MY DID THE SAME THING JUST YESTERDAY, I STARTED IT WITH EASE BUT COULDN'T MOVE OUT OF PARK AT ALL.
-I WAS TOLD THAT YOU HAVE TO POP OUT THE SILVER CENTER MOLDING AROUND YOUR GEAR SHIFT.
-LOOK TO THE LEFT NEAR THE (D) AND (N), THERE'S A SMALL PINK PLASTIC THING THAT ---HAD---A SPRING ON IT, THE SPRING POPPED OFF. SO A QUICK REPAIR TO GET IT TO A SHOP WOULD BE TO GET A SCREW FLAT HEAD DRIVER, FIT IT IN THE GROVE A THE PINK THING AND SHIFT IT TO THE REAR/LEFT. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO DRIVE IT

IT DID IT AND IT WORKED

Your linkage may be jammed somewhere ...

You are putting your foot on the brake before you move the lever ... right??? Many modern cars have a lock on the shift lever that unlocks when you put your foot on the brake. I dont know if this is your trouble. If it is not your trouble ... please remember to not kill the messenger ... dont bite those who are trying to help you.

Thank you for your interest in FixYa.com

My pontiac g6 was very low on transmission fluid, how much do i need to put in. The auto store guy said half a qt. Put half qt. In and transmission doesn't even shift out of first gear.


Step 1: Start your car and warm up the engine.

Step 2: With the engine running remove the transmission fluid dip stick, wipe off the fluid and reinsert.

Step 3: Remove the dip stick and check the fluid level.

Step 4: If it is low stop the engine and add about a cup of fluid using a funnel into the dip stick tube.

Step 5: Restart the engine and recheck the fluid level.

Continue filling and checking until the dip stick shows it is full on the stick. Do not guess as too much fluid can be as harmful as too little.

Car starts and when you give it gas it wont go any where and the rpm hand goes up and still dont move


This sounds like transmission problems, some of these models do not have a transmission dip stick to check the transmission fluid level.
The first step is to see if this car has a dip stick to check the transmission fluid level. Low fluid will cause this problem also or if there is a leak and fluid leaks low after time until it gets to low and transmission wont move.
if this model does not have a dip stick for the transmission then you will need to take it to a tranny or repair shop and have them check it.

If you have a dip stick and the fluid is full then you may have internal transmission problems and again will need a shop to check it out. Make sure if the fluid is low and you are adding you will need to make sure you are using the correct fluid or damage will occur , the type is written on the stick, look closely and you will see the writing ,

Car engine starts but does not move


Something you can try, but you would have to be very lucky for this to be the problem.

If you haven't already, check your transmission fluid level. If the fluid level gets low enough in the transmission it can cause the car to not move at all.

Please do the following, unless you already have;

Start the engine and let it run 6 to 8 minutes to allow the engine and fluids to reach normal operating temperature.

Remove the dip stick to the transmission fluid, wipe it off, put it back in, and then take it out again to read it. If there is no fluid on the dip stick, add 3/4 of a quart of transmission fluid in through the pipe that you took the dip stick out of. Put it in gear and see if there's any diference, if not, add the other 1/4 of the bottle and then try to put it in gear again and see if it will move.

Continue adding 1/4 of a quart at a time until the car starts to move, or the transmission level showing on the dip stick is where it should be.

Best of luck!

When my car starts to move forward and hits first gear it switches quite hard, a noticeable jolt happens. also the engine light is on and i took it to a dealer and they said i have to replace a kock sensor


A snatching shift indicates low fluid. Put the car in park and with the engine running check the level on the transmission dip stick. If low you can top it up by adding extra fluid via the dip stick tube: add about a pint at a time and check the level between top ups. The knock sensor might have been triggered by heavy shifts so I would reset the error code and run the car with a full transmission and see if the code comes back. If the knock sensor if triggered the ECM on most modern cars may put the transmission into a limp home 'safe' mode. With luck in 1997 such things were yet to be enacted. If so just make sure the timing and all functions are OK on the engine.

2000 S80 Tranny wont shift to overdrive, and after stopping at a stop sign it wont shift to first, stays in 2 or 3, Turn key off and start the car, tranny shifts starts out in first, still no overdrive....


Greetings Idpeters:
Please check your transmission fluid level. After the engine is warm pull the transmission stick and make sure the level is close to the full line and that the transmission fluid is red and not brown. You may have to change your transmission fluid and screen. If you plan to do it yourself I can advise you on how to change it step by step or you can take it to a transmission shop or dealership for a transmission tune-up. Good Luck

THE CAR STARTS, THE SHIFT LEAVER MOVES TO ALL THE POSITIONS BUT THE REANSMISSION NEVER ENGAGES AND THE CAR WONT MOVE.


how easily dies the shifter move? if it feels as if there is no pressure, then possibly the cable is broken. have you had the fluid level checked? maybe there is a leak you are unaware of.
