Like to find out why transmission will shift in reverse and first but not drive and second will not move in Drive and second gears 1976 Motorhome will drive in reverse and first gear


Because 2nd and third gears use a different clutch pack than first and reverse. It sounds like the 2nd and third clutches are gone.

My son has a '91 Pulsar, 5 door hatch. When he changes into reverse, the gear "grates", we beleive the clutch needs to be adjusted, is this correct? (he has no bother with any other gear...


When the engine is idling and the gear box selector is in Neutral all the internals of the gearbox are rotating. Pushing in the Clutch disconnects the drive from the engine to the gearbox but it takes a few seconds for the gears in the box to cease rotating. All the forward gears have synchromesh so there will be no crunching noise ifa forward gear is selected immediately the clutch is pushed in before allowing the gears to stop spinning. On the other hand Reverse has No synchros and therefore selecting reverse before waiting a few seconds for the gears to stop spinning will produce the crunching noise you have described.
So it pays to wait a second or two after pushing in clutch before Reverse is selected to minimise the crunch and if the clutch appears to be working correctly in normal driving ,then no adjustment is necessary.

My transmission slips going through second gear if i get my foot in it just a little bit, and it doesnt always go into reverse. if i shift into reverse and it doesnt shift, i have to shift to neutral then...


this problem is a common failure associated with your shift solenoinds inside your tranny. of course a shop is not gonna tell you this because by the time you wanna get it repaired it is usually too late and have already cause damage to your clutch pack and internal parts, thats the main reason why a shop wont mess with just replacing your shift solenoid (aka valve bodie)

01 suburban 1500 4x4 auto, no reverse or second gear, skips right to third, little trans noise in p,r,n then goes away in drive thanks mark


sounds mechanical. No reverse and no lower gears. If it were an electrical or computer control issue would default to second gear and still have reverse. Sorry, but I think you will have to pull the tranny on this one.
Good luck.

Crunching Gears


thats common for the reverse gear to grind if you go right for it i always go to fist then reverse. it sounds like you might have a week slave cylinder and the pressure is to low to go into a high gear does this happen in 5 th also or only 3 rd?

Auto tranny slipping after shifting out of second


Firstly is it slow for reverse, reverse clutch also engages in 3rd gear however reverse has a boosted circuit (more psi) therefore will engage rev but not 3rd but it is a little slow for reverse.
They do have a tendancy to pop a ball out of the High and reverse clutch giving this symptom.

VW Golf 3 jumping out of gears


Sounds like a stripped reverse gear. And for the second gear probally need a new gear (1st 2nd) and the syncros with a new hub. If too much metal from the gears has already made it's way around in the bearings through the transmission oil you might be looking at a new transmission. The Golf 3 generation had many problems with reverse gears. Sorry to be the one to tell you.
