I would change the fluid in the tranny because if the fluids low or dirty it will shift hard or not go into gear. So I would do that.

I had trouble with what seemed like a transmission on my ford van. Was told by a master mechanic to disconnect the NEGATIVE battery cable for 5 minutes to reset computer. I did this, it worked & never had another problem with it. Maybe it will work in your situation. Doesn't cost anything to try!:)

Truck will not go in park. Truck parks in reverse, reverses in neutral, goes to neutral in drive and drives in 2nd gear. How do I get it back to right configuration.


I'm assuming the shifter is on the column. The linkage would be between the column and the transmission in the engine compartment.
You should be able to disconnect the linkage at the transmission, put the transmission in park, then check the linkage to see if it is bent or stretched with the shifter in park.

this sounds like transmission failure as limp mode would allow reverse and 2nd gear only to allow you to drive to a shop to have it checked out.

My car dies and jerks when placed into drive but is smooth as silk when in reverse how do i fix and wat is it


First on my suspect list is a transmission problem. Check the level of your transmission fluid, and if low, add to the MAX line. If the problem persists, report to your nearest transmission shop.
Also, experiment with gears other than Drive - see if car has same problem in 1st gear, and 2nd
gear (if your car has it). Also try starting car in Neutral - a properly functioning transmission will let you start your car in only 2 gears: PARK and NEUTRAL, thanks to the neutral safety switch.

Car need to be taken to a transmission service shop.
If you keep driving it the way it is,,you could break the gear altogether,this will add to your repair bill.
Right now,,it could be just an adjustment.
