I had a similar thing happen to me in a Chevy Citation.It ended up being a bad piston.It was long ago and I don't remember if it had a hole in it or if it failed or whatever.The best way to verify it would be a compression test.It will tell if the combustion chamber is properly sealed.A piston bad enough to do what you are saying will be very noticeable and obvious.AAA approved shop is what I always recommend if you are in USA.Good luck,Greg

Will only pull in 4th gear and in 4 wheel drive


Automatic, or Standard? Last time transmission serviced? If auto, check fluid, if smells burnt, get serviced. However,it sounds like a problem in the linkage/s from the shift lever to the transmission and 4wheel controls.

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?
