2000 ford taurus- wont shift into gear

I have a 2000 ford taurus. we replaced the front springs. next thing i know, i'm driving down the road and i am costing. the car starts and runs fine. but it doesnt go into gear. after it had been parked a few hours t was stuck in park. the gear selector moves like normal. but the car doesnt move. the transmission was not acting up in any way before it happened. what could possibly be wrong? i have stayed on top of all scheduled maintance. and i bought the car just over a year ago from a ford dealership.

    I have a 2004 Ford Taurus. After driving for a while, when the car get warm, it will not move in reverse, or slowly moves. When the car is cool, it goes into reverse just fine. Is the transmission going out or is it something else?

    i bought my car from a private owner and when I drove it home the gear shift indicator worked perfectly fine when I went to drive it next day the little orange needle did not move when I went to shift from park to reverse.

First check drive axels , since you replaced front springs on struts i assume. it is possible that one of the axels popped out. next if thats ok check fluid level in trans with eng OFF should show over full make a srcribe mark on the stick. then START the eng it should go down to full or just below depends if trans is full or a little low . if level does not drop approx.1/2 in or so then have a transmission shop check for bad splines in torque convertor, that is a comon problem in that car, year and milage do not play a roll a large roll in parts failure in trans any more. not like it use-to.

As I would drive the 2000 ford focus I'm not sure if it was the clutch or the transmission but its like the car would go to a lower gear for a minute and then catch back up. Then I happened to be driving...


I believe it's your clutch. If you can shift gears okay with the engine off, but you cannot shift gears with the engine running, (the gear shifter only grinds when trying to shift into first?) then your clutch has worn out.
To replace a clutch, the transaxle has to be first removed from the car. I'm afraid you will have to have it towed to a shop or garage.

2000 Ford Taurus not getting gas


If your in gear (D) for example and you hit the gas, engine revs, but car doesn't speed up, it's a problem with your transmission, and the first thing you can do is have the fluid level checked, and add fluid if needed. If that's not the cure, take it to a transmission shop & have it diagnosed.
