Trans acts like it's in nutreul and the speedometer will to zero


Why Is My Automatic Transmission Slipping? If you have an automatic transmission and it "slips" while you are driving it-that is, the car engine revs without the power going to the wheels-the most common cause (though not the only possible cause) is low transmission fluid. If the slipping is caused by low fluid, it will get worse as the transmission gets hotter.
Why Is My Manual Transmission Slipping? A standard ("manual") transmission uses fluid too, but leaks aren't a common issue; a standard transmission could lose all its fluid and never slip at all, though eventually it would lock up while driving down the road. If you have a standard transmission, and it's slipping-the engine revs but it doesn't transmit power to the wheels-the problem is usually in the clutch.
Further down in the article I discuss how to diagnose this problem.

The transmission shifts fine in drive, but when going through the geers, Park works, Reverse acts like park, Neutral acts like drive, Drive works, 2nd and 1st work. Any Ideas?


Hi Ken:
Sounds as if the linkage is out of adjustment. Did something specific happen to cause this to start to occur? If you look at the linkage, there will be some point where you can shorten or lengthen the rod that attaches to a lever on the transmission. One way will make it better, the other will make it worse.

My 2000 ford contour drives alittle way then then stops like in neutral


From your description, I will assume you have an automatic transmission. I will assume also that you have checked the fluid level on the transmission dipstick, and it's okay.
One possibility is that the transmission fluid cooler (built into the car's radiator) is clogged, causing the transmission fluid to overheat and the transmission itself to malfunction. This usually will also cause hard shifting when hot. If this is the case, the radiator would probably need to be replaced, the transmission completely drained and flushed,and filled with new fluid.
Anything else points to an internal fault in the transmission itself. This calls for a good transmission shop to remove, repair, and reinstall the trans.

Where is the automatic transmission dipstick located on a 89 ford escort and why does the gear shift act in its starting, whether or not? ( moving it)


Dip stick comes out of dip stick tube coming from transmission (side of trans) Look real hard on the side of the transmission behind the engine you will see it.

The second issue sounds like a neutral safety switch.

Automatic transmission will only shift manually


This is a sensor issue. It can be from a couple of different sensors. The VSS, or vehicle speed sensor is the main one. Loose or faulty wiring can cause it, a faulty PCM can cause it, or the Throttle Position Sensor can cause it.
