Question about 1999 Hyundai Accent

Cannot shift gears

I was shifting gears in my car a couple of days ago. There was a pop sound when I was putting it into reverse and from there I cannot get out of reverse from inside the car. When I pull on the linkage under the hood I can change the gears but I still cannot shift from inside the car. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Hi not 100% sure but sounds like your gear link selector has either worn or broken. it is probably best to see a mechanic to fix this problem as i had similar problem in a 98 accent saloon, and found this very difficult to do myself. hope this helps.

No Reverse and the fluid is dirty and smells funny.


Sounds like you blew out your reverse belt/gear in the transmission. Probably going to need a transmission rebuild/replacement.

I put a rebuilt transmission in a month ago and only really drove to the dump.i drove it around 60 miles with no problem.i went to drive it the following day and when i put it in reverse it makes a ginding...


transmissions are very vehicle specific, like it has to come out of the same year, same make and model, and have the same bolt patterns, also the gear ratios have to be the same. if the gear ratios are different you can take it to a transmission shop and they should be able to fix the ratio problem, although if it is grinding in reverse, that is the first sign to a bad transmission.

My car will not shift gears or go into reverse. HELP!


So I'm guessing that when you put it in reverse and it won't move. If you put it in 1st it moves but won't shift to 2nd? And it rattles. And since you have a 4.9 in it the transmission is a 4T60E. I am going to guess that you broke the reverse reaction shell in the transmission.

1995 camero z28. Transmission changes all gears smoothly including reverse. When I put it in park the car still rolls as if it is not in park. I thought I heard a pop a few days ago.


It sounds like there is an issue with either the shift cable or either the parking paw inside the transmission. You should be able to take to a local transmission shop for a quick diagnosis.

Have your transmission oil filter changed;
it is located under the transmission pan
The oil is what makes the transmission shift
When you shut off the engine it stops the transmission pump then when you start up again the transmission shifts until the filter clogs again
