Question about 2007 Ford Territory 4.0

2 Answers

Parked my Ford Territory automatic. As I put it in park, the gears just stayed in reverse. Can't start the car now.

I was driving. Brake fluid also leaked on left side in the front. Did not even use reverse.

If the shifter still moves but the display on the dash says it is in reverse you may have a broken cable you need to get someone to look under the passenger side of the vehicle the shifter runs a cable to the transmission and the end of the cable can break off right at the transmission so while one person is looking you want someone else putting the car from park to drive and back and you should be able to see the lever on the side of the trans moving
. this is not a easy job it is harder than it looks as part of the dash needs to come out to change the cable.
I would recommend if this is the problem contact a dealer and get it towed to a repair shop or dealer
cheers paul

Put a proper screwdriver onto the emergency slot on automatic (usually it's located next to handle) then try to shift to neutral or park. While on gear your engine is blocked from start. Perhaps you didn't push it to the end of P position hard enough.

When i start my car and go to put it in gear it wont move.

When you say rocky spot, what do you mean? If you mean there were rocks in the roadway, you could have put a small hole in the transmission pan which leaked all the fluid out of it. First thing I would do is check the fluid level on the transmission dipstick and look for leaks on the ground under the car.

Transmission making a noise?

From the manual:
The automatic transmission dipstick has a yellow handle.
Before checking the fluid level:

* The car must be parked on level ground
* The engine must be idling
* The gear selector must be in Neutral or Park
* The parking brake must be set

If the car is parked facing down a hill and you must shift into reverse, it will not stay in reverse and sometimes won't go into reverse at all. What kind of tranny fluid does ford recommend?

Does the shifter move or are you holding the car by the parking pawl in the trans. You should be using the parking brake on a hill. Is the trans low on fluid, because it is leaking or you just do no know? Mercon V on the fluid.

It won't switch gears out of park...automatic transmission

Have some one move the shift lever and you watch the linkage under the car to see if the lever is moving on the transmission. Sounds like the linkage is lose. Tighten the bolt on the linkage and you will off and running again.

1995 Buick Park Ave. Brake light remains ON and chimes on driving

The problem is the car think the park brake is on (intermittently). I would check the park brake switch, perhaps it's loose, or perhaps the park brake is pushed down to the first "click" spot. Also check the wiring connection to the switch, and the wiring nearby. Good luck!
