It's hard to say for sure what the problem is, but there are a few things to consider. One, you may have a bad TCU (transmission control unit) - a friend has this issue on an Audi A4. You move the gear selector to put the car in gear, but the TCU i ... 2000 Nissan Altima

1996 Toyota Camry went on vacation for a week. Came home. Drive halfway down the driveway and lost all gears. Sounds fine but doesn't move. Gear only grinds if you try to put it in park. Can turn car off and then put in park but them car still rolls so doesn't appear to really be in park. Did not show any signs of shifting problems before I left. Already checked the cord between the gear shift and transmission and it appears to move correctly.

I have a 1996 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD. Last week it started to make a loud grinding sound when I would coast downhill. Small amount of acceleration would make the sound go away. Today it went **** up. Loud grinding noise when I would put it in gear but no movement and when it is in park it will still roll freely. The sound seems to come from the transfer case, but my Overdrive light keeps flashing.


Have an assistant look at the driveshaft while you put it in gear, to see if its turning.. if its rotating and trucks not moving, problem is in the differential... if it doesnt rotate and there is rotational noise in the transfer case, than i would s ... 1996 Ford Explorer

Clutch issues I have a 2006 Saturn vue. I went to get gas today and the clutch was all the way up. When I went to get into the car to leave the gas station I had trouble putting it in first gear. I made it home and parked it. When I went to run another errand the car would start but when I pushed down on the clutch to put into first, the car would make a grinding sound and would not move out of first or let me change into any gears.


This is a hydraulic clutch, meaning you push fluid to make the clutch move just like the brakes.I would check the clutch master cylinder first to see if it is full of fluid.The master or slave cylinder could have failed, among other things. ... 2006 Saturn Vue

I have a 1998 Ford Taurus. The car will shift into gear but will not move. Once you take the car out of park and go to put it back in park it makes a grinding sound. You have to turn the car off in natural. Any ideals what it could be?


It sounds like a linkage problem. THe shifter is not really putting the transmission into the actual positions you see on the floor shifter indicator. The linkage is out of alignment. Please service it soon before you do damage to the transmission ... Cars & Trucks

My 1997 Plymouth Breeze has a very loud screeching sound when I put it in Park or in Neutral. When I put it in gear it quits making the sound. when left in park it blows the fuse to the starter. I turn the car off right away and it will start right up again without the noise. Only after I run in gear and put it in park or neutral the noise returns. Note I did change the fluid and pan, gasket and filter on the transmission a little over a month ago. Thanks for any suggestions or advice you may ha

Have a 1993 nissan altima. Was driving and transmission just quit like it was put into neutral. It wont go into any gear or park if engine is running. When engine is running and you try to put it in park it grinds. Replaced the transmission with a known good transmission and the replacement is doing the exact same thing. I checked all the signal wires at the tcm and the voltages are all correct. The proper signals are present at the inputs when the gear selector is changed thru the gears. Does

I placed it in park....got out to open our gate....then got in and applyed the brake and dropped the gear stick to drive (it felt loose) I knew something was wrong...it was all the way down and it read N (nutral) so I put the gear stick in P (park) and the gear never changed - it stayed in N (nutral). Now the gear stick wont move at all - its locked in the park position but the truck is in nutral. ???

I pulled infront of my boyfriends house and tried to put it in park and it got stuck in neuteral.. the gear shifter moves freely, but doesn't change the gear what so ever. I can't even put it into park meaning the keys are stuck in it and it's completely worthless right now. it sounds to me like the transmission, but i have no clue and am hopi


You may be able to stop and start the car in neutral using the parking brake. I'm not sure on the 2004. I would check the linkage and linkage cable first. It may be a much easier fix than you think. What gear does the indicator show you and is th ... 2004 Chevrolet Impala

I have a 2005 silverado 1500 HD 4x4 that is popping out of gear. When it happens it slams out pretty hard and then if I put in park or any gear it just makes an awful grinding noise. So I put it in neutral and put it in 4high and then it will slam hard back in to gear. It has 98,000 miles on it. I took it to a transmission shop and the mechanic hooked up his diagnostic computer to it and we went for a ride. He said everything checks out good and there is nothing in the history that even shows up

I have a 2000 Frontier V6 Auto Crew 4x4 with an odd 4x4 issue. When using reverse, the transmission makes a quiet popping noise both when turning or going straight back. When I put it into drive, add accelerate above 25mph, there is a gear grinding noise that worsens when speed increases. If I place the truck into 4x4 while driving, it will make a large thunk, the grinding will stop, and I can put it back into 2wd and no grinding till I put in in park or reverse. Any ideas?

I am having problems when going up steep hills. My car is extremely sluggish, and despite putting my foot to the floor it crawls uphill @ no more than 20mph. I put it into 2nd / 3rd gear but there is no change in engine sound, or gears, and it does not increase in speed. I tried parking on a hill, and putting the car into gear, it didn't roll back. The car is a N reg saloon, with 62,000 on the clock. Apart from this, I have had trouble free motoring.

Car wont shift out of park, brake lights are working, my husband (who works on cars) pushed in the pin inside the gear shift area, went into drive, sounded terrible, drove it home, then oil light came on! Parked car and put in park, couldnt get key out, had to unhook battery. Just had oil changed. Engine sounded as if it were really winding up while driving...yikes help!

I have a 1985 CJ7 6 cyl with a 5 speed manual transmission. While on the interstate in 5th gear it all of a sudden wouldn't accelerate anymore. I downshifted through all gears and it was the same. There were no sounds at all when it happened. Reverse still works fine though. There is no grinding sound when putting it into gear. After letting it sit for a few days it seemed to move better but I haven't tried moving it more than a few feet since I don't know what is wrong with it.


Your narration is short on mechanical clues. Is the engine running "flat" or is the clutch slipping? Do you / did you smell anything when it happened?I'd check two things...clutch and catalytic converter. If clutch is slipping it will reduce av ... 1985 Jeep CJ7

My 93 Wagoneer is 4WD all time. Pulled into town doing about 35mph and heard a loud knock. It would do it a few seconds after taking off from a stop and when It would try to shift. Before I could get where I was going it quit alltogether. I had nothing in 4 wheel high. Even if you put it in Park it will still roll. 4 wheel low works just fine but now in 4 wheel high when you put it in gear (reverse, drive and lower gears) it make a spinning grinding noise sometimes it will stop if you put it in
