Tonight I found the gear shift in my 2010 Ford had become stuck in park and I asked my stepdad to come look. It worked almost fine this morning. We found that the transmission fluid had completely leaked. The truck has 90,000 miles. What are the odds that the transmission is destroyed?

The ATF level has nothing to do with the shift lever coming out of Park.
Turn the key to the ON position with out starting the motor. Press down the brake pedal. If the shift lever won't move you either have a bad brake light switch or a bad lock out solenoid for the shift lever. If you drove the truck home there should be ATF in the tranny. You do know that the ATF has to be checked with the motor running?! If you check it with the motor off there won't be any ATF on the dipstick. Don't overfill it.Source(s): Mitsubishi Master Tech

If it worked this morning and you got more fluid in it, should be OK

Fix the leak, refill the transmission and see if it works- probably will.

Service the fluid and see what happens. We can only guess. The transmission is likely shot.
