Shift lever blocked in position D ?


Could be the park neutral switch. It senses that foot is on the brake pedal so shifter can be moved.

Hi, My mustand gear shifter stopped working on a moments notice. It's now stuck in reverse and the shifter seems to just glide over the gears and never engages. Please advise


this is a broken shift cable, it's an easy repair to do. go to the ford dealer parts department and they can get you the part and help you with information on how to install it.by the way the cable is not under the car its part of the shifter assembly.

I HAVE A 96 MUSTANG GT WITH A 5 SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION AND IT MADE A LOUD POPPING SOUND WHILE SHIFTING FROM FIRST TO SECOND GEAR AND NOW SEEMS TO BE IN FIRST GEAR NO MATTER WHERE YOU POSITION THE...


youve probabally broken a shift fork and you will need to take the transmission in to be refurbished. If your shifter moves freely it could be that your shifter itself has broken which is a much cheaper fix. If you can dissassembel the shifter assembly and check for any serious brakes thats the simple fix. Otherwise take it in and get it looked over as a transmission overhaul is not something that you can do yourself without serious training, patience and organization...

I have a 86 mustang that was stuck in first adrives just in first now all gears work. it now just pops out of first now


Him
Sorry to hear your having problems.
The most likely problem is you have a bent shift fork inside the transmission.
You can either go used or try to rebuild it.
You can try this as well.
1 - either block the wheels from turning or put the emergency brake on.
2- put the standard shift in neutral
3 pull the plastic ring around the shifter up.
3 remove the cover
4 - remove the four bolts holding the inner cover off
5 -remove the shifter bolts [4]
6-put an old towel down to cover the seats and other areas -
7 pull GENTLY and CAREFULLY until the entire shift mechanism comes lose.
8 - check and have someone else check to see that the shifter is straight and not bent. The bottom part of the shifter with the knob looking unit on it - should be straight down from the shifter that you use to shift the gears. If this is bent - I would get an after market shifter - or you can replace with a factory shifter.

Reverse the above directions to complete the job.
If nothing is bent -then you must rebuild or replace the transmission.

Hope this helps you get this repaired.

If I helped please rate me high.
Thanks

My shifter on my 86 ford mustang is stuck in firdt gear what coul


Hi, if your car is manual gear box and its stuck in first then it could be one of a couple of things if the gear stick is solid and wont move out of the first gear possition then the chances are that it could be either the clutch has gone or the thrust bearing on the clutch has failed these parts both come in a clutch kit.

you could try rocking the car backwards and forwards whilst moving the gearstick to see if it frees up out of first gear.

Can you start the car up with the clutch pressed down and drive the car in first gear as normal if this is the case and you can drive the car in first gear and the clutch seems fine then it could be a more serious fault inside the gearbox even broken selector in the box.

let me know the outcome then i can assist you further ok
