A bad torque converter can cause this condition.

SOURCE: Transmission shifting proublem M5R1 1997 FORD RANGER

You might have to try to adjust the freedom of clutch pedal,
The noise during shifting can be adressed to exessive wear clutch parts or again it might be a sign that indicates the not complete enabling the calutch
To find out what is causing the noise, set the parking brake, place the vehicle in neutral and start the engine.
If you hear growling or grinding noises when the clutch is engaged, the cause is the transmission input shaft bearing.
A squealing sound that occurs when the clutch pedal is depressed and held is usually caused by a bad pilot bearing or bushing.
A chirping noise that intensifies when the pedal is slowly depressed would indicate a bad release bearing.
If you hear chirping while idling in neutral and the noise goes away when the pedal is slowly depressed, the fork/pivot ball contact point is making the noise
Hope that helps.
The clutch adjustment procedure you can find at

Try shifting the trans manually through the gears and see what happens,doesnt cost anything so,possibility valves are sticking in the valvebody after sitting so long,and manually shifting the car will force some of them to stroke in their bores unless REALLY stuck.Could also be shift solenoids.Scan for diagnostic trouble codes.A bad solenoid will have set a trouble code.Just FYI,1991 was the first year Ford went to all electronic trans,i had a 91 Sable.

It's not the clutch, it is the clutch slave cylinder. Check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder and you will see that it will be empty. The problem is the trans has to be removed to replace it.

Why won't it engage any forward or reverse gears?


auto or stick trans, we find out its an AUTOmatic.
this trans is most likely a pure hydramatic.
and no TCM tranny brains then.



check levels next. (by the book dont guess)
check the shift cable, for proper movement. in all gears.
"selections, they are no gears" the automatic shifts via clutch packs not gears. like stick does.
move the shift lever and be sure the transmission end of the cable moves 1 for 1 same; that is moves to all transmission shift positions. (at trans itself)
if not the cable is bad or came loose.
inspections are first never transmission swaps, blind (on a whim);
the FSM book covers all this."chapter, on car service" all cars made have this chapter.. an amazing fact.
next, is get a new filter in the trans.
if clogged, the pump can not suck AFT. (shunted input)
so line pressure drops, and it cant shift.
no need to do the stall tests as it fails 100%
next is line pressure, tests. if that fails,
it needs a rebuilt trans.
but dont take my word , read the book.
or ask your tech to do the tests, he knows, how...

IF you mean that it is not down shifting when slowing or stopping then it is time to have it serviced. This could be a solenoid that is hanging up.

2004 Golf 2.0FSI auto transmission, 77,000 kms, dealer serviced since new, one owner (my wife). Auto trans is slipping and not selecting gears/keeping gears properly. Is this a common problem? VW dealer...


Check fluid level first to ensure that there is enough hydraulic pressure for brake bands and clutches to engage fully. Have the engine running in 'park' and remove the transmission fluid dip stick. Check level, colour and smell: it should be pink/red with no hint of any burnt aroma. If it is tinged brown this is due to clutch surface material wearing away. The acrid over cooked smell will arise if the brake bands are continuously slipping and generating heat. If the level looks low top with extra fluid via the transmission dipstick tube (do not confuse this with the gearbox oil dipstick) VW is a popular make and there will be auto transmission specialists out there with extensive knowledge. It would be no harm phoning around to ask for them to give it an assessment and then to ask the cost of adjustment, overhaul, repair or replacement.
