Why would a 1989 LeSabre not go into reverse sometimes have to put the car in neutral push the accelerator then put it in reverse and it will work how can this be fixed?
Before there can be an answer, need to know transmission type; 6 speed manual or 6 speed automatic?If its the manual, its the clutch takeup cable. The shifter should have a button or detent to push in order to move it into Reverse. Its most likely loose.If its the automatic, its most likely the b...
When you put it in reverse it make a noses and will not go anywhere but you put it in to neutral it will stop?
well it depends if your wanting to go backwards then you put the car in reverse . or if your wanting to stop then you put the car on neutral.
THe transmission selector is worn, so the need to start it in the neutral position, which still has a workable contact switch, while the park position is worn out. like the other guy said, also you might have to adjust your shift linkage
Sometimes it will change gears and sometimew it won't sometimes it will go into reverse and some times it won'tis there a computer chip for shifting?
Try having the ATF and transmission filter changed. If that doesn't help you probably have a failing "valve body" in the transmission.
1992 Chevy Corsica starts fine But If you try to put the gear from park into reverse or neutral it stays in drive you cannot go into reverse What is the problem and how can you fix it the ceapest?
sounds like a transmission replacement is needed. you could always buy it from a scrap yard or online, but you most likely wont get a warranty and it may not even work once it is installed. the best route would be to just buy a new transmission, and if you have the know how, install it yourself.
Physically can't shift to reverse - maybe linkage worn or out of adjustment Car won't move in reverse -(Auto) maybe bad transmission pump
Your car won't start unless you pushed the shift lever forward in park. After a while it would not start in Park so you put it in Neutral to start and that worked. Now it won't start at al?
The Park and/or Neutral switch is out of adjustment. There is a hidden switch that must be engaged by mechanical means in order for the starter motor to be engaged. This is to prevent accidental starting while the car is in a forward or reverse motion gear, which could result in the vehicle movin...
When you put your truck in reverse its making a slipping noise and will not move when you put it into drive from park theres no problem?
Your transmission is done. Take it to a tranny shop.If you have a Manual tranny: Your blocker rings are worn out or you somehow successfully ground the teeth off of a straight gear.If it's an auto tranny: Could be hydraulic valve problems or clutch pack/band problems.
It can always be fixed. What that consists of.. it would help to know your transmission a little better, i.e., whether it's a manual or automatic, as well as if it goes into neutral (and park, if applicable). Diagnosing from a distance, unfortunately, prohibits a tech from being able to see the p...
When i make a u turn my car stops accelerating. So I have to pull over and put it into park to get it to go again. Why would it do this?
You may have too little transmission fluid in your car which makes the transmission stop working when you turn and the fluid goes to the outside of the turn. Stopping lets the fluid run back down to the rest of the transmission so it can work again. You should have someone check the fluid level. ...
What would cause my throttle to be at maximum when in neutral and when moved to max power and in gear goes to minimum power bg when initially turned on would not go into gear and throtted worked?
Without more specific information, I'm going to take a guess and say it is wired backwards.
Could be many things and depends very much on the vehicle.
When you accelerate on your Chevy Z24 the car does not pick up any speed until it hits 3500 rpm then it feels like it jumps into gear what could be the problem and how can you fix it?
First, I would have your transmission checked. It sounds like the transmission is starting to go. I would rule this out first. Also, you could check the level of your transmission fluid, If it gets too low, it will make it start to slip, if it is low, check for a leak! Hope this is helpful!
When you put your car in reverse it will not go in reverse but in drive it is okay Is that a serious and costly job Is that a sign of the transmission needing to be rebuilt?
Yes you need to get a new transmission, because somehow you burnt out your reverse so it wont move in reverse. So you will probably have to get a new one. A cheap one is roughly $2000 give or take $100.
1989 beretta the motor gets hot after driving it for about 30 minutes. I put the car in Neutral and it will cool down as you coast Then you can put it back in drive and go for 10 minutes then hotagain?
Low on antifreeze/antifreeze leak...loosenut...www.ceriousproductions.com
A sticking accelerator is usually the result of binding throttle cables or a broken return spring. Make sure that these items are ok as a stuck accelerator can be dangerous.
Why would a 4T60-E trans not move until car reaches operating temp and then drive and shift fine But every time it comes to a stop it shifts into neutral move the shift selector and it shifts fine?
my Honda acura has me stumped i will start off with this. my reverse works and the low works.but as soon as i take off i can shift into drive and it works fine.but if i come to a complete stop it wont move in drive i have to put it back down into low gear and also when i put it in park my car wil...
1994 Ford Taurus when you put it into gear it kicks in but slowly moves into drive and rarely works in reverse is it the transmission or possibly a sensor or could it be the gears?
You have a 12 year old transmission that is in serious need of service. Have the fluid and filter changed and see where you stand after that. If the problems still persists, take it to a professional.
If you are having trouble starting your 95 Town Car because it won't go in park however it will start in neutral is this a linkage adjustment problem and how do you fix it?
Looks like the Neutral switch for older model but change name in 1995 but same part, it is under your car on the driver side, look for the transmission pan to give a point...on the side your will see a piece in half-moon with two bolts each side and a connection...easy to remove and replace as on...
Because it is usually a mechanical cable that is connected to a front axle or the transmission. Newer cars relay this information electronically and will show the actual speed when in reverse.
Could older cars like those built in the 1960s and 70s be put into neutral without keys in the ignition?
Steering column locks were introduced on General Motor products in 1969 and on both Ford, Chrysler, and AMC products in 1970. On cars with automatic transmissions, these locks also prevented the gear shift lever from being moved.
Most likely a bad turn signal flasher
A car shakes when stopped at lights but when you put on Neutral or accelerate it's OK why How much would cost to fix?
If this is a Ford Escort (aka Tracer) get the powertrain mounts neutralized, and if that doesn't work, just remember that Escorts are like that.If not an Escort, suspect low idle speed, misfire at idle typical of poor fuel control, or damaged or soft powertrain mount.== == low idle tune up out of...
My 1990 Nissan maxima will not shift out of first and will not go into reverse plus the fluid looks like milk?
The transmission fluid cooled by routing it through the radiator. The fluid probably is a milky color because the radiator had failed internally allowing the coolant and transmission fluid to mix. Check the coolant and if looks milky change the radiator, coolant, and transmission fluid.
I have 1989 firebird I Run the car for about 40 minutes then security light comes on and will not resart. Let car sit and it restarts?
just buy a remote start for it -- trust me -- it will save you grief in the long run. Your key is likely not being read because of the amount of use in the ignition, the remote start simulates the resistor in your key to the security system so it can remote start the car. I just use the remote st...

97 E 420mercedes crank will not start alarm light blink have to open hood and lock and unlock door then it will start sometimes if it rain you have to let it sit for a while?
anti theft system is causing problems, the hood pin seems to be the culprit. It will malfunction and set off the anti theft system not allowing the vehicle to start, then when you open and close the hood it sets properly and allows you to reset. Might be best to remove alarm fuse for now, that wa...
You tried to do a burnout by going in reverse then to neutral revving the car up then throwing it into drive now the car won't move what is wrong?
I hope you have money because the transmission is gone! And they are not cheap. I recommend a rebuilt transmission. Expect to pay about 1000 to 2000 dollars for the repair job.
I would suspect a clogged transmission filter. Have the transmission fluid changed and the filter replaced. See where you stand after this service. Do not have the transmission flushed. But also make sure they change all the fluid and not just what is in the pan.
97Chevy blazer will not move when put into gear changed fuild and filter already I had to replace the motor and when I tried to put in gear it wouldn't go why?
check gear shift linkage if transmission is bad
There are times when my 2004 4-Runner will not move when put into drive. Then there will be a pop or clunk in the rear end and the vehicle will start to move forward.?
sounds like transmission problems( not moving in drive) and u-joint problems(pop or clunk
My car is running However sometimes when pressing gas the car will jerk and shudder It will do this while driving as well Could it be fuel injecters?
If it is front wheel drive it is probably the from motor mount check that.. if not check all the basics first. Spark plugs fuel filter etc.
Why would a automatic 92 celica suddenly go into neutral shifter still in drive and when car is turned off re-started car after 30 seconds crank up and run good repeats back into the neutral?
there is a small sensor under the lever which tells the cars computer on which position the lever is. The sensor may have broken down so it is reading you are in neutral while you are still in the drive position. It is a cheap fix.
Why would 4wd light or truck not go into 4wd when switching the truck into 4wd not work on a 97 mercury mountaineer?
the switch might have went out this is a common problem that hapens with bush butting 4x4 or turney nob wich ever it is put it to the 4x4 spot then hit the gas to see if it is relly in 4x4 or if the back tire just spin
I have a manual daihatsu feroza. Generally while the car is in neutral or im waiting at the lights the car would be idling high. Why is this?
Hi from Greece,if idling revs up only while you depress the brake pedal ,there might be a vacuum leak at the servo unit.If high reving happens irrespectable of braking,then the fault might be a tight accelerator cable,a vacuum leaking from a hose or elsewhere at the intake manifold area or an ele...
The ABS system requires 10.5 volts to operate, so if the charging output of the alternator was below this level, the ABS light would come on, and the ABS system would shut down. If the output is far below this level (say, zero, if the alternator failed), your battery would not charge, and the car...
My 1997 windshield wiper motor works but when put on pause will keep running and then stop where ever it wants. After awhile it works like it is supposed to. What can cause this?
sounds like the printed circuit board is causing the problem. on some wiper motors you can purchase the circuit board separate from your local auto parts store. and replace it without removing the wiper motor from the vehicle.i hope this helps you out.
Why would your car shake when you come to a stop sign and does not shake when you put it in neutral or any other gear?
== == The idle rpm may be too high and causing the tranmission to try to engage. You could have a bad torque converter. sometimes when it can't shift down into first without shaking, it's because your car is having trouble sticking in overdrive. has it ever stalled?== ==
You have a 2000 ford expedition sometimes when you put in the key turn it nothing happens not even a clicking sound what could it be?
The starter solenoid near the battery should be checked.
If you bought a 1989 Nissan 240sx with 140000 miles on it so it ran pretty good until the clutch went out now the parts and labor will cost you 500 will it be worth fixing a car this old?
I would say so - if the car runs well enough, $500 isn't a lot to fix a clutch either.
When you shift gears and press on the gas again the car wont go then it will shake violently then accel erate?
you have to ease on the clutch, transition between releasing the clutch and applying the gas.
When parked downhill and need to reverse uphill when you put in reverse the car rolls forwards is this right or is something not right?
Assuming you're driving a car with a manual gearbox, a reverse hill start is fairly straight-forward.To Start with, you need to have your handbrake fully on, this will stop the car from rolling.With your clutch pedal pushed fully down, select reverse, then gradually bring your clutch pedal up tow...
Your low pressure tire light won't go off or stop blinking I put air in the tires but it still won't go off How can you fix this?
This is a known problem on some vehicles. Check with your dealer to see if your car has been the subject of a re call campaign.
Why does a Chevrolet Cavalier transmission not shift and only goes 30 mph and then starts losing speed and acting like its in neutral?
There could be an internal problem with the transmission. Check the transmission fluid for a burnt smell or odd color, indicating transmission damage.
Why would you have to reset the date and time every time you turn on the car and how can you fix this?
If it is on the radio and most likely an aftermarket system they wired it wrong. There should be a wire that has constant power from the battery to keep up on the time. If its in the computer system I am not sure. Probably similar though like a bad wire so its not getting that power from the batt...

While driving my car the accelerator would not work when you push the gas. I turned the car off and it did not start back up again. whats the problem?
sounds to me like a fuel pump if the engine continued to run but accelerator did not work then check for broken or disconnected accelerator cable both at the pedal and the throttle plate
check all fuses and relays grounds ect
After reversing out the drive I could not put the car in 1st gear and was stuck in reverse the car has been back to the garage 3 times in the last 6 months regarding this matter can anyone help?
Vw uses a linkage system that has small bushings and plastic tie-rods that wear over a period of time. These are situated just on top of the tranny in a linkage unit. They can be dismantled and replace. Also the base of the gear lever has a replaceable bushing. If these are okay and you have a no...

Yes. Fuses protect a circuit from further damage by "blowing". So if you have a "blown" fuse there is a reason for it. If you replace the blown fuse with a new one of the same amp rating and it blows again have the system checked out.It is one of the possible reasons. A faulty relay (if there's a...

Car starts but unless reeving the engine a little it will stall I Can put in gear with foot on brake while reeving then let up on brake and it will stay started and run until I go to brake?
Had the same problem with my Lincoln. . . . There is a lever that you can rev the engine up from under the hood, that needs to be adjusted to keep more gas going to the vehicle. This is what I did over a year ago and it's still working fine. The downfall is that since it's giving more gas, it obv...
Why does a Nissan Stanza Auto gear shift move normally but car does not go into any gears you can see the shaft slide into the transmission but car always acts as if it were in park or neutral?
If I remeber corectly the shifter shaft in the Transmision rotates, not go in and out.But regardless of that this transmision has a serious internal problem.It could be as easy as the linkage inside the transmision has fallen apart or the whole inside of the Transmision is ruined.BUT FIRST: Check...
What does it mean if you put the car into one of the gears but it will not go move for about five or ten minutes?
the strainer in the transmission is more than like;y stopped up.
Why would a car that has been sitting outside for over a year not move when put in gear with the engine running or pushed in neutral with the brake off?
just because the brake is off dose not mean it is not sticking, thsi is usually do to rust. if the parking brake was left on then it could be sticking to. you might want to try and spray a rust penetrant on the moving parts and try and make the parts move. try and work the parking brake and the b...
Your 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2 L Automatic Transmission is not shifting properly in order to get it to shift from 3 to 4 you have to shift it into neutral for a second and then back to Drive.?
This is a very common problem on Dodge transmissions and I'm about to fix this problem myself on my 1997 5.9L 1500. It's most likely being caused by faulty ATF selenoids. Replacing these selenoids will fix your problems, but most likely only temporarely. They usually become clogged due to metal s...
Why would the Lexus 400 not run after you put it in park and turn the engine off and try to restart it?
It could be many things but it depends on what you mean by "won't run." I would need a little more background information. I will assume that it was running, and you parkd it, and then would not restart. Did it crank, or click, or do absolutely nothing? If it cranks but does not start there is a ...
Why is it that a 1989 Honda Accord Starts up but when the key is let go it shuts off As long as the key is held in Run the car does not shut off What can cause this?
Check the ignition switch and the coil resistor if the Honda has one. When the starter is engaged there is a direct connection to the coil. The intention is to give the coil a little more voltage when the starter is engaged. If the ignition switch isn't connecting properly you won't run when you ...
Why will car start good run 10 seconds go dead may or may not restart but will not stay running and suspect relay switch for fuel but don't know where it's located hear fuel pump kick in only sometim?
Your fuel filter may be blocked or you may have something in the tank. Verify that you have fuel pressure when the engine stalls. If you do, it could be something electronic that is failing when it gets warmed up. Unfortunately, this sounds like one of those problems that may take a little invest...
Some type of milky fluid keeps going into my engine coolant in my 1993 Buick Lesabre but my car is not over heating and there are no other signs of a cracked head gasket could it be another problem?
Small amounts of oil in the engine coolant will result in a milky looking coolant. When a small amount of oil "emulsifies" with water, it turns into small droplets and floats around in suspension. It's kind of like water droplets floating around in the air. We all know that as fog. You should be ...
If you were going about 25 in reverse and slammed it into 1st gear on a automatic and now only second third drive and reverse work do you need a new transmission or just more fluid?
if you were going 25 in reverse and slammed it into first like that, you more than likely broke the gear... it would probably be in your best interest to get a new transmission now since you've done some serious damage to your existing one, to which no amount of fluid is likely to fix
Can you insure a car titled to your son Or will it have to be in the parents name He will be listed as principle driver of the car on the parents policy Would this effect an accident claim?
The vehicle must be insured by the person whose name appears on the title. Only the person who holds the title/deed to property has insurable interest in said property, thus they are the only ones who can take out an insurance policy to protect it. If the parents wish to insure the vehicle on the...
If a car sound good and idles good but when put in gear will only move slow until it dies can this be a transmission problem?

Why did the EGR valve for the 2000 Ford Windstar start to work again just before bringing it in to be fixed?
A EGR valve can stick 'open' due to carbon build-up and although is may seem a fluke, it will stick open again causing the rough idle that you had before. Chances are it will get worse, so I would recommend that you do replace it. I hope this helps you. Mark
My car gets to about 30 mph and loses acceleration while in drive.When I push the gas the rpms will go up but it will barely gain any speed.Can you ride an auto. car in 2nd gear constantly?

What might be wrong with an 1991 Integra when driving the car we lost acceleration then as it slowed it turned off now it will not restart No indicators came on and no smell of any fumes?
It could possibly be the timing chain. If you remove the valve cover, you can inspect it to see if it is broken.
What if your 1998 town cars has troubles with the steering wheel it spins freely and the wheels will not turn What is the fix for this problem?
If the steering wheel spins freely but the wheels don't turn, the steering shaft (which runs from the steering wheel, into the engine compartment, and down to the steering box) probably came apart.Usually there are one or more joints in the steering shaft, to allow it to angle around obstructions...

1992 c2500 6.5 diesel trans will not go into overdrive when it warms up but when first crank and drive it wil work until it warms Anyone know why?

You have changed your brake booster on your 95 Chevy truck and now your brakes wont work nor will it go into gear whats wrong?
It sounds like a vacuum problem. Either you got a bad brake booster or the vacuum line came loose somewhere or cracked when you changed the booster.

Recently my amp in my car messed up it keeps going on and off when you hook it up and the protection light is on any one have any idea why it would do this?
The amp is damaged internally, the power is loose, the ground is loose, the control wire from the deck is loose.
Could be a blown fuse or a faulty circuit breaker, a faulty relay, a faulty temperature sensor or the fan motor may be at fault.
What could be the problem when you take car to shop to get tune up and other work Now car jerks when put in reverse and drive?

What could be the problem when you take car to shop to get tune up and other work Now car jerks when put in reverse and park?
Take it back to the shop and complain.
Your dash has stoped working you can not put the car in gear and the alarm will not stop going off when you turn the car off I have to leave the key in the on spot 2001 Toyota celica GT how to fix?
It is possible that your battery and\or alternator has failed. You have to have so much juice to get the safety switch to kick on so that you can move the gear shifter. Put in a new battery or charge the battery and I bet it will solve this. You should be able to take the key out any way. Good luck.
1988 Chevy blazer sometimes refuses to accelerate or if going over 50 it will suddenly slow down to a stop even with my foot on the gas and there is also sometimes bad fumes.?
Your description indicates a problem with the fuel delivery system, first check the fuel filter it may be clogging, also the fuel pump may be getting weak and not able to deliver adequite fuel pressure during high demand.
