Your trying to ruin the transaxle.

Read your owners manual,no vehicle is designed to hold on a hill,with just the trans parking pawl

You never had it in park ,in the first place,what you heard was the parking pawl, trying to engage the teeth on the parking gear

Your suppost to put the trans in park,apply the parking brake,then let off the foot brake,on all vehicles.

Starter sounds weak and sputter-y when trying to start car on a slight hill. but not when it's parked flat.


Set the parking brake first, then put it in park, when you kill it. That way the parking brake is holding it, not the tranny. See if it makes any difference? Also, check proper voltage and ground for the starter motor.

it sounds like your shift lever is loose and now your Park/Neutral safety switch is out of position. Try, with foot on brake, holding key in start while you move shift lever slowly from park to low.

When I start the car, I can't put the car in shift mode. Unless I am on a slight incline and put my emergency brake on to roll. What is the problem and how much will it cost me to fix?


Can't shift out of park because I've parked on a slight hill and my car has backed up slightly jaming the parking pawl in the automatic transmission after I have shifted into park but before I have set the parking brake. This is a complaint that Ford owners have had for years. Try this proceedure to see if this solves you problem and best of all it's Free. 1st when you park develop the habit of; while still having the foot brake down apply the park brake firmly first and then shift into park and then release the foot brake. Remember it is important to apply park brake with enough force to prevent the vehicle from rolling. What happens is in the rear of an automatic transmission there is a coarse gear that has a lever that engages this larger gear and when you shift into park range this lever goes into one of the spaces in the larger gear and stops the car from rolling. If the car starts to roll it can Jam the lever against the gear and make it difficult to shift out of park. By using the procedure I've outlined it prevents the lever OR Pawl from being jambed into the larger park gear. Try to make this a habit and you shouldn't have anymore problems.

When i take it from park into reverse it pops really loud


Do you park on a hill, and not use the parking brake?? When folks don't use the parking brake, the car rolls a bit after you put it in park, and take your foot off the brake. Therefore putting pressure on the transmission to keep the car in place. Then when you start up, and throw it in reverse, it will pop, clunk, make an awful sound.

I HAVE A 2001 AZTEK AND WHEN ON AN UPHILL INCLINE STOPPED, YOU MUST KEEP FOOT ON BRAKE OR VEHICLE WILL ROLL BACKWARDS


This is normal, depending on the depth of the hill. This is frequent with standard/manual cars on uphills, they can roll back, but with automatic vehicles they usually have a small amount of throttle, (you'll notice this when putting your vehicle from park into drive with your foot off the break, it'll start slowly moving forward)
Now on the hill, if it's a steep incline your car will move backwards, it all depends on how high your throttle (the car itself) is, and the incline depth of the hill.

95 325 is e-brake doesn't fully engage


Adjustment will usually help, but try parking with front pointing down hill next time.(back in, apply E brake .) Emergency brakes usually hold better/well when vehicle front heading down hill. If it doesn't hold with front pointing down, then rear brakes need attention.
