Check your Neutral Safety Switch. It's located on top of the transmission on the drivers side. It is with the shift lever and can be seen from the engine compartment. Costs about $30 bucks at
auto parts stores. Worth a try for the money....

Heard a clunk while driving diesel ford excursion now when drive and reverse don't work....any ideas what problem is?


If it is a four wheel drive check your tail shaft or drive line by securing the vehicles front wheels jack up the rear tires and in park try to rotate the drive line if you can hear the transmission sound like it is going into gear the transfer case could be damaged! If not a four wheel drive pull the transmission dipstick and look to see if the fluid is dark red or metallic grayish color if so then you're clutch disks inside the tyranny have been worn out and it needs to be rebuilt!

I have a 1999 Pontiac Sunfire. Transmission is going out I think. When I put it into reverse it's sometimes goes into reverse and sometimes doesn't but I hear a loud knock. fluid is right and not...


putting it into a gear and hearing a knock indicates that the engine mounts or transmission mounts are broken
naturally if you put it in neutral it will not move as that what neutral is
perhaps the neutral position needs adjusting as it may still be in drive
have the fault codes read to determine any sensor/servo/solenoid faults before spending big money on a transmission

One backup light works and one doesn't on a 88 chevy 1500. New bulbs and bulb holder.


Connect a Test Light between the ground wire on the light socket (bulb holder) and somewhere on the body (a clean/bare metal surface) and then put the transmission in reverse.
If the Test Light lights up, you have a bad ground (broken wire, bad/corroded connection). If it doesn't then use a Multimeter to check for power on the Positive side of the Socket, No or Low voltage means a bad wire. Battery voltage is generally 12.45 (without the engine running) and 14.5 (with the engine running) So if you're getting less than that (by more than .3) you have a poor connection or damaged wire

Mitsubishi outlander 4x4 - 2005 light stays on when changing from 4x4 to 2 wheel drive


Try this quick fix solution.
Put vehicle in park or neutral, press the switch or turn the dial to 2H, put vehicle in reverse and reverse the vehicle aproximately 10m's or around 30ft.
Now drive vehicle forward, and this should unlock the 4wd mode.
If this doesn't work then your solenoid may need replacing.

Not saying this is your problem but I had a ram 1500 5.9l gas do the same thing would start and die as soon as I put it in drive but would run fine in reverse after doing all kinds of trans testing it ended up being the crank sensor still doesn't make sense to me but it would back fire and carry on in drive changed sensor and runs great and better fuel mileage

Car turns off when put in reverse or drive in the mornings,its an automatic,a golf III Volkswagen


This is a common problem with alot of other makes of cars, it has to do with the air fuel mixture when the car is cold these settings are changed under normal operating temperature by the ECM to make the engine run normally when it is not at optimal running temp. The cause of the engine to stall when in put into reverse is the reverse gear in any car is geared higher then forward first gear so the engine has to work harder to move the vehicle and with a cold engine if the engine is not 100% tuned (proper maintenance and tune up) it will stall when cold and specially when put into reverse. This is a very difficult problem to diagnose and only a highly skilled vdub mechanic working on your car can fix this. I could tell you 8 different things you could try but they may not work, its kinda trail and error. Hope this helps
