Yes. I have had some experience here. Please check the following things. 1) See if you can get the wheels off the ground so you can get under the van and see if the transmission is working properly if you shift it manually underneath where the levers are on the side of the transmission case.
If it does work properly underneath, check these two things.
1st, the older problem is missing or worn-out white nylon bushings on the shifting linkages coming from the gear shifter to the transmission
Second is the shifting mechanism inside the steering column may be shot, and worn out, and the shifting from the driver's seat is not being translated to the transmission. I found there are two black plastic bushings inside the steering column for the shift mechanism that wear out before 100 K and cause the problem you are describing. If however, your tranny will not shift by hand underneath the van while is it is running, you may actually have a transmission problem. I suspect not.
Be blessed.

The van will not shift out of park when started.


  • Neutral safety switch sends a signal to the on-board computer to allow the engine to start and to engage the transmission
  • When not replaced, vehicle may experience no start and/or transmission will not shift out of park.Here's the part Damon.

99 ford e-350 V-10 Transmission seems to go into neutral?


these transmissions will not function properly if they don't have Mercon V in their transmissions. If any other type of ATF was added, it may gel in the tranny pan creating a lack of engagement, followed by a rhythmic vibration/rattle. Try flushing the tranny

2006 freestar will not go into any gear. all gears give the apperance of neutral except park.


This is a recall just like the 2005 Freestars. Your Freestar more and likely has a defective torque converter and worn out splines in your transmission. This is a life threatening recall and Ford inc has been looking at it as a casual recall. Get this to your Ford dealer today and have them fix it at no charge to you. Problem solved.

I was driving today in my 2004 Ford Freestar van when all of a sudden the transmission stopped being engaged. I pulled over, no problem with the moter, but it would not slip back into drive reverse etc. No...


I have seen a problem with torque convertors on these vehicles, they will just all the sudden neutral out and that is it no noise no codes nothing... alot of times depending on the failure of the convertor just the convertor can be changed.... what usually happens is the splines inside of the convertor sheer off and once a new convertor is put in everything is back to normal.

2004 ford windstar replaced gear shift sensor but does not engage however when i move the stick the doors lock and the back up lights com on when in reverse but van feels like its still in neutral do i...


sounds like your issue is either involving the torque convertor, or more than likely the transmission is at fault. your gear shift lever is actually mechanically linked to the trans, the gear position sensor would not cause the van not to move, sorry for the bad news!
