There are many reasons for a car not properly shifting gears, and here are the main five reasons! First is that the level of transmission fluid is lower than needed for your vehicle. If it is lower then required there might be a leak, transmission fluid is of utmost importance to your vehicle to stay lubricated and functioning properly. A malfunctioning shift lock release in automatic transmission cars, when it is locked it fails to disengage properly, therefore not shifting, For your manual vehicles, a failed clutch master cylinder is uses to put the motion of the clutch pedal into the movement of a vehicle, when fluid is leaking into the system the car will fail to go into gear. In any transmission, manual or automatic, if there is a torn linkage wire the vehicle will not go into gear, this problem may not be able to be solved at home. The last issue that could cause improper gear shifting, is a bad torque converter in an automatic vehicle. Faulty pumps, stator, or the turbine in a torque converter will cause slipping. This then could block the transmission from shifting at all. All issues with gear slipping could be a major issue if not corrected immediately.
