This could very well be an issue with the linkage needing adjustment, a bent fork, or the first gear is damaged. You will need to get it into a transmission shop or the dealer or a vw specialty shop to have it looked at further.

This is a Direct Problem with the Transmission. When they **** and Stop as Described above, The only thing that can be Done is a Rebuild. The Clutches on the Inside of the Transmission have Siezed and Probably Caused Major Damage inside. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

SOURCE: transmission will shift, but car won't move.

there is a linkage inside the transmission that came off or lose so you might have to take it to a mechanic to get in there and repair so do not start car no more and you might have to have the car towed to a mechanic to look at it.

SOURCE: Hard to shift my gears when car in cold.Won't even go out of neutral to 1st gear.Forget about going into reverse.

With the engine off, check your operation of the gear shift. If you can go in and out of the gears fine without the engine running, then you have a worn clutch disc that needs replaced. If the problem still exists then you either have low fluid/weak hydraulic system, or there is a problem with the syncro that may be adjusted.

Why it will not go into gear?


check to see if the brake lights are working. some cars have a lockout for the gear shifter that won`t allow you to shift out of park if they are not working. it is wired into the brake light switch so when the switch or fuse is not working then the car won`t shift out of park.

88 ford f150 gear shift lock


A common cause when the gear is on the steering column is a worn out pin. That pin holds the lever to the shift assembly. Try removing the gear shift lever and examine it.
  • If the bushing between the pin and the shift is worn out, replace it.
  • Examine the tip of the the gearshift and replace the shift if it's worn out.
Hope I've helped. If not please feel free to contact me with more details.

My 2004 kia sorento won't shift past 3rd gear. Changed the transmission fluid, still won't shift.


have you tried shifting with the car stopped not running does it shift easy or hard sometimes the syncro inside the trans gets worn or the shifter fork could be bent damaged usually a trans shop or specialist can help you work on it because its a big job tom pull out the trans and tear it apart but if you want to do it yourself its possible

Why wont car shift into gear


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

You may want to start adjusting the brake pedals. If it detects that you are not stepping on the brake then it won't shift into gear.
If the gear is moving but won't shift gears while running then you may want to start on replacing the transmission fluid. It can be burnt that's why it's not operating properly.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
