Hi Welcome to
1988 Jaguar xj6 Trans does nothing.
Sounds like the limp mode rotary switch or the clutch switch on drivers side of tranny is defective.

Please give me a Fixya if I've helped you solve your problem! Thankyou !***&Category_Code=XJ40_Transmission_9

Transmission started slipping then lost all gears except reverse

Sounds like the gearbox needs rebuilding after refurbishing.

Not go forward reverse

is the transmission slipping in all gears? one cheaper thing to try is we all know changing the fluid, but with toyota it must be changed with toyota transmission fluid, not any other fluids that say it will work with toyota. go to dealer and get your fluid. also pick up the tranny filter. i know alot of times it is that simple. if you can do it your self? that would be best. sorry you can not trust to many mechanics out there.

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

1999 F250 only goes in reverse, no forward gears.

I believe that reverse is operated by a brake band. So it seems to be stuck. It is operated by a piston, and the seal could have swelled and caused too much friction. But you could loosen up the adjustor so that it is disengaged, in order to get forward gears again. Perhaps you can force the piston to retract as well, once you drop the pan again.
