        • Q:

          My car (a 95 mercury tracer 1.9 auto) will shift fine, however it starts off in 1st then shifts to 3rd. It skips 2nd and won't shift into overdrive. The trans does not slip or anything weird. Could it be the neutral safety switch on top of the trans, where the shifting linkage is?

            I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

        • Q:

          my car sometimes starts fine, but sometimes the starter gear only hit the flywheel and does not turn as if the transmission is locked. brand new starter, brand new battery.

          could it be the safety neutral switch????

          any advice welcomed.

            Unfortunately we are unable to diagnose what is wrong with your vehicle without being able to be there with your vehicle. We highly recommend taking your vehicle to a reputable shop to have them take a look at it to determine the cause.

        • Q:

          I lost brake pressure and had to shift the car into reverse then park to keep from hitting the garage door.
          Car was running fine after I got it stopped.
          I turned it off to clean-up then tried to start it and it would trun over but would not start.
          Could I have damaged the Neutral safety switch?

            The neutral safety switch is normally located on the steering column where the column meets the floorboard.

            This is mounted on the top of the transmission under the air box on the shift linkage arm.
