    If this is an automatic, sounds like the transmission is out, or fluid is low. If it is a manual, does it do this through all gears? or just one? Let me know. Chip

    it is an automatic and im hoping anything but that!

    Sounds like the transmission has an internal pressure loss or the trans controller isn't working. You need a good trans shop to check it out for you with a scanner.

    its been driving perfect and it all happened Friday out of nowhere, driving it to work it sounded like it was slipping so we added transmission fluid, and then on the way home it just stopped going instead we would press the gas and it would just rev up, after we uncranked it and let it sit for a minute we re cranked it

    Everything works before it breaks! You need to concentrate on what it is doing now, not what it did when it worked.
    Still sounds like what I said need a professional to check it out!!

Thank you but that sound i was referring to sounds like the motor rattling when i hit the gas a the stop sign then it goes away in park i can hit the gas a never hear it

It very well could be an internal engine noise. Make sure the oil level is full. You can put the vehicle in gear and while holding your foot on the brake, apply the gas. If it is internal, the noise will most likely be there. If it is a high mileage engine, it could be a rod/crank bearing starting to go and will eventually get louder and more frequent. Most auto repair shops will have a mechanic listen to the noise and advise free of charge

Sounds like maybe a motor mount may have broken,if you
open the hood and put the car in drive ,then neutral then reverse
the engine should only "rock" about an inch or so,if it really jumps
that is the problem.

You have a failed automatic transmission. You will need to remove and replace it or have it rebuilt.

My Sable will turn on fine but when i try shifting the gear they won't go in the shifter just glides along and the car remains idle. The day it started doing this it made a loud screeching noise and...

If the shifter moves but does not feel like it is trying to put car in gear the cable that goes from the shifter to the transmition could have broke or came loose. If that happened while driving the gears may have tried to shift when tension was released from the cable.

When i put my 2004 f150 fx4 truck into reverse and or drive there is a knocking and or shuttering sound, only while idling. When i start to give gas and move noise stops completely. everything else works...

Sounds like a bad U-Joint.

On this particular truck this is bad news.. unless someone has already replaced the factory ones once.. as the factory ones are pressed in you may need a special tool to get the old ones out.

A driveline shop may be able to do this for you.. and check with the Ford dealer for their repair procedure.. many folks have simply had to replace the entire drive shaft with new U joints.

They will be aware of the issue.. have them check service bulletins etc.

You can have someone check the location of the noise by keeping your foot on the brake.. placing the truck in gear.. and giveing it a little gas.. putting strain on the drive train.. shifting back and forth.. rolling a foot or so.. repeat.

The other things to check.. Motor mounts.. and transmission mounts..

Motor mount.. simply observe the engine with hood open.. and rev it up a little.

Best of luck!

2001 Pontiac Sunfire , you start the car and it starts fine no probs then put it in drive hit the gas & it won't move or it could drive okay but when you stop at a set of lights and then try to drive...

When was last time trans fluid & filter was changed? Sounds like trans filter is clogged, hopefully not badly. If it's been happening for awhile you might need trans replaced/rebuild.

Harsh grinding noise while in gear and car won't drive!

Had the exact same thing in my 93 and it was the CV Axles - they have a C clip that hold them in place - sometimes the C clip and fail; sometimes you simply have to replace the CV Axles - much cheaper then a tranny; a good suspension shop should be able to diagnos w/o it costing you an arm and a leg.

Possible Tranny problem...

I am sorry to have to tell you this but it sounds to me like your transmission is shot and will need a rebuild. If you can get it to a transmission shop they will tell you 100% what wrong with it. .
