Question about 1997 Mercury Cougar XR7
Started car,shifted into reverse & backed up 5 feet,shifted into drive - nothing! back to reverse - nothing - no click into gear. totally immobile.locked in park(wheels locked-no neutral).(floor)shifter stops at reverse and drive,but not neutral,d2,or d1-slides right past.
trans? linkage? please help,i'm literally stuck.
Sounds like a linkage/cable to me. Disconnect the linkage at the transmission and move the shift actuator by hand to see if there is the same things happening. Don't try to do this with the engine running unless someone is holding the brake inside the car.
