My vehicle was moving then later indicate neutral and stop I try to engage the gear but the vehicle won't move why

If the gear indicator changed to neutral without you doing anything, I would say the transmission selector switch has failed. The switch tells the computer what position the shifter is in.

The vehicle was driving, in second gear. suddenly car went into neutral. will not engage into gear now. shifter moves but does not change gears. car is stuck in neutral now

Most likely the bands in the tranny ire whorn out Small posability you can change the flouid and filter and might help, This would cost around $75 but better the replacing tranny, Best of luck to you, hope it works out for you.

Hi i have a 1999 f150 with the 4.6 triton engine ,its strated to stall when im stopped in drive and today the gear lever has gone potty , it wont go to park and when its shoing newtral its in revers and...

It sounds like the linkage under the truck has slipped. You will need to people for this fix. One person sits in the truck with the key on and to move the shifter. The other person is under the truck loosening the nut on the linkage rod coming from the column to the linkage on the tranny. Loosen the nut on the linkage and move the lever on the tranny all the way forward should be park, have the person in the truck move the shifter to the park position and tighten the nut back and insure it stays in place by shifting it back and forth while the person under truck watches to see if it moves correctly. As far as the stall it is possibly a fuel filter.
