FORD F150 rolls in park

ive searched before asking but no dice i have a 97 f150 4x4 auto w84k miles. i have been parking on hills lately(average hilly streets) when i put the truck in park it rolls until i put the brakes on. it does this in forward and reverse. i tried jockeying the shift lever to make sure its in park to no avail. the truck shifts and drives perfect and has full (looks) fresh fluid. any ideas just called the dealer and they said there were no outstanding recalls on this truck.

The tranny shouldnt be used to hold you on a hill anyways. 1) Put the vehicle in the desired spot. Turn wheels away from curb on uphill toward curb on downhill. 2) With the vehicle still in gear being held by brake pedal engage parking Brake. 3) Shift into Nuetral and remove foot from brake pedal. 4) Shift into park parking on a slight hill without using the parking Brake means the Auto transmission is holding the vehicle in place. When a vehicle in this situation is put back into gear the shift is usually accompanied by a large BANG . Too many bangs and there aint nothin left to hold nothin. Using steps 1 thru 4 mean The parking Brake is only thing holding the vehicle. This is accomplished by shifting into Nuetral(eliminates the tranny) and taking your foot off the brake pedal (eliminates the brakes) The transmission in park is then the second line of defense in the event of parking brake failure. The tires into the curb is the third line of defense after the parking Brake and Transmission. This is how Ive always done it so I have never known whether any auto transmission Ive ever owned would hold on a hill or not. If the truck rolls in park on even slight inclines something has to be fixed eventually.

KIA CARENS Thump shifting to park

Hello everyone we puchased an 08 rondo lx over the summer. We just hit the 3000 mile service last week. Today while putting it in park I heard what sounded like a thump.

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE Clunk when shifting to reverse on a hill

My WJ makes a clunk sound when shifting into reverse on a hill after stopping. Not really after stopping Put it in park...it rolls forward after the brakes are released...press brakes shift to reverse...CLUNK. If when in reverse I keep the brakes down and move to park then back to reverse...no clunk. Im guessing it has something to do with the way the transbrake works

BMW X5 E70 6 speed transmission weird behavior

Most noticeable when Im doing the parking maneuver sometimes when I shift between drive reverse or park the car suddenly gains momentum to go forward as if something has bumped into the vehicle and is pushing it from behind. Its sort of like shifting into gear when the engines rpm is higher than the idle rpm. And its also like shifting into park on an incline without the sidebrake. Even on a perfectly

BMW X3 F25 My long road to the X3

after almost four months of research test drives and discussions with my wife I am finally ordering an X3 and thought Id share my long and meandering tale. It started six months ago in the fast lane of Highway 101. A woman text-messaging in a Mercedes slammed into my wife during her daily commute. Our Honda Element was sandwiched between two cars and my wife was unharmed but catatonic. This was the

She doesnt even want to drive it. Somehow during all the test drives the car she loved two months ago had become pondering and obscene. The BMW dealer is two blocks away. On our walk over she complains about the BMW. I tell her about the variable suspension and she says its a gimmick. I tell her about the engine choices and she says she only wants to try the 28i. I mention normalsport and she rolls

JEEP WRANGLER III JK My 2012 Test Drive

I think I have a slightly different spin on the 3.6 than some others. I thought it was a night and day difference. I drove a Unlimited Sport Auto for the afternoon. Ive owned 3 JKs and 2 were autos and Im currently driving an 09 6sp Unlimited Rubi. Guess my point is Ive spent seat time in both autos and manuals in the JKs. Just as a refresher I took out a 2011 Unlimited Sahara auto with 3.73s so I
