Could be the shift linkage needs adjustment, shift linkage bushings are worn or the transmission has an internal issue causing it to pop out of gear. Price anywhere from an hour or two of labor to a complete transmission rebuild

How do I fix shifting problems of my van?

Down shift manually should over ride any electronic controls. Two possibilities I see. Could be the valve body was tightened enough, blow by, You did have a sensor replaced in the transmission(OD). The other is the range selector switch on or in the transmission is bad. This switch/sensor tells the ECU what gear you want it to be in. Just a note. Depend on years. The throttle body and transmission have to go threw a relearn procedure when replacing parts. Takes a scanner to do this.

I have a Lexus RX300 1999 model and have this recent problem. engine running normally but gear gets stuck in Parking mode and won't shift. had to depress the emergency button on the gear shift and

Hi there,

Some automatic vehicles rely on the brake switch (mounted on brake pedal) to be activated by depressing brake pedal. This signal then operates a relay and switch, to release the gear lever.

Firstly, I would check the brake pedal switch (are your brake lights working?).

If brake switch is confirmed OK, then inspect the relay (and related circuit components) of the gear release switch.

88 ford f150 gear shift lock

A common cause when the gear is on the steering column is a worn out pin. That pin holds the lever to the shift assembly. Try removing the gear shift lever and examine it.
  • If the bushing between the pin and the shift is worn out, replace it.
  • Examine the tip of the the gearshift and replace the shift if it's worn out.
Hope I've helped. If not please feel free to contact me with more details.

I shut it off one night and won't start next day. Nothing, like a battery dead but that wasn't the problem. A guy said something EEC relay? I called part store, they said no such thing. Another guy said...

A neutral safety switch could very possibly be the problem. It could also be as simple as the gear shift linkage. Over time, the gear shift will develop some "play" and eventually won't line up with P,R,N,D,1,2 . To test this, hold the gear shift all the way to the left when trying to start the car. If it starts then you've identified the problem and need the linkage adjusted. If not, investigating the neutral safety switch would be a good idea.

Car stuck in Park, wont switch gears

check to see if the brake lights come on it may be a problem with a brake switch under the dash not letting the shift lock release. there may be a seperate switch just for it so check and see it there is two switches touching the brake pedal lever if the brake lights come on.

1994 Ford Ranger won't shift into drive

In 9 out of 10 cases when I see this problem in the ranger, it is the planetary gear in the transmission. It is made of the cheapest metal available. It breaks usually from going to park before the truck stops or switching from reverse to drive while still rolling. Just a Idea , But I hope it isn't that . Reverse will work fine for a while, and have no forward gears.
