SOURCE: My 2002 Taurus wont go into gear

I have almost 30 years rebuilding transmission, use to own an AAMCO, the number one trans of all time that I have rebuilt have been the taurus. It is not your shift solenoid, it would still move and have reverse (reverse does not use a solenoid. The shifter cable could be a problem but I doubt it. It would be very loose if it was broken.

Check your fluid level running and not running, If it si the same level, your pump failed. In any event you probably are looking at a Major repair.

SOURCE: 95 saturn sl 2 5 speed manual transmission, clutch

This vehicle has a pair of shift cables which attatches to the shifter and runs to the transmission shift housing.To diagnose,removal of the center console is in order so you can inspect and verify the shifter/cable connections and movement,then verify the cables move the linkages properly at the transmission . These cables are a fairly common failed part and sold as the set,these are a dealer item and no aftermarket cables are available .

Does it feel like the shifter cable is actually moving the detent in the transmission? I've seen a broken shifter cable in a cavalier a while back with the same symptoms you described. Check the cable where it connects to the transmission. It's under the hood on the drivers side.

2009 Dodge Grand Caravan shifter won't move


Check your transmission fluid level, its not something that is normally checked but can cause problems such as yours. My family had the same make and model as yours and we ended up with a similar problem that revolved around the transmission fluid being too low. You're going to want the car to be warmed up before checking the level, once or twice around the block should do it or let it run for 10 minutes on its own if you can't get it to move.

Autotrans. wont shift to low gear on start off 1997 jeep grand


You mean the shifter works fine, but first gear won't engage? About all you can do for automatics is check the color and level of transmission fluid. If it smells burnt or looks dark or brown colored, a transmission drain and refill might restore it, and might not.
Also, it could be an electrical problem in the electronic shift mechanism. The dealer or a good shop would have to diagnose that.

This is when you put the shifter to NUETRAL, both shifter. The propeller may turn from where the 2 wheels on ground but it turns freely since the gears inside the transmission is disengaged.
