    take it via tow truck to a reputable transmission shop it is likely done with and very expensive to fix could be something simple but these transmissions are known to fail more than others. if it is failed you will have to weigh the cost of repair versus the value of the vehicle. this is a tough call. you must know whats wrong with it before you can move on this so tow it to a shop a transmission shop with good reviews, not the dealer they will charge you too much money for sure. good luck.

Your transmission is not performing properly. You need to have your transmission looked at by a professional. Your transmission can be further damaged if you drive on it futher. I recommend you get it fixed sooner rather than later. Hope this helps! Please rate 4 thumbs up!

My 2000 ford windstar was working fine, then I stopped to put gas and when I tried to switch from park to drive it did not go in gear. no reverse, no drive, what would it be??


Hi hope I can help.
This is a very common way that a torque converter fails.
The transmission will need to be removed and a new torque converter installed.
Hope this helps

The wheels turning opposite is normal. It's how the differential works. You need to get the transmission checked out by a qualified tranny person.

sounds like your issue is either involving the torque convertor, or more than likely the transmission is at fault. your gear shift lever is actually mechanically linked to the trans, the gear position sensor would not cause the van not to move, sorry for the bad news!
