Gear shifting problems in 2001 Ford Mustang

My gear shifting lever doesn't work in 2001 Ford Mustang. Transmission seems to be fine; if I could manage to put the shifting lever in the ''D'' position, the car drives with no problem. The problem, I can't shift to D. My question is, is it just a matter of changing the cable? Even a bigger question: can I do it myself (a complete novice at this kind of thing)?

There is a solenoid that keeps you from putting the car in drive if you don't have your foot on the brake. There are several things that can cause the solenoid from working. You may want to start looking there before replacing a cable

Could be the park neutral switch. It senses that foot is on the brake pedal so shifter can be moved.

Ford taurus will not engage in reverse or forward


Well, yes the solenoids would cause the transaxle to not function right.
Are you sure the trans is not engaging, or are the brakes locked on ?
You say it shifts fine, you mean you can move the shift lever ?

If I understand you correctly, you have ALL forward gears working, but reverse doesn't?... then the problem is in the transmission itself or the linkage on the trans linkage into reverse.

My 2001 Ford Mustang v-6 automatic gear shifting lever wont move


The shift interlock does not allow the car to shift out of park unless the brake pedal is depressed.  Quick fix is with the car running to set the parking brake and turn the car to off and remover the key.  Put the key back in and turn one click to on.  Shift the car into neutral and you can start the car and go.  The repair for this is either the brake switch located on the brake pedal being replaced.  I had a broken wire leading to the switch that caused the problem.  It also can be a blown fuse.

Does my Mustang have a low gear?


the C4 automatic transmission is a 3 speed transmission, it shifts by hydraulic pressure controlled by a governor and actuators, I would check your linkage to see that it is hooked up correctly to allow movement through all range selections, disconnect the linkage at the trans and see how many detents you feel while moving the lever back and forth, make sure to chock your vehicle as moving the lever from Park may cause the car to move. Let me know what you find, hope this helps

I have a ford mustang 2001 that will not shift out of 2nd gear it will shift fine 1st and 2nd but not out of second gear


ok, you may not like this, but it happened to me on a 01 mustang i was working on in my shop. It came in with engine noise, and after solving the noise on testdrive i experienced the same thing. It ended up being the torque converter, which ofcourse is inside the bell housing. Once the new converter was installed and filled it solved the problem. Also look at the dipstick, in park running when warm, inspect the fluid. smell it. does it smell burnt? is the color a bright transparent red? or is it a dingy maroon? you may be able to do a transmission service (filter and gaskit) and be ok.
Good luck!
