SOURCE: Everytime I put my car i park it goes into reverse.

It sounds like you have a damaged shifter cable.It is an adjustable cable but if it is that far out of adjustment then it is probably damaged. Replace it.

SOURCE: my cougers tranmission has park and it has drive.

The problems appear to be unrelated. The shift linkage requires adjustment to align the shift lever to the correct gear.

I have all gears but reverse and when in park and neutral and gas pedal is pressed the car moves forward, why?


well could be two things. either your transmission has crapped out on you. or you have a shifter linkage issue. which means when the car is in park its not really in park. try this. move the shifter and see if the car moves in a different gear then what it says it is in . so if it moves in neutral it could be drive and reverse is neutral. if it does not reverse at all. time for a new trany is my guess.

Gear shifter is in Park, but dash reads it's in Reverse. Car won't turn over because it is in Reverse now.


You have to locate where the park ignition switch is located. Some are on the transmission and some are in the column under the dash. It probably got moved.

When I try to shift from park to drive it gets tight at reverse as if doesn't want go but once out of reverse it shift normally until shifting back to park when I have to go threw reverse then it tightens...


Is it only when you go from park to reverse? Or is it just as bad going from neutral to reverse? I've noticed on mine that it's often tight if I park on even a slight slope. If it only happens when going from park to reverse, try this. Hold your foot on the brake, and put the car in drive. Keeping constant pressure on the brake, go back to park, then back into drive. Did you feel the stiffness when you had your foot on the brake?
