The transmission is probably getting old and needs to be rebuilt, but most people live with the problem because of the cost is prohibitive.

Why will my 1995 lexus ls400 not shift into park or reverse from drive/neutral?

Could be computer related, many times its the transmission gunked up with sludge. Transmedic is a fix that takes a few days to actually work but only last a few months if thats the issue. Most honest shops will take out the trans and open and clean it out, Many just want to rebuild it, needed or not to make money. You can also check the linkage that goes from the shift to the transmission. many times it can loosen, especially if you like to shift manually or hard.
Hope this helps, Have a great day and God Bless :O)

Shift solenoid wont shift

i had the same problem, i had a completely blown transmission (minus reverse) and $1000, time for shipping and 15+ hours of my time later, i had a used transmission installed and it runs again. sounds like your transmission may be shot but take it to aamco first to be sure. they may tell you it has one simple problem and can be repaired. mine, not so much it was gonna cost $2700 to repair. hope your story has a far different ending!!

You are actually causing less wear & tear if you put your foot on the brake & shift into neutral then shift into 4 wheel & out of 4 wheel drive.

I have an automatic Isuzu trooper 1996, it shifts wrong

You need to get the transmission serviced. Either the Filter is clogged or something has worn out and needs to be repaired.
