Cant find my reverce 1997 caviler


Check your owners manual for the correct shift pastern...It is a natural H pattern, with 5th gear upper right...reverse should be all the way to the right and lower right to engage...the knob does not always indicate the correct pattern...may have been changed...also be sure it is a 5 speed...most of these Cavaliers were 4 speeds...with reverse being upper right instead of 5th gear upper right...confirm in your owners manual if possible...will show illustration...Hope this helps.

'06 Frontier XE manual trans.Cruise control will not stay engaged when in 5th gear.


Changing the ratio could be causing the computer to miscalculate the speed. Try ruling out the sensors (by seeing if it stays engaged while in fourth gear.)

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan will not shif into 2nd


Most likely the second gear section of the transmission has gone bad. There are 3 or 4 different gear sections or assemblies in an automatic transmission, when they go bad, they go bad.

Just recently a light in the shape of a straigt ahead arrow appears in the right dash, just in gear positions 1-4, not 5. Is this a shift light that has just started appearing?


im assuming this is a five speed manual transmission. In this case,YES this is a shift light, this light is supposed to appear when you should shift the car,its supposed to help with gas mileage,and engine performance when you shift at the indicated point.Does it really make that much of a difference? NO. You usually can tell just by listening to your motor, to know the proper time to shift. I had one of these too! More annoying than anything! Dale
