"Car" is a little vague, but your Transmission linkage may have slipped out of position so it's not actually going into gear.

Transmission: Either fluids are low, filter screen plugged, or gears damaged. Needs full inspection and repair at a legal shop.

SOURCE: Car will not chnage from park position when put in reverse,drive

I think there is a cable for this that goes to the transmission. Problems with them are broken cable, or loose cable clamp especially on the transmission end. It is also possible that the end attached to the transmission detent got unattached, or the end to the shifter did. Rick

SOURCE: my car stopped starting.

Based on the information you have supplied, the car is not shifting in to the correct position. So when you try starting the car , it will not allow the starter to crank thinking it is not in park (which it is not...in reverse) I suspect that the shifter cable from lever to the transmission has become stretched over time and use. It can be adjusted at the transmission to shift cable hook up. The connection at the lever base could have also get disconnected. Try that first

This is a tranmission linkage problem. The car may be in park but the linkage arm well sometimes slip of or sometimes just run crooked as you switch through the gears. My car has also done the same thing until I recapped the arm with a new lock washer

SOURCE: the car worked fine, then

Did you notice if your speedometer quit working at the same time? If so, there is a glimmer of hope, it may be a vehicle speed sensor problem. Otherwise, it sounds like the trans just took a dump. Try shifting the trans into ALL gears (including 2 and 1) to see if that makes a difference.

The key lock doesn't lock it in whatever gear it happens to be in - it only locks it in Park. If it's in Reverse now, you should be able to shift it to any other gear, including Park. THEN it'll lock. If you shift it to Neutral now, it'll start there.

Also... you shouldn't actually have to have the car running to shift it - you should only have to have the key in any position except the Lock position. You may still be required to step on the brake pedal, though.

Sounds like the transmission fluid needs to be checked. Either low with a leak, or too much and fluid foaming up. Follow instructions on dip stick.

Could be a sticking switch on the brake pedal arm, up under the dash. On most cars, stepping on the brake signals the computer to unlock the torque converter in the transmission.

Hope this helps.

Transmission does not engage into reverse sometimes.


Sounds like filter and fluid change would be in order. If it does finally go into reverse that would be my best guess. Hope this helps and have a great day.

What engine? Rear wheel drive ?Sounds like shift linkage or cable out of adjustment slightly. Have a look at where cable or rod attaches to transmission for adjustment. If not sure of what your looking for get back to me with info.

Goes in reverse but dont move. in drive only goes 10mrh.


I think you need to bring that thing to a transmission shop. it is a bit surprising that a 5 y'old car would have a bad trans but maybe a transmission shop can save it. GL
