The noise is the tooth engaging your parking dog in the trans. think of a big gear with square teeth and a plunger that fits into the valley of the gear. not always does the plunger hit the valley so when you roll a little it comes off the high point and settles where it belongs

Check the linkage at the bottom of the shift lever shaft that goes to the transmission--Is there play in either of the connection points? Have someone shift the lever in and out of 'park' (set the hand brake and engine off) while you observe the lower components. It may just be a slight length adjustment of the linkage to fully engage it in park.

Car wont start and rolls backwards even though it apears to be in park


Sounds like the shifter is stuck in reverse or drive since it will roll.
I would set the parking brake and have someone watch the shift lever on the transmission to see if it and the shifter inside is still connected.

My 2004 pontiac montana wont start, need help ASAP!


no the transmission shift cable is streached and needs to be adjusted. you should be able to shift the van to neutral and start it in that gear. just watch when you park because it will roll away. use parking brake. if it doent start in neutral then your cable may be snaped and not noving the gear selector on trans at all

03 cts i put it in park on a hill and let go of the brake then it started to click and slowly roll back


Your trying to ruin the transaxle.

Read your owners manual,no vehicle is designed to hold on a hill,with just the trans parking pawl

You never had it in park ,in the first place,what you heard was the parking pawl, trying to engage the teeth on the parking gear

Your suppost to put the trans in park,apply the parking brake,then let off the foot brake,on all vehicles.

Toyota corrola Ae100 automatic gearbox not engaging any gears. terrible noise coming beneath the car. whie in the park position the vehicle still moving. Grinding noise when gear lever is put back into...


Have the transmission repaired or replaced. The shift arm that shifts the gears is probably broken. That is why you cannot switch gears and is making that noise.

When I start the car, I can't put the car in shift mode. Unless I am on a slight incline and put my emergency brake on to roll. What is the problem and how much will it cost me to fix?


Can't shift out of park because I've parked on a slight hill and my car has backed up slightly jaming the parking pawl in the automatic transmission after I have shifted into park but before I have set the parking brake. This is a complaint that Ford owners have had for years. Try this proceedure to see if this solves you problem and best of all it's Free. 1st when you park develop the habit of; while still having the foot brake down apply the park brake firmly first and then shift into park and then release the foot brake. Remember it is important to apply park brake with enough force to prevent the vehicle from rolling. What happens is in the rear of an automatic transmission there is a coarse gear that has a lever that engages this larger gear and when you shift into park range this lever goes into one of the spaces in the larger gear and stops the car from rolling. If the car starts to roll it can Jam the lever against the gear and make it difficult to shift out of park. By using the procedure I've outlined it prevents the lever OR Pawl from being jambed into the larger park gear. Try to make this a habit and you shouldn't have anymore problems.

I CAN NOT SHIFT THR TRANS INTO NUTRAL SO I CAN TOW IT BEHIND MY MOTOR HOME. IT WILL SHIFT INTO 2H, 4H, 4L


Shifting to NEUTRAL
To shift the transfer case to NEUTRAL, first make sure
the vehicle is parked so that it will not roll:
1. Set the parking brake.
2. Start the vehicle.
3. Connect the vehicle to the towing vehicle.
4. Put the transmission in NEUTRAL (N) or have
the clutch pedal pressed for vehicles with
manual transmission.
5. Shift the transfer case to 2HI.
6. Simultaneously press and hold the 2HI and
4LO buttons for 10 seconds. The red NEUTRAL
light will come on when the transfer case shift to
NEUTRAL is complete.
7. Shift the transmission to REVERSE (R) for one
second, then shift the transmission to DRIVE (D)
for one second or FIRST (1) for vehicles with
manual transmission.
8. Turn the ignition to OFF.
9. Place the transmission shift lever in PARK (P) or
FIRST (1) for vehicles with manual transmission.
10. Release the parking brake prior to towing.

************************

Shifting Out of NEUTRAL
To shift out of NEUTRAL:
1. Set the parking brake and apply the regular
brake pedal.
2. Start the vehicle with the transmission in PARK (P)
or FIRST (1) for vehicles with manual transmission.
3. Press the button for the desired transfer case position
(2HI, 4HI, AUTO 4WD or 4LO).
4. Put the transmission in NEUTRAL (N) or press the
clutch pedal for vehicles with manual transmission.
5. Shift the transmission lever to the desired position.
After the transfer case has shifted out of NEUTRAL,
the red light will go out.
6. A re-engagement sound is normal when shifting out
of NEUTRAL.

I have a 1999 e-450 that sometimes rolls when its in park.


Your linkage is out of adjustment or worn bushing. There is a series of links and rods that accomplish the changing of gears,(especially with a column shifter). The links sometimes have plastic or nylon bushings. They become worn or broken and allow for maladjustment--not going into gear or park fully.
If it isn't going into park and the linkage is correctly adjusted with no damage, you should suspect internal transmission damage.

If you don't feel comfortable about this repair, a respected shop is your best bet.
