2003 Ford Taurus Transmission won't engage.

Transmission problem
2003 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles

One night after diving my car though town I went to park it for the night. The next morning when I was leaving for work it wouldn't engage into any gears but park. It has not given me any indications of problems before this happened. When I try to put it in to gear it bogs the motor down slightly then revs back up after a few seconds but will not move. When its in any of the gears it will move freely when pushed and will lock down when in park. I had a friend tell me to check "the sensor". Any ideas?

Do you
have the same problem?

Sorry it sound as internal tranny failure,
if its locking at park and free to push in all gears
I would suspect tranny failure.

All u can do is check fluid, &
you can check the shifter cable and link
and scan for codes
I do NOT believe a sensor will stop it from moving
it may stop it from shifting up !

Good luck

Was this
