Is it a manual trans and when you say "could not move in any gear", does the engine stall when you try to move it? When it moves backward is that with the engine moving? If you answered yes to both questions then the trans is stuck in reverse. You may still be able to move the shifter but something has failed internally. If it has an automatic trans then you may have a simple linkage problem, or it may require a more in-depth inspection.

96 ROVER DISC. Has strong reverse - won't engage any forward gears. Fluid seems full even when warm.


Make sure the 4wd shifter is in correct position and hasn't slipped out of correct spot to get you moving forward.

Land Rover Discovery II 1999 will go in reverse but not forward. Noticed leakage of transmission fluid.


Check transmission fliuid level.
Transmissions work by having proper pressures. If the fluid level is too low there will not be enough pressure to engage it in gear.
Then find your leak and fix it.

2002 Land Rover Discovery rolls when it is in PARK.


It is known as the Parking Pawl assembly, and requires removal of the gearbox from the vehicle along with the transfer box. You then remove the extension housing (requiring new bolts) and then replace the park lock gear and o'ring.

Car wont roll forward or back even in neutral


I assume it's a manual transmission.
If the car will not roll backward or forward in neutral (with or without the clutch engaged) the transmission is most likely locked in two gears at the same time.
This may happen if gear selectors are excessively worn. If you are able to examine the gear selection levers external to the gearbox, ensure they are in the 'neutral' (no gear selected) position when the gear lever is in Neutral. If not in correct position, you may be able to manually reset the levers to correct neutral position and thereby unlock the gearbox.
In any case, if it's happened once, it will happen again, so get the gearbox and gear selection mechanism checked for wear or breakage.

Four wheel drive shifter will not move


Put the transmission into neutral, then allow the vehicle to roll backwards, this will unbind the transfer case, pull on the shifter while rolling. If that doesn't work, then your linkage under the vehicle has something putting it in a bind. look around and make sure it moves around with slack. Enjoy
