Check the transmission fluid level. If it's full you probably have a serious transmission or driveline problem

When I put my 2000 Ford Taurus into reverse or drive it shuts off. But if I drop it into low it drives.


Sigh. The most likely answer is the MAF Boot (Air Mass Sensor) has a crack in it, AND, your motor mounts are worn out. When you put it in gear, there is a significant torquing of the engine, and it tends to try and "move" or twist to get the tired turning, but until you drive that isnt happening so the transmission clutch or torque converter eatst he rotation and allows it to idle. All find and well, HOWEVER, if your motor mounts are bad, then the initial twisting force when it goes into gear causes the engine to move enough that a crack in the MAF sensor will open, causing a massive air leak that tells the computer the wrong amount of intake air, it then sends the wrong amount of gas...engine only runs on right air and fuel. Engine stalls.

When putting in 1st gear, the lower gear coupled with quicker takeoff can sometymes prevent the initial stall and as the engine untorques when it moves back, the crack closes and returns to normal (ish)..
There could also be some electronic answers...but as its very common and easy/cheap to check, Id start there,.

Why would a vehicle in reverse move forward


The question is a little vague but I think I know what your referring to. All modern automatic transmissions have torque converters. This is the device that connects the engine to the transmission. All vehicle manufacturers like the trans to be nice and smooth shifting. That's great but it does come with some minor drawbacks. If you are facing slightly down hill and you put your car in reverse but do not step on the gas slightly I can guarantee that you will indeed roll forward. You can eliminate that issue by holding your left foot on the brake while you shift into reverse. Then, as soon as you feel the trans engage, gently depress the gas pedal with your right foot and it will eliminate that forward roll problem.

2001 ford taurus runs good but will not move when put into gear.


sounds like you have a manual transmission. ?
Worn Clutch plates will give these symptoms
The clutch plates rub together and provide connection between the gear box and the drive shaft if not worn.
Also check the cable for the clutch is not loose and needs a surclip to hold it in at the firewall.
Check if Hydraulic Clutch that there is adequate clutch fluid if low might have leaking clutch master cyclinder

I have experienced this in a car I owned.
Not a lot of fun . Resulted in needing a Tow to repair garage and new clutch was AUD $1200 a couple of years ago.

I have a 1999 Pontiac Sunfire. Transmission is going out I think. When I put it into reverse it's sometimes goes into reverse and sometimes doesn't but I hear a loud knock. fluid is right and not...


putting it into a gear and hearing a knock indicates that the engine mounts or transmission mounts are broken
naturally if you put it in neutral it will not move as that what neutral is
perhaps the neutral position needs adjusting as it may still be in drive
have the fault codes read to determine any sensor/servo/solenoid faults before spending big money on a transmission

Your transmission is shot.It will have to be rebuilt.Or a different trans put into it. Not a cheap repair.$3000 end up. Thats what happens for buying a over price toy guy.

My Ford Windstar 1999 doesn't drive forward or


Has the transmission ever had any services done? Its possible it has just gone out. There are clutches and bands inside and without proper service they will go out.
