The fist thing you can/must check is the auto transmission oil level ? als the colour? it should be red not a brown colour as this indicates overdue for changing as part of routine servicing ? if you check your hand book ? it will explain how to check level of trans auto oil come back to board with findings or if this above is problem? or not ?

Hmmm, Seems like one of two things
1- Transmission gearing going bad, talk to AAMCO they can rebuild auto tranny's for about a grand or so.
2-torque converter has lost it, but that would also affect reverse.

I have a 1998 holden jackaroo SE automatic petrol car and it starts,reverse but when u put it in drive it doesn't drive if you press on the winter drive it goes so what's causing the problem?


Get a trained person to check the transmission. If it goes backwards but only goes forward in winter mode then there is a trans fault because auto's generally pull away in 2nd gear in winter mode to reduce wheelspin.

V70 poured new Dex3 auto trans in. Reverse gear stops working after a few days equal 500km, but all forward are still ok.


Sounds like your transmission is going bad. If your transmission is slipping only in drive or forward gears, then it could be just that it is low on fluid, but when reverse starts to slip it usually means rebuild/replace transmission.

Good luck

I have a 1998 Oldsmobile Bravada auto trans drive works fine but no reverse


Are you sure you have all 4 forward gears? Most of the time a no reverse condition also means 1st and 3rd only.No 2nd or 4th.If you dont have all the forward gears as i suspect , the reaction shell is stripped or broken.If you do have all the forward gears then these are the two most common reasons you do not have reverse.1 reverse input clutches are damaged or burnt 2 forward cltches have slipped to the point they are welded together causing a mechanical bind in reverse and also causing the transmission to pull forward in neutral.Let me know if i can help.Good Luck.

All forward gears work excep the reverse any ideas?


It sounds like you have the Auto box and in it you have 2 bands 1 is the forward and the other one is the Reverse ,so if your forward gears are working ok then the fluids ok so its either the reverse Pump or the Band which drives the reverse gear is worn or buggered .
So your answer is to go to the AUTO MATIC shop and get them to check it out{ IT MIGHT BE THEY CAN ADJUST IT IN TIME IF NOT TO BAD}. AND THAT WILL SAVE YOU A LOT OF MONEY.

98 vw beetle wont go in reverse


I have a 1998 and I just confronted the same problem. It seems to take like 1 gear in reserve and like 2 gear in 1 gear. Any thoughts? I don't really it should be the transmission since it still works going forward in 2 different gears. Thanks.

No reverse


U are going to have to have the trans torn down and replace the reverse clutch drum.

Transmission


Transmission model is 4L60E,and the symptoms you are describing is a common failure on these transmissions all the way back to it's predecesor,the 700 R 4 model.The reverse input shell,splines into the low/reverse planetary sun gear.The reverse input shell has a collar with splines made into it,and these splines are prone to stripping,and sometimes the collar itself will break free from the shell.Without the shell functioning,no reverse,and this is likely what you are hearing.Aftermarket companies sell heavy duty,and standard duty,replacements.Eventually,you will lose the forward gears also.Good luck.
