Van is 6L 2009 with only 35k on it and today he quit going anywhere. Started fine, backed up fine, did little hill and onto the driveway fine, coasted down 1/4 mile long driveway to right hand bend and put foot on fuel pedal and listened to the engine rev. WTF??? Would not go anywhere but engine was running. Seems to have gotten into neutral and would not go into any drive or reverse gear. Would not even go into Park.
Moved shift lever through the range and felt and heard grinding noise in the shift column. Also noted but forgot to tell the dealer that when I moved to the Park position, the RPMs moved to zero. When I moved it to a drive gear position, the RPMs went back to the normal at idle. Electronic in nature I suspect but I am pertaining no mechanic. Had to call for a tow and he is now down at the local Ford dealer getting a look-see.
Any ideas on this one? Sure glad it didn't happen some place like the Maze, Death Valley or something.
