I have a 1990 Ford Taurus 3.0 V6 station wagon that has trouble starting.


I am not sure of the auto transmission sensor, but you are absolutely right, there is shift selector that tells the on board computer the car is in neutral or park. any other position and it will not start. I would say it would be located on the transmission where the shift cable hooks to the transmission. I can't remember weather it is on the outside or in the trans itself. It would make sense for it to be on the outside.
I hope I was of some help.

Can't get shifter into park


sounds like the parking pawl in the transmission or the manual shift valve is sticking or the manual linkage in the trans is bent. youll have to have a technician drop the trans pan and observe these parts with an assistant shifting the lever in the car back and forth. If the PRNDL light for park is not lit, then the vehicle is not completely in park. You can start and vehicle with the lever in NEUTRAL to get you anywhere.

It started with the loss of my cruise control. I had no problems with shifting out of park. Came home put the car in to reverse and shut it down. 30 minutes later, started the car, I can move the lever...


Sounds like the cable from the shift lever to the transmission has broken or come loose. You may have to get it towed in to a dealer to have it fixed.

1995 toyota avalon will not start and gear shift is frozen -just had car serviced yesterday. battery seems good, dash lights come on and there is just a loud clicking sound. Car will not start, gear...


Sounds like a battery problem. The clicking sound is usually the starter solenoid trying to engage the starter but not enough voltage or amps. There has to be enough power or you will not be able to move shifter assuming you pushed the brake pedal down while trying to shift out of park. And, it hasn't been noted whether it is a manual or auto trans.

Gear shift will not move out of park. for 95 ford econoline


try having someone rock it back and forth when you try, there is a shift lock in the transmission, its not tooo tooo expensive to fix. if your van starts this way then that is your problem. if not- let me know I will research it and find your answer.

Subaru won't start


You've got to assume that the trans oil change is unrelated. With the key in the run position see if the wipers work, if not the battery is dead. Otherwise, try rocking the car back and forth while in park and then hope for a miracle. If all fails, get out the volt meter and start measuring voltages at the starter and the power pack (coil).
