Generally shifting from reverse to drive, while still rolling, is possible but not recommended. This places a lot of stress on the transmission and other components of the drive train.
are you pressing the brake as you try to shift?
does it shift into reverse and wont drive? if so its your tranny it needs to be replaced
Park, reverse, neutral, Drive and low
Not sure of the question, but if your car is less than 7 yrs old, apply the brake first, then you can move the shift selector.
Shift linkage broken or misadjusted?
Shift it on 2H, then "REVERSE" for about 10 to 15 Feet....
sounds like the auto transmission has a fault
my 2002 ford escape sensor is misfiring and it won't shift into drive
Sounds like a torque converter lock up solenoid.
This is called a J turn. Look it up on youtube for instructions on executing one.
