    mx63 problems.Help.

    hi i am new to this site and am wondering if anyone can help me. i have a 1984 cressida with an auto trans that will not go into gear at all no reverse drive 2nd or 1st. the guy i bought it from told me it was rebuilt which could be a lie.ive checked the fluid and its still bright pink/red i even took the shifter off and shifted into gear with the rod thats coming out of the trans but it still wont go. even with the car off it wont go into gear i can put it reverse and drive and push the car around like its in nuetral. im starting to think that its blown but i know these transmissions are electronicly controlled but all thats goin to it that i can see is grounds, the speedo cable and cooling lines....any suggestions will be appreciated thanks......
    ps..im going to be doing a 5 speed swap in a couple weeks but i really want to drive it now haha

    I wouldn't suspect the rebuild is a lie. I'd suspect whoever rebuilt it screwed something up. They don't normally do this in the natural course of events, especially if they've never been opened.

    even with the car off it wont go into gear i can put it reverse and drive and push the car around like its in nuetral.
    You can do that with almost every automatic ever made. :wink:

    They are not electronically controlled. The O/D is electric but the rest of the functions are hydraulic/mechanical.

    any suggestions will be appreciated thanks......

    My best suggestion would be to do the 5spd swap now. No point in spending a bunch of money and effort on something you're going to change anyway. :tu:

    ya i know im just getting impatient waiting on my tax return. i really want to just drive it thanks for the help tho oh and just real quik could it be the neutral switch because its really hard to get the car to start i have to put it in neutral and then slightly pull back on the shifter and then it will start and it wont start in park either.

    Well the neutral safety switch might be screwed up but it would only prevent the car from starting. It doesn't explain the other issues with your trans. My advice is to start pulling it out so your 5MT can slide right in when it arrives. You might have to dremel out a pilot bushing or something.

    You should be able to use a bushing/bearing puller or slide hammer but sometimes it's really jammed in there. Then it's time to break out the dremel.
