Can,t move the gear shift from drive to park it only goes from drive to netraul


Sounds like the linkage may be broken and it wont allow you to shift into
park. You might try pressing on the brake before putting it into Park,
sometimes the engine pushes the van forward and it wont go into Park.

My Ford windstar 2003 would not start today. I turns over but wont start. I thought it was no gas so i put 2 gallons in it. It still wont start... please help


Okay. i have seen alot of fords that wont start but ran good and got parked and then wont start, the problems i have found is first the fuelpump goes bad,try this, have someone try to start the truck and at the same beat the bottom of the fuel tank with a rubber hammer, this shakes the pump and sometimes makes a bad pump start back up, if you get van going with the method then pump is bad and needs replacing. the other thing i have seen alot is that fords have a fuel shutdown switch, this shuts the fuelpump off when van is in a crash or i have seen this just by the van getting tapped in a parking lot, so check the switch, you will need to look in the manual to locate it and you will use your finger on the top to push the button in and you will feel it click a little and then try to start the van, here are a few locations they put the switch.i jsut remembered on this van the switch is in the rightside in the luggage compartment, open the rear tailgate and look to the right on the side you will see a decal that say fuel switch, thats the switch. hope this helps. good day

How to get engine rolled forward in a pontiac 2000 van to change plugs


Hi, I have one too, changing plugs is a pain. for the back three plugs I had to put the van on car ramps and reach up from the bottom. There is not much room, but can be done without having to role motor. Good Luck

My 1994 nissan maxima has no problems.but all of a sudden i parked it and when i tried to put it in gear,it wont move.it stays in park.and it wont move


Check your linkage under the car on drivers side. Right next to Transmisson the linkage that goes to your shifter should connect to the linkage coming out of the transmisson. If not, you have a broken linkage.

I heard a loud pop, then the vehicle wont move in any gear.It then grinds when I try to put it in park.


It sounds like you broke a Constant Velocity joint (CV Joint). The pop was probably the joint breaking. When you put it in gear it's just spinning. Think of one of your hands as the transmission. Hold a pencil that would be the CV Joint(s) and axle, and use the other hand to hold the other end of the pencil. That's the front hub (part that makes the wheel turn). So you have ...hand, pencil...hand = trans, axle... wheel. If you hold the pencil firmly with both hands, and spin the pencil with one, both hands still move.

If the pencil breaks...the one not spinning does nothing.

So...The transmission is trying to make the van go, but the cv joint is broken, so the wheels aren't spinning. When you put the van in park, the transmission doesn't know the vans not moving. Therefore it's making the same noise as if you put the van in park while driving. If you must start the van and put it in gear to see if the driver's or passenger's axle is just spinning. Shut the van off, wait a minute for the axle shaft to stop spinning, and then put it in park.

2002 Windstar wont go into gear


These are common for the pump shaft splines stripping in the torque converter. The transmission will need to be removed to fix it. Before you condemn the trans, does the speedo move and the van doesn't or do you hear any grinding when you put it back into park? Or can you push the van in park (Broken CV shafts)?

Van trouble


The gear shift selector is probably "locked you out" because of the fact that there is a Park-Safety solonoid that keeps the car in park unless your foot is depressing the brake so that the gear-shifter cannot come out of park unless a person is trying to move it.

Why that isn't working is probably because the battery on your vehicle is completely 100% dead. If a battery is completely 100% dead, a jump-start is usually not enough to get a vehicle to start because the battery's electrolyte level is so low that it can't actually hold a charge. I recommend you replace the battery at your first convenience, as it will probably alleviate both problems.
