"Engine Failsafe Mode" message appeared after down-shifting to D2 when going down a steep hill. Speedometer showed high speeds but only going slow. Pulled over, shut off the engine. Read the manual - could not find exact error message but while I began waiting the 15 - 20 minutes as recommended for similar problems the vehicle started moving - WHILE IN PARK! I put the emergency brake on. After waiting, I re-started the vehicle -- no gears worked, engine just revved and the "check engine light" c

1996 Buick Century- When accelerating from stop, engine revs but car won't move in Drive. Once up to 30mph in another gear (2nd, etc) will move in Drive. Problem started with stall-like shaking during accelerating from stop. Also, loud revving noise from 45mph to levelling off at 60mph. Seems like car wants to continue running even when I stop accelerating. I am able to coast at full speed for approx. 1/10 mi. Breaks checked-fine. Is it transmission or fuel line issue?

Hi, I have a 94 Pajero Nj 2.8TD with a 4M40 engine, and when the engine is revving over 2000, be it in gear or out of gear, there is a tap tap scraping noise which increases in speed with the engine. I have taken it to the mechanics and they have told me it is normal diesel noise. I really don't agree, any ideas? The noise is also slightly worse when the engine is cold, but is still present when hot. Any help muchly appreciated!

Once car is indrive the car will not go any faster than 20 mph without revving the engine after driving for about 5-6 minutes then it will go into gear and allow faster speeds, once you brake or stop it continues the same pattern.

I have 1999 Jimmy. When I turn off the engine, the ignition switch won't turn all the way to lock so I can't pull my key out. Another time I couldn't push the button on the gear shifter (safety lock) to move it out of park and had to have a flatbed towtruck pick it up. They disengaged the safety mechanism so now I don't need to push the button on the gear shifter (floor) to move it out of park.

I cannot shift my 98 Sable out of park into a gear after it starts, if I turn the engine off then turn the key to on (not engaging the starter) the gear shift can be moved to neutral then the engine starts and I can shift to any gear. If I choose park I need to turn the car off and go through this process to get the car in neutral again. It sounds like an eletrical connection but where?


Sounds like a problem with the brake light switch. Do the brake lights work? It is a problem with the shift interlock system. It is controlled by the brake light switch on the brake pedal bracket. ... 1998 Mercury Sable

My 2005 Ford Ranger gets stuck in "park". I start the truck, pull the handle towards me and it doesn't want to move to any other gear. I have been able to turn off the engine, put the key in and not start the engine, put the gear in neutral and then turn the engine on and am able to move into reverse or drive after that.

Have the transmission repaired or replaced. The shift arm that shifts the gears is probably broken. That is why you cannot switch gears and is making that noise. ... 1992 Toyota Corolla

2000 Dodge Grand Caravan A604 transmission. Engine runs in Park When shifted into gear - metallic crunch and engine stops. Kind of like the situation when the old parking paw engaged before the car stopped type noise. Is there a physical paw on these that is not releasing? People had problem w/ slippage. Changed the trans. filter w/ 6 qts fluid - something is locking the trans/ engine stalls. Thank You for your advice - Chris K Central Park Repair, Bozeman, MT

Dear Experts, Before days I faced a critical and anonymous probelm. I parked the car and stopped the engine. But, I didn't take the keys out. After I started my engine again, I was unable to shift the gear lever from P to R, N & D. Then, I decided to use the Shift-Lock. I moved it to D. But the car was a little bit heavy, I believed its not the first gear select. I was not able to make the gear lever to R or P positions. Also, the gear select signs in the instrument cluster has disapppered. Afte

I have a Toyota Tercel 92 with 120 000 miles on a rebuilt engine (225 000 miles total). When I engage the engine in first gear the speedometer needle doesn't move until the engine reaches a speed of 5-10 mph. This is accompanied with a noise that sounds like gear slipping? Could this be a defect flywheel ? If so how hard is it to fix? I hope I can do it myself.


Your 92 Tercel probably has a cable driven speedometer which has a cable that goes from the transmission case to the back of your speedo. Look on the back of the transmission case for a cable about 3/8 inch diameter.\015\012It is unlikely it is ... 1992 Toyota Tercel

I have a Toyota tercel 92 with 120 000 miles on a rebuilt engine (225 000 miles total). When I turn the key, not every single time but most of the time, I hear a single, hard clunk.

I was told that the starter assembly is the problem and to change it for a rebuilt one. Will a rebuilt starter be reliable? Is this a


Replacing the starter is one of the easiest things to do. Just unhook the battery first so you dont pop a fuse when you unhook the cable from the starter. Rebuilt starters are the norm. Noone buys new ones unless you have deep pockets. You only h ... 1992 Toyota Tercel
