You have a failed transmission and will need it rebuilt as long as you are sure the transmission fluid hasn't leaked out or it is very low on fluid.

SOURCE: Problem with Transmission Not shifting into forward gears

When was the transmission rebuilt and was it done by a shop with a warranty? I have yet to see an alternator cause damage to a transmission but there has been stranger things. If the alternator was hooked up wrong or a wire was left off, the system could be loosing power to one of the ECMS. Or one of the ecms could of been damage if the wrong battery terminal was hooked up. That I have seen. For the moment, it sounds like the car is in limp home, which is a safety feature by the manufactures that does not allow the car to be driven. Are there any lights on, check engine light, transmission light ect when the car is running?

SOURCE: gear shift lever moves but

The shift solenoid is stuck. The lever is moving, but its not making the gears to shift.First check the shift solenoid, if its stuck / worn out cracked.It has to be replaced.Also check the brake light switch. The brake light switch has alot to do with being able to shift from park since the sensor sends a signal telling the system that the brake pedal is being pressed and to allow you to shift from park. -- There is a small cable attached to the ignition switch that unblocks the gear shift. When this cable gets loose or broken it does not unblock the gear shift, causing it to get stuck.--- Checkout, this should help.Keep updated.Thanks.Helpmech.

SOURCE: transmission will shift, but car won't move.

there is a linkage inside the transmission that came off or lose so you might have to take it to a mechanic to get in there and repair so do not start car no more and you might have to have the car towed to a mechanic to look at it.

Why will it not go into 5 gear,It will go in 1 thru 4 but when you let out on clutch, truck won move, it goes dead. Truck will roll in neutral ........ Thanks for any Help


Are you sure that you are selecting FIFTH or are you selecting REVERSE? A "smart" car will kill the engine if you shift into REVERSE while moving forward, to prevent you from breaking the transmission.

How do i trouble shoot automatic transmission that shifts from park to reverse with the gear shift but the car will not move?


Sounds like the shift cable is off the transmission under the hood. Raise the hood and check to see if the cable is moving the linkage going into the transmission when the shift lever is moved in the car. Be sure to have park brake on.

Transmission don't shift in drive


If the transmission will not move the car forward in Drive, check fluid level, fluid condition, transmission filter, and linkage adjustment.
If the transmission will move the car forward in Drive but will not shift out of First Gear, the shift governor has failed.

My 99 Cavalier will shift into gear but will not release the wheels to roll forward or reverse even in Neutral.


FixYa is a site for helping people solve their problem. Your statement has so many factual non-sequiters, I connot understand the problem. So it will shift into gear but won't move even in neutral...??...Is your emergency hand-brake off?
Please restate your question and provide clarification.

My 1998 Honda civic ex won't move but the motor


Have you just replaced the clutch? Taken out the transaxle, and put it back in? Are you sure transmission was in good condition before this? If so, review your procedure carefully to be sure you got it all back right.
Watch the slave cylinder while someone depresses clutch. You should see the little plunger move slightly out and move the clutch lever back. The lever moves the release bearing inside bell housing into contact with the pressure plate. If slave cylinder doesn't move at all, try bleeding again. The plunger has to move when clutch is engaged.
I'm not sure what you mean by "will shift but won't go into gear". You mean it's actually going into a gear position and car won't move? Or it won't go into any gear, period. As if you had no clutch?

GEAR SHIFT STUCK IN PARK HAVE NO BRAKE LIGHTS


check the fuses as if the brake light fuse is blown it won`t allow the shifter to move out of park.it has a shift interlock system so the gear shift won`t accidentally be moved out of park by mistake.

96 pontiac grand prix gear shift moves but wont go into gear unless you move the car by hand then it clicks and will shift


Are you saying the automatic transmission will not shift into gear or the shifter won't move into the correct position?

It sounds like you have transmission problems but it could be that your linkage is loose or defective. Not enough information to give you a good starting place.

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.

Gear select lever is very loose. It move forward


There is a pin that goes through the shifter that hold it in place, along with a spring just inside where the end of the shifting lever is, that makes the lever "return" after you pull it back to shift. These springs can break and bind up. Take a look at both.
