There's a Transmission Range (TR) Sensor on top of the transaxle housing, attached by linkage and cable to the gear selector. There is also a metal shaft that runs down the stearing column that often breaks Check the linkage and cable to see if they are broken

Check to see if your linkage is working properly. If the linkage is all in tact, you could have a clogged filter/screen. To fix this, the tranny will need to be drained, the screen cleaned, and the fluid replaced. If this doesn't take care of the problem, a more serious condition exists and will likely need to be diagnosed by a transmission shop...could be several possible problems. Hint, usually, if your screen is clogged, the condition tends to improve once your engine has warmed up a bit.

    The PCM is not the problem if you are not moving at all. Ususally that module gets input for traction control or all wheel drive applications. Your problem could be any of a number of problems since you have indicated that the filter is not the issue. You may not be pumping fluid, you could have a valve body problem. Unfortunately, in either case, someone who is versed in tranny repair will have to do the proceedure. Sorry I don't have better news. I can't talk you thru a transmission rebuild. Good Luck.

Tranmission won't into shift into D stays in 2nd. gear speed odmetor don;t work

Hi...sounds like you need to have your 3-2 shift solenoid in the transmission replaced. Go to a local Auto Zone auto parts store near you and ask them to check you computer codes to see if this solenoid shows up. They do not charge for this service.

1999 taurus. 6 cyl OHV. Ran fine over the weekend. Parked car in driveway. Started this morning. Heard high(RPM) pitch winding sound coming from engine or tranmission. Noticed will not reverse or move into...

Check for vacuum lines going to transmission or any vacuum line under hood. It is possible an animal chewed on the lines or wires. We get a few reports of that at Fixya.

You might also look under the dash by the pedals for a vacuum leak. There are vacuum switches for parking brake release and the neutral start switch.

poping out of gear is caused by transmission internal wear, it can be the shift rails or other trans parts like bearings and engagement dogs on drums.

1999 ford taurus automatic wont go into any gear -engine is fine

Just a couple of things to check if you haven't compare the smell and apearance of the tranmission oil to so new, if it looks dark and smell burned you probably have a bad transmision, clutches or burned up. Does it whine or make any noise? a stopped up filter will do this. also is it full when warm on the dip tick runniing in park?
