Your '01 Lincoln Town car might not shift gears because it is low on transmission fluid or because the transmission is damaged.
Odds are the clutch is in need of a adjustment or replacement.
it could be the shift linkage being that both gears over there wont work
If it won't shift in all the gears.
In the car there's a small hole by the shift gears, take cover off, we used a metal nail file To press down, this now lets you shift gears.
i have a 92 s-10 blazer and it has no reverse Andy ideas?. it will go in to drive and shift in to all the gears..but will no go into reverse? can u help me
Sounds like a problem with the idler gear in between the reverse gear and the layshaft.
if it was automatic it had a torqueflite tranny and had 3 forward gears and a reverse and if stick shift you had either a 3 speed tranny (rare) or a 4 speed.
It depends on the make and model. Some have a toe shifter like a motorcycle that is operated with the left foot. Other models have buttons on the handle bar that shifts gears electrically. Still other, newer ones are shiftless. You put it in high, low or reverse, and no shifting is required.
check the transaxle range switch and positioning....the holes should line up in neutral
Your truck may not shift gears because the transmission sensor is damaged or broken. It also may not shift gears because the transmission or linkage is damaged.
my merucry mystique dont shift gears fast
Hey K==It will start grinding in reverse and hard to shift in foreward gears. GoodluckJoe
Automatic cars offer drivers much greater convenience as they no longer have to manually clutch in to shift gears. Most automatic cars available come with 4 gears, plus an additional reverse gear.
Throwout bearing, bent/cracked clutch fork, and Poor clutch pressure are other potential causes. Transmission failure. Broken gears or transmission parts have become wedged in the path to the reverse gear. Rebuild transmission.
Align the shift indicator orreplace it. Your problem is strictly column mechanical.
If it still has a reverse, just in the wrong place, then the linkage or cable from the shift lever to the transmission has streched or fallen out of alignment.
Check your fuses
Just like any other motorcycle. Push the lever up, you shift up....push the level down, you shift down. The shift lever is located by your left feet. The gears are as follows: 1 - N - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 Hope this helps.
Yes/No, because if it is parked in reverse, the back wheels would be dragging, and soon shift gears (If repossessed by a chain truck), but if it is a flatbed tow truck, then yes, it can be repossessed, because the back wheels would not be dragging, therefor the wheels would not shift gears and ruin the vehicle, or reverse of of the truck!Why are you asking, has your car bin repossessedbefore?-Zachary T.

Can you shift gears? IF you can its at least working. I guess your question means the opposite. So if you feel slippage when shifting gears or cannot operate in one gear (reverse, for example), the transmission is about to give out.
H pattern for the first 4 gears to the right and up for fifth, and push down -go left and up for reverse.
the only problem that you can repair yourself would be with the linkage. but if all other gears work except reverse then the problem is probably internal and should be inspected by a professional. it makes a big difference if the trans. is manual or automatic also.
Can you use park, neutral, or reverse? If so then your tranny is in limp mode. The only gears that work are 2nd and reverse. Check the cable to your tranny and see if it is plugged all the way in. If it is then you have other electrical problems and need to have your truck looked at. I'm not sure if an 89 still has a vacuum modulator on it or not. If the vacuum line to it is off it will only shift after over revving it. Can you shift it manually? Start in low and shift at the proper RPM?
shift to nutral,then move lever to reverse
