Check the linkage and cable. A word of advice concerning the timing belt. Replace it before 90k miles or if its due again, do not put off having it replaced. Replace the water pump and tensioner also. If the belt breaks, it will bend valves and you may be talking approx $3000.00 for repairs, and most 2003 PT Cuisers are not worth $3000.00 even if they do run.

2006 Forenza goes into every gear but won't move?


is car a stick shift or auto.
must be and automatic trans
so do all shifted selections fail. on the gear shift lever.
lever does work right? moves.?
and PRNDL.
Reverse fail too?
and Drive
and Low.
get car serviced. or if handy....???
check levels, fuses and scan it.

yet another poster that never heard of or seen a stick shifted car.
gee, is it auto or stick
in both cases the cable most move at both ends.
and move correctly, or it will never shift.
have friend shift and you watch at the lever on side of the transaxle,
yes, that be like first and logical, right>

its just a cable shifter. its FWD as most are.


I wont say sounds like, as Im blind here and cant see car, drive it ,feel it or anything.
why ask the blind for help.?????
if it died moving, seems to me the cable didnt fall off and the trans shift to neutral, but?
but your post lack any facts. but died.

if car is AT (auto) check levels? for trans.
check linkage, yet.
check fuses, if it wont shift to 2nd,
if manual same checks, level and linkage works.
only the Fluid is different and the stick shift has a foot clutch and it can go bad too.
a stick shift clutch can fail and slip 100%
so , we can not guess what car you are driving
and asking for help when even you dont know that.
is over the top.

100 series landcruiser does not like goingin reverse, feels like at the brakes are on, the car is reluctant to go backwards


manual or stick shift?????, USA car, or not?
is the lever stuck or
the lever goes to reverse but car wont move in reverse.
2003 series 100 LC
it can be 2 things, the TCM is not commanding Reverse

1996 ranger 3.0 auto tranny won't go into any gears. help!


would the shift lever move? if not it's the tranny lock out, if it moves and feels loose then it's the nut holding the shifting lever on if it won't come out of park then the locking paw is not functioning when you step on the brake. need more make another comment and I'll check back.
