Hi, you have a transmission problem with you vehicle which as a result of a broken linkage or cable which enables the car to shift out of the reverse position. It is because of the broken linkage/cable that you have a loose shift....

Wont go into drive or park when putting it into drive it goes in reverse a lot of play on the steering column with shift lever witch is an automatic


Your trouble lies in the steering column. Because the bearings or mounting bolts are so loose. Sometimes it might hit reverse other times it may find another selection. All depends on the position of the column. the shift rod in the column needs to be stable to hit the correct gear.

Tansmission all the sudden wont shift from 1st


  1. Check your Shift Cable at the Shifter, and at the Transmission. More than likely the Shift Cable came loose at the Shifter.

1995 crown vic gear problems/gear shift wont lock


most likely the shift tube bushings are bad- you may have also lost a few screws in the shift tube or they could just be loose. you have to pull the steernig column down to inspect/repair it.

1995 crown vic gear problems/gear shift wont lock


if the shifter is loose and sloppy feeling then the shift cable bracket has come loose under the dash at the steering wheel. remove the lower panel under the steering wheel so you can see under the dash then get flash light and look while jiggling the shifter. you should be able to see the cable and bracket. if the bracket is loose then tighten the bolts. note this bracket is at the steering colum.

Wont shift out of reverse,but the shifter moves up and down freel


your linkage on the transmission must be off. try having someone move the shifter while you watch the linkage arms under the car on the trans to make sure its all intact. it could be a loose or broken bolt on the trans causing it to not disengage from reverse this will cause it to not start.
