What happened? My Car will not drive forward or reverse, front wheels are now locked, can't even push it.


This is a transmission related issue. If the vehicle starts but will not go in any gear you have an intrernal tranny problem. Will it move at all in neutral? Check and see if the trans fluid is at the proper level. I believe these transmissions are just drain and fill ( no filter change ) during fluid service. If the fluid level is correct and a good color, the internal differential may have come apart causing the lock up situation. If the fluid level is low ( suspect a leak especially after a service ) and low fluid will cause a no shift/drive issue

1998 toyota celica ttransmission when cold shifts ok. After warming shifts like over drive goes on and off and looses reverse


When a transmission is hot is usually when the problems are noticed. Is the fluid level low? Is it brown or black in color? Does it smell burnt? These are all indications of a problem - some worse than others. If topping off to the correct level, you may have more serious issues. You might want to have the fluid / filter serviced or changed if it has been a while - but a well neglected transmission will not likely come back to life by doing the fluid and filter service. Good luck!

Transmission


At idle and the vehicle in nuetral check your transmission fluid level. If it is low your will need to add ford only transmission fluid which will come in a variety of manufactures. Don't use the multi vehicle fluid. You will then need to see where it is leaking from. If the fluid level is good look at the color of the fluid on the stick. if it is brown that means it is burnt and probably need a transmission.

I have reverse but no drive has a whinnig sound when cold 2001 ford escape v6 4wd


have you checked your transmission fluid on the dipstick under the hood? if so,then it should be full. look at the dipstick carefully to see the full level make sure if have to add fluid to the transmission that it is fomoco transmission fluid.if you have any doubt about the product,get a sales tech to show you which fluid you need for a ford transmission.there is a difference in the fluid.the whining sound you hear is from the transmission,you may have a leak.check where the vehicles parked for fluid on the ground,it will be red in color.if you do not see red fluid on the ground and the transmission is full of fluid,please repost your question with all the above information,such as full of fluid and reverse only. you may have a leak,which if fluids on the ground will tell you that much.but if it's full of fluid,then that's a different issue altogether.hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com.

No reverse gear


Your transmission is shot! Could be many different components inside the transmission. Start by checking your transmission fluid. check it with the car idling in park. look for a dark color or burnt odor. the fluid should be a light red color. You will have to go see a transmission specialist to get a few diagnostic tests done first, modern transmissions are extremely complex items and many special tools are required, this work is usually well beyond the home mechanic to attempt.-----------

When in reverse before it goes it jumps and also at 3 rpm's it jumps then goes


What you're describing is hard shift-shock. Its a symptom of old transmission fluid, or a transmission fluid leak, causing an empty transmission. Don't drive your car til you check the transmission fluid level, and change it if it's dark-looking.

No reverse willnot select reverse, auto, and are the engines free spinning ?


check your transmission fluid.....if possible use a transmission additive to try and solve this....or top up with transmission fluid as required...check for leaks under your car of colored oil..usually red...you could have a leak and losing transmission fluid...if so top up with a sealant fluid for transmissions...this usually works for small leaks...you have to drive about 30kms to get the fluids to circulate...for the seal to work..

Transmission only goes in reverse


make sure check transmission for proper fluid level and color.if fluid looks black or smell burnt.change fluid and filter.check manual linkage for proper adjustment.if all is good.your transmission oil pump bad or the over drive unit has damage roller clutch.or the forward clutch has burned clutch plates and damage pistons and seals.you probably need to buy another transmission or get an overhaul.
