Question about 2001 Mercury Sable

1 Answer

2001 merc sable AX4N floor shift will not move in reverse or drive. The car was working fine no slipping and went to garage to go to work and the tranny would not go. The shifter is shifting through the gears and the car will roll in neutral. With the car off, I put it in neutral and started the car, it lurched forward llike it was in drive, but it wont do it again. Plugged filter? Bad pump? I don't want to change the tranny if I don't need to.

I have a similar problem. Did you figure yours out? I think it might be the pump in the trans.

20001 vw jetta tdi automatic transmission problem


Ok , so you got home , parked it and when you started it up the next day and shifted it into reverse... backed out... and went to shift into drive , it stayed in reverse ?
Have you checked to see that the cable has not disjoined itself from the shifter to the trans.?
Are you able to engage Park?

2003 Mercury Sable will not move in any of the gears. It went from working perfectly to not moving in forward or reverse. It has 121,000 miles on it.


It sounds like it can be either very cheap or very expensive to fix. If you know a little about cars look under the hood at the transmission which is behind the engine.

The engine should only crank in Park and Neutral. If the engine cranks in any gear the shifter is not attached to the cable anymore. The shifter or cable is broken.

You should see something like a shift cable attached to a stem coming out the transmission. You need to determine if the cable moves or rods move. You may need to look under the floor shift too! If either end is not moving when the shifter is moving, then you just need a shift cable.

However, if the transmission levers are moving and the engine cranks only in Park or Neutral then it is the transmission.

If I understand you correctly, you have ALL forward gears working, but reverse doesn't?... then the problem is in the transmission itself or the linkage on the trans linkage into reverse.

Transmission slipping,dies in drive


Hi there.Hope this can help.On the top of the transmission there's a black electrical plug that the shift linkage goes in..It sounds like the range sensor is out of adjustment..If you try going from reverse to like first or second does it still stall.You may have to get it adjusted.Does the selector in the car where it say P R N D 2 1 Line up with its indicator.
