Hello. My name is ***** ***** I am happy to assist you today. Give me just a moment to review your post, and I'll be right back with the help you need.

The most common cause for the type of problem you are having on your Sable is in most cases caused by an internal failure of the transmission and the common part to fail is the front pump. This usually happens with no warning as well . The PCM (computer) can't cause the transmission to neutralize, but can cause shifting problems. Unfortunately if you have no movement then your looking at a tear down and inspection usually resulting in a replacement and or an overhaul.
