step on the clutch, the engine would die.
There should be an adjustment for this. However if you have many miles on the pressure plate / throw out bearings, it maybe time for a new set.

90 nissan sentra 5spd manual wont go into any gear with or without running or clutch engaged. why?


The clutch isn't working correctly if you have to go through all that to get it into gear. You can check the shifter rails on top of the transmission, but that takes removal and dis assembly of the top cover on the transmission.

My 1999 lincoln Continental wont shift out of "PARK"


Is the vehicle parked on an incline? The parking pin may be slightly jammed. If you can VERY CAREFULLY nudge the vehicle up the hill an inch or two, using another vehicle, the shift lever may free itself.
If the vehicle is parked on level ground, suspect the LOCKING SOLENOID for the shift lever.
Less likely, the parking pin may be jammed (inside the transmission), or the shift lever linkage may have become damaged.

A little late; the problem is probably fixed bu if it happens again, put the car in an open place, turn off the engine, put it in gear, step on the clutch and try to start it.
If the vehicle creeps forward when doing this, it is a sign that the clutch master or slave cylinder (this latter is near the transmission housing) is leaking internally or fluid has been lost and not replaced.

manual transmission clutches wear, making it necessary to adjust clutch pedal position, much like brake pads wear. Check your vehicle clutch adjustment by finding out if clutch pull point, or friction point is approximately I/2 the distance from all the way pressed to the floor and all the way released. does not need to be exactly halfway, but should be close. If the clutch release point is up towards the top vehicle clutch definitely will not hold completely, and allow vehicle pulsing roll. This will indicate clutch adjustment, or even require replacement.

Gear lever locked up


Depends on the year. 1980-1992, if you parked on an incline without using the parking brake, the park sprage in the trans would bind. If that\'s your problem, get a few guys to push against the car if heading downhill push up and vise versa.

The only reason the lower gears are working is because they engage a separate clutch to assist in engine breaking on downhill grades. You have most likely cracked a forward piston in the transmission, and the transmission may need to be overhauled or replaced.

07 chrysler sebring won't shift out of park. have console loose, but it won't come out because the shifter is in park.


Are you parked on an incline? If you are parked heading uphill, you might want to get another car behind you and give you a slight nudge forward and try to shift it out of park. If you are not parked on an incline, press the brake pedal and have someone check your brake lights, if you have no brake lights, it might have your gear shift locked. If no brake lights, check for a loose or faulty brake switch at the brake pedal, Good luck, Gary

The parking brake on my Volvo XC90 does not release when pulling on the release lever, can I release it manually so that I can drive it to the shop for repair?


Not from up top inside the car if it's frozen.

Sounds like it's been engaged quiet tight. So start the vehicle try depressing the release button and lifting up firmly instead of trying to immediately push downward on it to release.

Do that while lightly easing the vehicle in reverse if parked downhill to take pressure of the brake or in drive if parked uphill.

2005 is relatively new and I don't presume the cable has frozen nor snapped in the engaged position.

It's common when the brake has been engaged on a steep incline and drifted forward or the wheels curbed quiet snugly to avert rolling.
