SOURCE: car wont shift into any position

Hi, I know this may sound saft but are you keeping your foot on the brake whilst trying to engage gears?
If you are then maybe a inhibitor switch problem.

SOURCE: gear shift won't move out of park sometimes

look for transmission shift interlock solenoid fuse.or a bad brake switch will cause transmission not to come out of park.

SOURCE: shifter handle moves but does not change gear

I would suspect a broken or disconnected cable from the shifter to the transmission.
Quite an easy repair really.
Good luck.

SOURCE: Hi. I have a

Sounds like a low pressure problem that commonly is due to low ATF fluid condition so check your fluid level and color first. If the fluid is at the right level with the engine warm running and in the park position, there are some other low pressure problems with this transmission.

On this vehicle are common failures of the Transmission Pressure Control Solenoid (PCS) and the connections at the Transmission Pass-Thru Connector.

Keep in mind that this problems with the Transmission PCS are identified in TSB # 00-07-30-002B. Problems with the connections of the Transmission Pass-Thru Connector are identified in TSB #02-07-30-022B.

Remember, the cost to replace the Transmission PCS is estimated at $350 The cost to repair the Transmission Pass-Thru Connector is estimated at $150.

Hope helps.

My actros 3351 firetruck,is not engaging in reverse fully and jumps from the reverse when the truck is moving


I assume this is a standard tranny. If so, you could have a worn shift fork or a bad shifter. If you can hold the shifter in reverse and everything works OK then replace shifter else, rebuild tranny.

Check your brake lights, if the system doesn't get a brake lights on signal it will not release park, it is called the park lock system.

Transmission question


hi i will try help, well yes it will have adverse results on his gear box if he is putting it in drive and then reverse before the vehicle stops going forward, ile explain, when you engage the gear and drive forward, the centrifugal force is sent to the torque converter This engages reverse gear within the transmission, giving the ability for the vehicle to drive backwards. In order for the driver to select reverse, they must come to a complete stop push the shift lock button in (or pull the shift lever forward in the case of a column shifter) and select reverse. Not coming to a complete stop can cause severe damage to the transmission. Many modern automatic transmissions have a safety mechanism in place, which does to some extent prevent (but does not completely avoid) inadvertently putting the car in reverse when the vehicle is moving forwards. This mechanism usually consists of a solenoid-controlled physical barrier on either side of the Reverse position, which is electronically engaged by a switch on the . Therefore, the brake pedal needs to be depressed in order to allow the selection of reverse. Some electronic transmissions prevent or delay engagement of reverse gear altogether while the car is moving. Some shifters with a shift button allow the driver to freely move the shifter from R to N or D, or simply moving the shifter to N or D without actually depressing the button. However, the driver cannot put back the shifter to R without depressing the shift button to prevent accidental shifting, especially at high speeds, which could damage the transmission.so hope that answers your question and end the feud lol, please vote thanks

Shifter physically won't move into reverse position


To isolate the problem as either an internal transmission problem,or external to the transmission,(shifter or cable malfunction),the shifter cables should be disconnected from the transmission.On the transmission are two levers,if you have a 5 speed trans.One is the neutral gate lever,and the other is actual gear shift lever.Manipulating the levers manually,see if the transmission will engage into Reverse gear.If the transmission engages into Reverse gear,then the problem is either in the shifter mechanism itself,or the shift cables.If the transmission will not engage into Reverse gear,then the problem is either an internal problem,or possibly a switch seized up,like the reverse gear indicator switch.At this point,i would have an assistant sit in the car,engine off,and run through all the gear selections with the shifter,while watching and looking for a cable not operating to its full stroke.Take the console apart to access the shifter mechanism and visually inspect the assembly.Disconnect the cables and operate them manually,one at a time,while an assistant watches them underhood.Visually inspect the shifter and it's mechanism for a broken,cracked,or damaged component.At this point,the problem should be identified and repaired as either cable or shifter malfunction.

Shifting in drive from park position


that means the pin that the knob presses down is stuck on something. if you take the shifting panel off it showes everything. then there will be a plastic guide. see what the pin is sticking on and there you are.
