How you drive your car could result in this. First ask your self the last time your car was serviced, and check to see if they checked your tranny fluids and stuff. Rodding your car around town could result in this, for example, putting an automatic trans in 2nd gear to get more boost. It is just hard on the transmission. Also, if you dont ever flush you transmisson fluids, or change your tranny oil. It could cause the trans to go out as well. In the end it sounds to me like you might need a new transmission. Your problem sounds like it has a 15% chance of being fixable just because you can reverse with it. You could just have a problem with your gears, i wouldnt know without looking at it.

My 1998 mercury sable won't come out of park but


That happen to me, and A guy helped me. The problem maybe down by the brake pedal, but above the brakes you may have pulled the wires a loose with your feet, or something and the wires need to be put back together maybe with black electrical tape. Definitley have to go down to the floor, and look under where the brake pedal is.

Hi Corey,

Maybe this is a dumb idea, but have you checked the oil level. If you have a leak and the level gets too low you will lose drive, usually around corners to begin with, or up or down lhills etc. Another way of clearing the computer is to switch off everything on the car and disconnect the positive terminal of your battery. With this disconnected, switch on the headlights for a few seconds. (nothing will happen but you will clear any residual electricity in the system, switch them off again and reconnect your battery. Make sure that nothing is on to cause a spike or you can damage your control unit.

I have the light up opn the dashboard illuminating the words C.DIFF LOCK what does it mean??


That means that the center differential is locked, making it 4-wheel drive, but restricting the tightness of turns that it can take. You should not operate it on dry pavement or above 45mpg in C DIFF LOCK mode or it could damage the car.
To turn it off, drive it to a level spot, stop, and press the button to turn it off. Drive a few feet forward and wait for the tone to go off. If necessary, put it in revers, drive backward a few feet and then go forward. That should turn the tone off and the light.

You can move the drivers seat back by turning on the power, getting in the seat and position your feet firmly on the fron flor with your back firmly against he seatback, and then engage the switch pushing back - while pushing like hell with your feet. You can actually hear the seat drive shaft turning while the seat moves back. The principle should be the same for moving forward, but pressure would have to be aplide to the back of the seat.

The transmission has failed, there is a class action law suit aginst Ford for transmission problems like yours, they go maybe 30-60,000 between overhauls, they are poorly designed, I lost count of how many I pulled out for repair at the Ford dealer I worked at for 20 years.

Clutch


believe it or not, the floormat on my 2000 Sunfire will sometimes slip forward and hold the clutch pedal down against the floor. It truly feels like a mechanical problem, but simply pull the floormat away and the pedal pops right back up!
