If you can't physically shift the vehicle into drive, then the linkage going to the transmission may be binding up. If you can shift the gear selector into drive, but the vehicle won't move forward, then you may be very low on fluid. Many times when a transmission gets very low, it will only move in reverse and not forward in any gear. Check the fluid level and top it off if it is low. If the transmission is already full, then you may have more serious damage that may require a trans shop.
A car that won't move when in reverse could indicate a problem with the transmission. It could also indicate a problem in the gear selector.
it will drive but when in reverse it wont move
If you have an automatic transmission, it probably has a forward clutch/band problem.
I have a 2001 Mercury Cougar it goes in reverse and first and second but it wont go in drive when i put it in drive the rpm just go up.
check your transmission fluid level. If it's low, then reverse goes out first. If that doesn't do it, you may need to take it to a transmission shop..
does it shift into reverse and wont drive? if so its your tranny it needs to be replaced
For the Reverse problem, you could have low transmission fluid, or a bad transmission. For starting in drive, just about every modern car will not start when the transmission is in gear. They will only start in Park or Neutral. This is a safety feature to prevent the car from taking off into someone or something when started.

You are probably low on transmission fluids
You blew your transmission, took out the reverse gear. You'll have to take it to a tranny shop and get it rebuilt (not cheap), or replace it yourself with one from a scrap yard. ($600 in parts, a weekend to do it)
Your 2000 Ford Contour cannot reverse because of a transmission failure problem.
pres the brake until it moves
this is a typical problem with berettas, for some reason the bands in the transmission will not hold out after several miles are on the car, have the bands tightened or replaced, and you wont have any more problems
It needs to be in park or neutral to start. All cars have a "safety" switch which prevents starting in gear.
I have the same problem with my 92 Mazda 626, have Not found a solution yet.
The transmission is messed up, try playing between neutral/reverse and drive, my old Hyundai excel did that and the transmission did a weird sound then went back OK, but not for long. Recommended to change it.
mine started doing this today. ill tow it to the shop for the 5th time. ill let you know what the problem was (is) lol.
There could be several things wrong with the 2006 Taurus. The car may need transmission fluid or even a new transmission.
If your 1997 Ford Taurus won't go into reverse, there may be a problem with your transmission. You can try checking your levels, but you need to take it to a mechanic.
Check your relay under the dash. My 1991 JCB did the opposite and that is what the problem was.
Best guess, your Transmission is shot. You'll need to call a mechanic and tow it to the shop to get it checked out
my Chevy silvarado with 350 trany will go in reverse but not in forward gears checked fluid levels by pulling pan only 1/2 quart in bottom of pan added 6 quarts is this enough ?
I just read another persons witing on another site about this. He was having the same problem I am with his Pathfinder. We all wont go in reverse. His turned out to be the solenoids.
