Is the shifter stuck?

Is it stuck in park?Have you tried this? If you cannot move the gearshift lever out of P (Park) with the ignition in the ON position and the [brake](/topics-brake-ford/) pedal depressed: 1) Apply the parking brake, turn the ignition key to LOCK, then remove the key. 2) Insert the key and turn it to OFF. Apply the brake pedal and shift to neutral

The Gear shifts well in drive mode the car doesn't move only moves on return

If it does Not engage in Drive a ine pressure test should be Performed with live data or a hand held gauge.. If forward and reverse is lost its usually a pump or torq converter failure
