2003 Ford Taurus Q&A
2003 Ford Taurus Question: shifting gears
You may have an internal transmission problem. Have it checked by a transmission shop. It could be a shifter problem, I don't think so, but no way to tell for sure from here. - Superbob
Do your brake lights stay stuck on (or off) and your car stays stuck in park? If they do, then look online at what could cause this. I can't remember what the part was called, but it has to do with the brake pedal, not the transmission. It happened to me at the grocery store. It's a cheap part to replace and doesn't take long to put on the car. It all was very cheap. Check those brake lights before you go to a transmission shop that will tell you that you need $$$$$$ work done, - Visitor
My speedometer and rpm is working just fine. But my car stays in first gear. I can get all the way to 80mph but my cars is aking a funny noise as if it wants to shift but it can't does anyone knows...
Gear shift won't shift gears, but gear shift moves (slides) up & down. But I can shift it under the hood by moving the lever.
The car goes into gear but it won't shift gears. It jut idles.
