Question about 2003 Chevrolet Malibu

Car will go backwards, just not forward

Yesterday my husband was driving along, slowed to a stop to turn left and then nothing. Our car no longer drives forward in any gear. We can drive in reverse though, unfortunately it isnt' legal to do so. Is there any chance that this isn't the tranmission?

This sounds strange . you need to go to a trans shop and that is all they do is trans and have them look alot of times these can be fixed for a fraction of the cost of replacement

Can not back up or even push it backwards in neutral running or not.


The right rear brake on my Granddaughters car was so worn that the pad jammed when turning backwards stopping any backwards motion. When going forward it did not jam and could be pushed or driven forward. Tell everyone that if you hear scraping noises when applying brakes to get them checked right away.

1996 Rodeo Isuzu - I put it in Winter Drive and now 1 rear wheel


Based on another similar problem and it was fixed driving backwards, that's exactly what I did. I drove the Rodeo backwards and then would stop and put it in gear and did this for 10 minutes until I worked the 4x4 gear loose and now all four wheels run. I must say, I created quite a sight driving backwards in a Wal-Green's parking lot for 10 minutes.

Car stops moving in reverse gear


Sounds like the car is just slipping out of gear. Keep your hand on the shifter when you back up next time. See if you can feel the shifter move when the car comes out of gear. If the shifter moves up when it happens keep pressure on the shifter holding it back like you dont want it to move forward. And of course if the shifter moves back when it comes out of gear, put forward pressure on the shifter so it doesnt slip out. This might work for now but but i know i wouldnt want to spen 700 for that ****. Let me know how it goes.
