    I have a 2005 mercury sable with about 96000 miles. I was driving when it stopped moving. I stopped the car and then pressed the gas and it would not move. I hear a sound like air is exscaping when I put it in gear.

Could be that your linkage is broken and just looks like it is shifting or a bad tranny module or tranny but i would look at the linkage and see if it is hooked up to the tranny.

2000 ford mercury 3.0, shifter wont move. had a fender bender, put it into park and it wouldn't come back out.



For car not changing gears it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.

For more troubleshooting, I suggest you to get the Following help link checked, its complete step by step procedure to inspect gear shift issues: -----

Buick gear shifter moves freely and wont shift gears


you can shift it at transmission by hand to neutral or park and have someone inside start the car and you manually put in gear under hood and drive it to shop or garage, wherever

My 1998 mercury sable won't come out of park but


That happen to me, and A guy helped me. The problem maybe down by the brake pedal, but above the brakes you may have pulled the wires a loose with your feet, or something and the wires need to be put back together maybe with black electrical tape. Definitley have to go down to the floor, and look under where the brake pedal is.

When i put the car in drive it wont move an when i try to back up it wont move i have a mercury mountaineer


I'm sorry to say that you will either have to rebuild the transmission or replace it. All transmissions will start out in 1st. gear when put in drive. Oddly enough this is also the same gear that is used when you are in reverse. please let me know if you need help with anything else.

2002 mercury sable wont go into gear. shifter moves, linkage moves. transmission wont engage and or get out of park


ok sounds like the transmission might be your problem
first you would need to change the transmission filer by pulling the transmission plate and draining and replace filter and fluids new fluids prefferably. if that doesnt fix it. you could have a sensor or computer part out only real way to know is to take to shop to get looked at. hope this helps good luck

2003 Mercury Sable will not move in any of the gears. It went from working perfectly to not moving in forward or reverse. It has 121,000 miles on it.


It sounds like it can be either very cheap or very expensive to fix. If you know a little about cars look under the hood at the transmission which is behind the engine.

The engine should only crank in Park and Neutral. If the engine cranks in any gear the shifter is not attached to the cable anymore. The shifter or cable is broken.

You should see something like a shift cable attached to a stem coming out the transmission. You need to determine if the cable moves or rods move. You may need to look under the floor shift too! If either end is not moving when the shifter is moving, then you just need a shift cable.

However, if the transmission levers are moving and the engine cranks only in Park or Neutral then it is the transmission.

Front wheel drive it wont go into gear and oil sludge on the floor


I suppose you mean that there is oil on the floor where it is parked. It's the same as a Ford Taurus, and I suppose you have a 3.3 engine. Lack of oil in the transmission means that it won't go anywhere. If you fill the transmission with fluid, it will leak out again, but you might be able to drive the car - hopefully to transmission shop to fix it. If the car will not drive with fluid added, then it will have to be taken for repairs. What I do when I have a car that won't drive (and has driven to where it's parked) is to add 2 quarts of transmission fluid and then see if it will move. Normally this works & I can move it into my garage for work. Sometimes it takes 3 or so, but thats usually for full size or pickup transmissions. Rick
