Take it off and check the spring by pulling the gear back with your fingers. If the spring is good, gear may be binding and need a shim.

I sit here on this site and help people with their issues all the time, and I do it for free. I've been in the mechanics trade for over 24 years, and I think I have a good idea of what I'm talking about. I don't know it all, and I even need assistance from time to time. The only thing I ask in return for my help, is a good rating from the people I help. Once you replace your solenoid, your issue will be resolved. Yes the fix is that simple. Remember to disconnect the negative cable from the battery before you replace it, so you don't ground anything out.

SOURCE: 91 chevy k 1500 won't shift into reverse. i think

Could be a vacuum issue or the modulator..

The modulator tells it when to shift and is controlled by vacuum presure..
Check all vacuum lines that rum from the tranie for cracks, spits etc..

it could also be a sensor..

Hope this helps !!
Please rate me good ;o)

How do I fix the engine in my 40th anniversary Mustang high-performance V-8 engine drove about 2 feet shut down both turnover possible problem


if the engine was running for a time before you selected a gear, you would have heard a serious noise before it stopped if anything went wrong ( top or bottom)
try removing the starter motor as it is possible that the pinion stayed engaged in the ring gear and the starter motor is jammed ( burnt out in the armature and bushes)
it it turns backwards on the bar it could be the starter or a problem in the gear box or torque converter

05 grand cherokee wont start .full power lights dont dim when cranking then it starts like nothings wrong. i tried jump starting it then i climbed under it and hit the starter and it started


If the starter motor spins at high speed, but doesn't turn the engine until you whack it, the starter gear is not engaging the flywheel. Probably the engagement fork or the starter gear is worn out or sticky, or the solenoid isn't pushing it far enough.

I was driving on the road when the starter engaged and burn out, I replaced the starter motor, starter relay, and ignition switch. turned the key and starter stays on. had to disconnect battery to stop it....


Hello, There are small wires that attach to the Starter Relay. These are the wires Mechanics call "tickler" wires. There should not be power going through the tickler wire unless the Ignition switch is turned to the START position.

Disconnect the small wire off of the Starter Relay. Leave it off and put your battery cable on the Battery. The Starter should not crank. The Ignition should be OFF.

Now we need to find out where the tickler wire is getting power from. Put a Multimeter or test light on the Tickler wire for POS and ground the other wire on the tester to a NEG ground. I suspect your problem is in the Interlock switch. The Interlock switch would be on the Clutch pedal lever under the dash for a standard shift.

If you had an Automatic transmission, the Interlock would be in the shift linkage or Brake pedal lever. Without changing from an Auto to a Standard trans people have trouble hitting the under dash Interlock switch with their shoes getting in and out of their cars. Even while driving you can hit the under-dash switches with your shoes.

So check under the dash for a broken or dislocated switch on the Clutch or Brake pedal levers. Then move the switches until the Test equipment shows the power is not going to the Tickler
wire . Once you do this you have to make the START position work on the Ignition switch. Leave the tickler hooked up to the test equipment until you get the wiring right. You may have to adjust the Ignition shift-rod in the steering column so that START means the correct thing only in the start position.

I hope my solution is very helpful in giving you ideas about fixing your car.

Sounds like the starter motor is bad.. i have had multiple vehicles where the starter stays engaged too long after start up.. and now that it doesnt start should be easy to diagnose...

1991 mustang 2.l starter staying engaged


what happens if you pull the shift lever into gear to cut off the neutral-park safety switch? This cuts pwer from the key to the starter solenoid. If that fixes it, replace the igniton switch.
