How many miles? this sounds like a sticky valve body or a sticking shift solenoid, this assumes the trans is full? check the fluid, is it very dark or smell like bacon, then the fluid is worn out, if you are over 60,000 have the fluid and filter should be changed, sometimes this will cure the kind of problem you have, also a transmission code may be in the module, have Kragen auto run a test to see if there is a code, it is free

Maybe not shot, but not working either.
Its possible the filter was not installed properly, or something has happened to the pump.
Did you take it back to the shop ?

No reverse is the most classic symptom of a failed transmission. You must have the transmission rebuilt or replaced with a Motorcraft re-manufactured unit (my choice)

Transmission problem,no reverse and shift long from first to second gear,


Check to make sure you have fluid in the transmission up to the level it should be. If that is where it should be, the transmission needs to be replaced. When the transmission is slipping in reverse, it pretty much means the tranny is shot.

2000 Hyundai elantra transmission delay, reverse going


Did you check the transmission fluid level? If necessary, add fluid. However you probably have a more serious problem. Take the car to a qualified transmission mechanic.

Reverse light fuse blows when put into reverse


Unfortunately, many possibilities. If you have time, start by removing both reverse lamp sockets from light assembly(and keep from touching any metal), remove bulbs from sockets, CAREFULLY INSPECT sockets and wires. New fuse of correct rating. Turn key on and try again in reverse.
Fuse still blows: Next place to look is transmission reverse electrical switch and wiring as far as you can trace looking for burned/stripped wires near transmission and wires by sockets
Fuse doesn't blow: Turn key off and install one lamp in socket at a time. DO NOT install sockets into fixture at this time. Test. Remove first lamp to check second. If still O.K., each socket back into fixture(one at a time same as before)and test. Most common problems: Sockets contaminated, wires shorting at sockets, bulbs installed incorrectly shorting to ground.

Hi, I have a 1998 Chevy 3/4 ton 4x4, automatic transmission, has had problems for quite awhile shifting from second to third and now reverse is out. Shifting solenoid?


Hello, I see you are having a transmission problem. I sorry to be the bearer of bad news.It seems as though you may have already known it but the problem that you have had with second gear, could have been a servo bad but with reverse going out it may be the servo an band in the trans. It will need to be overhauled, in my opinion, since the transmission must now come out. Please rate my answer, Thank you.

No reverse in transmission


Sounds like the transmission is going. In my experience, reverse is usually the first gear to go.

You could try the reverse fix here:

Or if it turns out your valve body is bad, here is how to swap it:
Replacing the valve body of a Saturn TAAT Transaxle

DO NOT believe bad auto mechanics that tell you they need to swap your transmission!
