Car not going into gear

Asked by Mar 02, 2018 at 08:56 AM about the 1999 Mercury Sable

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We have a 99 mercury sable with only 60,000 mikes in it.  
It was driving fine when all of a sudden it won’t go into
gear.  We can shift the gear to drive but when we hit the
gas it goes no where help?

You need to find out if it is an actual tranny problem or an electronics problem, have a good tranny shop check it, they can plug in and run stand alone tests to determine what has failed.
