Customer Question
2014 F150 - Tried...

2014 F150 - Tried to shift out of 4wd to 2wd, it says "shift delayed, pull forward", but truck won't move. Putting in gear, engine revs, but never engages.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you noticed any leaking?

Transmission is original, 2014. I haven't noticed any leaking.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I've only tried getting it in gear and pushing it forward with another vehicle. It won't even shift into neutral.

The shitter isn't physically stuck, but it seems to be stuck in drive although it won't move. It's parked on a hill and doesn't roll when put in neutral.

When you move the shifter does it seem to move to freely no longer having the resistance it used to?

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
