Having problems with your 1989 Ford Crown Victoria ?
1989 Ford Crown Victoria wont go into reverse and drives in nuetral???
\015 I had drove to my buddies house in my car, and when i decided to leave i hopped in my car and had to reverse out, but when i put my car into reverse and pressed the gas the car would only stand still but the engine would idle up, so i tried to put it into neutral and push my car back, but instead it put itself into drive or overdrive and my car idled forward. Pretty sure cars been stuck in overdrive but i haven't confirmed that yet. I checked the fluids in park idling and level, and had enough tranny fluid. Please Help.\015
This sounds like a nut that has come loose on the linkage or selector rod running from the lever in the car to the gearbox. This lever is not fixed so it slides to a point where it settles fixed, temporarily, until it will eventually fix in another position and then select a different gear again.If it has a cable select instead of a lever then the point at the end of the cable and beginning must be checked.
Sounds like your linkage slipped out of sequence. On your transmission there is a place where you can manually shift your tansmission through the gears. When you move the selector on the trani it should move the shifter as well. All the way up on selector should be park, then R,N,D so on. If you move the selector all the way up at your shifter reads something else, you need to adjust the linkage and put car in park with selector on trani in park and tighten linkage back up. Run through all the gears and you should be good.
