Automatic transmission wont shift


98 sidekick.
in the USA we have the 4speed, A/T called. 03-72LE
do post what id does and not do. (full picture)
what wont shift?, the shifter or transmission or both?
won't go to park is clear. but;
1: are you on flat ground or on a hill parking to a curb.
vastly different rules there.
2: wont go into park so where does it go? everywhere buy park?
or flops around , like a loose Popsicle stick?

on flat ground the parking pawl in the tranny goes in easy.
on hills not so.. set the hand brake first, then park last.
on last, off first. (or trouble brews)
or it may not ever get to park. if rammed against curb or rock, or?

I can not shift out of park


there are 2 reasons.
1: park lock out is broken (brake switch activated)
2: or the tires are jammed in to a curb, going down hill,
(known as parking pawl lock up , inside the tranny)
(is car on flat ground?)
you never said what car, just jeep and they made jeeps from 1941 to now. so cant guess.
what jeep?
many jeeps, have a hidden super secret (in the operator guide under how to drive a A/T)
secret bypass. lever on the shift console.
so post year, and model of jeep and we can dig that up.
or go to alldata.com , log in and read, the park lock out page.

My Ford windstar 2003 would not start today. I turns over but wont start. I thought it was no gas so i put 2 gallons in it. It still wont start... please help


Okay. i have seen alot of fords that wont start but ran good and got parked and then wont start, the problems i have found is first the fuelpump goes bad,try this, have someone try to start the truck and at the same beat the bottom of the fuel tank with a rubber hammer, this shakes the pump and sometimes makes a bad pump start back up, if you get van going with the method then pump is bad and needs replacing. the other thing i have seen alot is that fords have a fuel shutdown switch, this shuts the fuelpump off when van is in a crash or i have seen this just by the van getting tapped in a parking lot, so check the switch, you will need to look in the manual to locate it and you will use your finger on the top to push the button in and you will feel it click a little and then try to start the van, here are a few locations they put the switch.i jsut remembered on this van the switch is in the rightside in the luggage compartment, open the rear tailgate and look to the right on the side you will see a decal that say fuel switch, thats the switch. hope this helps. good day

Key will not turn ,to start engine


Hello, this common situation arises when the steering lock mechanism binds, usually because the wheels are jammed against the curb. And to solve this problem try to follow this steps.

1. Make sure the transmission is in park(for cars with automatic transmission )

2. Set the parking brake to prevent the car from rolling farther against the curb.

3. Pull hard on the steering wheel while turning it in both directions, if this doesn't free the wheel move to step 4.

4. Release the parking brake and put the transmission in neutral, let up on the foot pedal just enough to rock the car slightly.

5. Turn the steering wheel again. The key should turn now.

Thanks

My son hit a curb hard and it died, turns over


Sounds like fuel cut off switch this sometimes happens if the car thinks you have crashed, dont know where it is on that car but read the user manual its just a switch you depress, try inside the boot under the spare or behind the centre consul. sometimes they are on the bulkhead at the veery top easy to see if its there small black box with a rubber on top does not look like a switch though, has 3 wires most times.

How to change the automatic transmission oil and filter. On 4 cylinder engine


Check fluid level every 12 months or 7500 miles, whichever comes first. Transmission fluid and filter should be changed every 100,000 miles. On THM 250C transmissions, intermediate (front) band requires adjustment every 60,000 miles, or as required.
1. With vehicle on level surface, apply parking brake and let engine run at curb idle. Move selector lever through all ranges, ending in "PARK". Remove dipstick and wipe clean, reinstall, then remove again and check fluid level mark on dipstick. Fluid level should check between "ADD 1 PT." and "FULL HOT" marks on dipstick.
RECOMMENDED FLUID Use only Dexron II or equivalent automatic transmission fluid.
CAUTION: If vehicle has been operated for an extended period of time at high speed, or in city traffic in hot weather, or if vehicle has been pulling a trailer, an accurate fluid level cannot be determined until fluid has cooled down (approximately 30 minutes after vehicle has been parked).
So let's get started... 1. With vehicle raised and drain pan placed under transmission, remove front and side transmission oil pan bolts. Loosen rear pan bolts approximately 4 turns each.
2. Carefully pry pan loose with screwdriver, allowing fluid to drain. Remove remaining bolts and oil pan with gasket. Remove screen/filter-to-valve body bolts and remove screen/filter with gasket.
3. Thoroughly clean pan and screen with solvent and dry with compressed air. Paper type filters should be replaced. Install new gasket or "O" rings, lubricated with clean oil, into screen/filter assembly.
4. Install screen/filter assembly to transmission. Use new pan gasket and install pan. Add proper amount of fluid to transmission through filler tube.
5. Start engine with shift selector lever in "PARK" position and with parking brake set. Check fluid level and add as required. CAUTION: DO NOT overfill.

Best of luck :)

I want to set up memory steating and paraelle parking mirror and everything else that I don't understand.


Hi,
Getting a fish eye mirror on the corner of your rear view mirror is the most important tool if you want to succeed in parallel parking. It allows u to tell where your wheels are and how close to the curb they are. By having that information, you will be able to tell when you need to straighten the car etc.

Secondly, backing in slowly but turning you steering wheel quickly is the key. A lot of ppl they tend to do the opposite, end up not entering the right angle and messing up the whole thing by not hitting the curb or having too much space between the curb.
1) Line up your car beside the other one, mirror to mirror.
2) Turn your wheels to the right ONE rotation; so from 12'oclock to 12'oclock.
3) Start backing into the spot and when your mirror matches the rear corner, turn it all the way to the left.
4) That should do it.
Tilt your right mirror a little bit down; set it where you can see clear view of the curb, roughly about 1/3 of your view should be able to focus on the curb, like how I set mine up.
Try not to line up your car too far away from the other car, but not too close.
Line up your rear bumper with the other car then start backing it up.
Practice more and drive your car more often.
Thank you for contacting Fixya.com
