2004 Lincoln aviator goes into gear but won't move


bad transmission maybe. Try going into a lower gear (2 or 1) and giving it a little gas and holding it there. (about 2500 rpm) Hold it there for about 30 seconds.
If it still doesnt move, look under at the side of the transmission where the shifter cable connects and make sure it is moving.
Make sure the brake is on and the wheels are blocked and have a friend shift it back and forth while you look.
Sometimes, the connection pin comes out and you wont shift. .
If it does move right away, head to the transmission shop.

Saturn will not shift into gear


If the shifter won't move, you could have a problem with the brake switch or the solenoid that unlocks the shifter.

Why won't the gear shift move to drive


you need to check and see if your brake lights are working, the same switch operates the shift interlock solenoid.

2000 Ford Tarus- Took off from stop sign just fine then car wouldn't go faster. As I pushed the gas, the car reved but wouldn't go. Pulled over and shut car off. Started car again and tried...


I would guess that something inside of the transmission has failed and there is no longer a mechanical connection between the motor and the drive axles regardless of what gear you attempt to move in.[sheared splines, broken planetary, etc.] Often when this happens you won't hear any kind of noise because of the failed parts being inside the transmission case...instead the car just won't go anymore. You could have a CV drive axle joint that has failed but generally they will make some noticable rattling or grinding noise as they churn away when you try to go forward or reverse. If something has failed inside of the transmission then the transmission will need to be removed and repaired. It if is just a drive axle joint that has failed then that can be replaced without doing anything to the transmission. Hope this helps and good luck!

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!
