More detail reqDo you mean the engine will only run in park or neutral or the engine will only turn over and start in park and neutral?

it sounds like the neutral safety switch is bad or out of adjustment. If they use one and I dont know the location if that is the case.

Because there is an electrical short within the

neutral safety switch that is interrupting the ignition. When you're in a gear other than the two referenced, there is no spark as a result. Car dies.

It will only start in neutral because it was designed to only start in neutral. Why would anybody want start a vehicle while in gear?

If it is 4WD, put put the transfer case in Neutral, leave the automatic in Park or standard trans in gear. If it is 2WD, automatic would have to have driveshaft disconnect, standard trans just put in Neutral.

Anything is possible, but the cost would likely be outrageous.

The Porsche 918 Spyder is one of the only Porsche hybrids. It runs at $845,000. Another option is the Cayenne S Hybrid, at $69,000. Either option would be more environmentally friendly than a typical Porsche while still maintaining the flash and style of a traditional Porsche.

Not all do I would hope. It's something wrong with your gears most likely.

It is neutral. Molecules containing elements on opposite sides of the periodic table (basic elements and acidic elements) are neutral. Unless it's H because H is acidic by definition. So HCl would be a strong acid while NaCl or KCL would be neutral.

I am not sure what a Miami Alambo is, so I would probably drive a Porsche.

It can depend on which two you are comparing.BMW M1 V.S. Porsche 944.... BMW M1 would win.BMW M1 V.S. Porsche GT3.... Porsche GT3 would win.Porsche Cayenne (standard version) V.S. BMW M3 Comp Coupe... Comp Coupe would winCayenne V.S. x5.... Cayenne would win.

Cesium acetate would be mildly basic as the cesium ion is neutral while the acetate ion is a weak base.

Any Porsche 911. The best body kit would be the 959.

You would need to take the shift cable off at the transmission and move the lever manually.

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.

If you have a manual gearbox you should use neutral AND foot brake at traffic lights. If you have automatic you can leave it in Drive with your foot firmly on the foot brake. (Some instructors would tell you to move it to neutral and keep your foot on the foot brake.)

Because Ferdinand Porsche, the founder of Porsche had a Spanish mistress and they would meet at 9:11 at the back of the kitchen everyday.

The way to purchase a Porsche 911 would be to go to a local Porsche dealership and purchase it there. If the vehicle is not present, a person can order the vehicle at the dealership.

A car with an automatic transmission shifts itself from 1st to 2nd to 3rd when you accelerate. You don't need to shift it...that's why they call it automatic.

Came up to a stop light and when the light changed the car would not move.

Assuming we are talking automatic transmissions, you would use park or neutral to start the engine but neither one are gears.

A reliable source to a buy a used Porsche would be Copart, it has the best deals available for all types of cars, especially for Porsche, and from many countries. This is a place were you bid for a porsche that would normally cost about 25,000, and you could get it for about 15,000.

A place to purchase a Porsche Cayenne is at any Porsche dealership. Another place that would be able to sell a Porsche Cayenne is a car re-sale shop that sells used and refurbished cars.

as long as it's in neutral, yes, although i would not recommend doing so (forwards or backwards) for long periods/at high speeds if it's an automatic. its very rare, but i have heard of some transmissions "overheating" while being towed behind an RV.

Just make sure the gear stick is in neutral and the hand brake (parking brake) is on. Then try to jump start it as you would do with an automatic car.
