Hi! Does it register any fault code? There are few things to look at. Transmission solenoid may be faulty that may cause unusual performance to the tranny. Torque converter may be worn and may require replacement. But before going to technical fixes I strongly suggest that you replace the transmission fluid and filter. The fluid may be burnt which can cause the transmission to fail. HOpe this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Parking Brake not working on 1998 Town Car


check to see if you have any brake pads left inside the drum, this can have happened because someone drove with the parking brake on, if everything is ok, then go ahead and adjust the wire
to the parking brake, you should start feeling it about 3 click. and in full half way down or so

97 buick park avenue low beams off at nite


sounds familiar, I had that problem one night, started my car and the lights that are automatic didn`t come on. Well I started to check things I realized my emergency brake pedal wasn`t coming all the way up so I put the emergency brake on and then releast it and helped it come up with my foot and lo and behold my lights came on. sort of a safety feature to prevent you from putting your car in gear and going.

I have a 2005 chevy cavalier i was pulling up to get gas when all of a sudden my gear would not shift to park so i put hte emergency brake on and killed the car now it wont start what could be going on


The neutral safety switch will not let you crank the engine in anything but park and neutral. If something happens to the shift cable the trans may still be in drive.

I have a 1998 cavalier. It has been sitting for a couple of months and not drove much. I have recently tryed to start it and i'm having trouble. it will start then imedetly dies then it just crank


Probably the best thing you can try is to replace the fuel filter and do a fuel sample at the same time. Use a glass jar to capture a little fuel and let it sit for a day to see if it separates. Put a lid on the jar to prevent evaporation.

Depending on your results, you can determine if the fuel is the problem.

1993 Cavalier ABS light and parking brake light both stay on


The fuse is probably blown or the sensor at the front wheel got hit by a hard ball of snow, the ABS sensor is at the front wheels and you have to get under the car to get a look at it.

No power, jerking bad 1998 cavalier


Possible dirty fuel filter. I'd start there first, as it's the cheapest route, and quite possibly replacing the filter will solve your problem.

Scraping noise in rear of 2000 Toyota Rav4 AWD


just wanted to stop to offer some tips. I just put in new brakes on last night. I too had the same problem. The brakes were fine, but I replaced them anyway. The drum seem fine, and my emergency cable was a bit loose too. What you can try is hiting the ebrake while going in reverse or in drive. It may help. If not, adjust the ebrake cable will be needed, it not too hard to do. It should be by the rear tires towards the center.
