It might as simple as a loose shift lever at the transmission or it could actualy be the transmission itself (splipping clutch pack). I would have the transmission checked and serviced if you haven't done so already.

Changed transmission fluid and filter on 2001 mustang now it will not move while it is in Drive


Well..., then just sit in the driver's seat and make noises like as if you're really driving it (ha,ha)sorry,just needed to put a smile on your face. Anyways,when/IF transmission converter is emptied,it needs to refill fully as it makes mechanisms(valves,so on)work to make the car move;now that is IF it was drained from also there. If you drained the fluid from the transmission pan(drain plug),changed the filter PROPERLY INSTALLED,refilled 2 thirds while engine off then running safely in PARK (parking brake on)fill to recommended amount checking with dipstick ,while in the car with brake pedal on,put in drive-neutral-reverse to make transmission's mechanisms make operation until car starts making a movement, then it should be okay. Are you sure you didn't nock something out of place,like linkage for gear changes??. Does the car make any noises when shifting gears??make a clunk noise??does it try to move??;need to know more details for someone to understand and find problem.

Buick rendezvous gear shifts just fine but car won't move. No grinding shifting is smooth and flawless vehicle just will not move forward whether it is in drive, 1st, 2nd, or third gear. Reverses and


Sounds as if forward driving gears are shot. Different gears make vehicle move in reverse. I would ask if transmission fluid level when checked is in the operation range or full.

Vehicle was working fine without any problems one day and the next day - totally locked up when I started it and tried to back up. First thought the parking brake was somehow engaged fully, but when I...


What i would start with is jack up the rear two tires and try to freely move them with your hands.

If they are locked in place then you have a problem with your rear brakes.

If the back ones both turn freely. Then move on to the front and jack up the front of the car.

You can check to see if the transmission by either turning on the vehicle and putting it in drive with both front tires off the ground and see if both spin freely. If one if them locks up then you have a problem with your front brakes.

Take it one step at a time and check everything out brake wise again, even though you latched and released the parking brake the spring mechanism could be broken and locking it in place.

My 2001 dodge grand caravan 3.8l cuts off when i shift from park to any gear and the transmission fluid i checked from the dipstick is black and metalic looking


so it idles fine as long as it is in park. when you shift it into gear it stalls?

Does it feel like if you had a manual transmission and you let out the clutch with your foot on the brake?

if you are in a place you can do this safely without hitting anything try starting it while the transmission is in neutral. After it starts put it into either drive or reverse with your foot off the brake. Does it start to move, then the rpms start to drop fast and then stall?

Again if you can do this in a safe place what happens if you do the above and as soon as it goes into gear you give it a little gas? Will it move and stay running until you come to a stop? If yes the torque converter is locked.

Unfortunately from the description of the fluid and this symptom your likely looking at replacing the transmission.

Impala doesn't go into park


I suspect that there is a simple fix.
Under the car.... at the point where the shift lever rod connects to the transmission shift lever(s)...... loosen the nut on the Park transmission shift lever... and place the lever all the way into the park position.... You can confirm by attempting to start the car....
Once you are sure that it is in "Park", you can tighten the shift lever nut....

2000 Rodeo has intermittenly starting problems


It sounds as if your neutral safety start switch may be failing. This switch only allows for the safe start of an engine when the automatic transmission is in either park or neutral. It seems when you move around the gear selector you get it back to a spot where the switch allows the engine to start. Next time this happens while in park, try wiggling around the gear selector or place your foot on the brake (so you don't roll away) and place the transmission in to neutral. If it fires up you know to either adjust or replace the switch for the park position.

I hope this might have helped,
Tom
