Likely the shift cable has broken or become disconnected. Move the shifter and watch the control arm on the transmission to see if it moves. If not, check/ replace the cable.

I have all gears but reverse and when in park and neutral and gas pedal is pressed the car moves forward, why?


well could be two things. either your transmission has crapped out on you. or you have a shifter linkage issue. which means when the car is in park its not really in park. try this. move the shifter and see if the car moves in a different gear then what it says it is in . so if it moves in neutral it could be drive and reverse is neutral. if it does not reverse at all. time for a new trany is my guess.

Automatic not changing gears


check the shifter mechanism for binding up and not moving freely into positions. Not starting in park but in neutral indicates something is out of alignment with the shifter. May just need cleaning and a bit of oil/grease to fix.

Have the car towed to a local transmission repair shop, they can give you a preliminary diagnosis in most case at no charge

Car starts up fine, but will not change gear, won't reverse, neutral, drive, etc. what could be the problem, do i really need a whole new transmission maybe


Have you check the ****** fluid level? Even if it's run out it may still be fixable if you add fluid. Although likely cause is a bad ****** unfortunately. It's a huge pain to replace too. :(

Something else to try as well (assuming you mean automatic ******) is check if it will roll freely in Neutral but not roll freely in Park? It could be that the shift cable connecting your shifter to the ****** is broken or disconnected.

The gear shifter handle moves but the van stays in park . The gear shifter handle on the steering colum, will move up and down very loosely. The indicater for park, reverse, neutral, and drive will move to...


there is a cable attached to your transmission that is actuated with that lever. the cable has come disconected or has broken. open your hood and look for cable on top of your transmission to see if it is worn.broken ect. helps to have somebody move lever while u locate it if you are not sure what you are looking for.

Van won't lock into reverse or park all the time.


it is either the shifter or the cable, I would go with a broken part in the shifter linkage. Detrim the steering column and see what shows up, very easy just 4 screw I think.

Car stops moving in reverse gear


Sounds like the car is just slipping out of gear. Keep your hand on the shifter when you back up next time. See if you can feel the shifter move when the car comes out of gear. If the shifter moves up when it happens keep pressure on the shifter holding it back like you dont want it to move forward. And of course if the shifter moves back when it comes out of gear, put forward pressure on the shifter so it doesnt slip out. This might work for now but but i know i wouldnt want to spen 700 for that ****. Let me know how it goes.
