My 4runner won't go in reverse

Had problem going over a mountain pass, my ******* overheated and blew ******* fluid everywhere. Towed it to a shop, and they cleaned my fan and it worked for a while. Now Im having trouble getting it into reverse. One mechanic said it was probably my transmission:( Hoping to look for other solutions before I call it a loss. Anyone else with this problem?

Your shell in your transmission is probably stripped or your piston is stuck in transmission cause it not go in reverse easy way to tell if its transmission is to smell your fluid and see if it smells burnt.

SOURCE: transmission won`t go into reverse

Does the Check Engine light come ON when this happens? Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. Once you do this and let us know what, if any codes are set, then we can go from there. The problem you describe could simply be a wiring/connection problem -- no telling at this point. Now, having written that, my suspicion is the LR (Low/Reverse) clutch or the solenoid (hopfully, just the solenoid).

I have a 1998 4wd automatic toyota 4runner and it won't start. The engine turns but won't "ignite" the engine light and A/T oil temp light appear on dashboard. any suggestions on what to check


Hi Nikki, What oil was low? Was it engine oil or gear box oil? Did the engine overheat? what exactly happened? Did you hear any strange noises when the engine stopped? Was the vehicle towed or was it on the back of a recovery vehicle? If it was towed, at what speed and over what distance? What engine is fitted? Is it petrol or diesel powered? Give as many details as possible to help us help you. Regards John

In general terms, you may have blown a head gasket when it overheated. If the engine cranks but won't start you may not have enough compression because of the head gasket.
A mechanic would check the compression with a gauge.

2007 nissan altima won't go in reverse or drive


Hi,
It starts and runs OK, correct?

Check your fluid level - Directions in the Owner's Manual.

Are you pushing the brake pedal b4 trying to move the lever (sorry, have to ask)?

Does the lever move @ all? Into Neutral?

Is the Check Engine Light on?

Sounds like you'll need to have it towed to a shop. Call the Better Business Bureau for a reference, or recommendations from family/friends.

Windows won't raise up in my 2001 Mercury Mountaineer due to bad fuse


That is a lot of don't knows


That tells me your better off at a repair shop

Why not check all the fuses

If one blew,it will blow again, until you
fix the real problem

If one window works, it won't be a fuse

The most common would be a window
switch you use the most,followed by a window
regulator,then a fail motor.

You should have an owners manual for
all your vehicles to look up fuses & lamps

Helm.Com --is where you go for a Ford & other
make manuals

Jeep was overheating, Now leaking transmision fluid and won't start


I don't see how leaking transmission fluid would be connected to the engine overheating, unless the radiator blew up.
You'll need to figure out why it won't start to proceed.
Check for spark and fuel pressure, and of course compression.
Is the check engine light on ?

Hello, This is a tough problem to find when there are no Diagnostics. I suspect the problem is due to a term called "Heat Sink"

What this term means is that the engine compartment is getting hotter when the engine is just shut off, than when it is running. When the Tow truck moved your car, wind passed by while the Tow truck moved your vehicle. This helped cool it off regardless of when the car was towed.

A lot of times the heat shields on the Catalytic converters are rusted off. In a pursuit vehicle, they could have been knocked off. This means someone needs to look under your car to see what is missing.

The electric components like the Ignition module, coil, Relays, and fuel lines can be overheating.

Try opening your hood when you park your car at home and then go out shortly afterwards and try starting the car. If it helps, you need to find the component that is overheating and replace any missing heat shields.

I hope my solution is very helpful. You can also get FREE scans at Autozne, Advance, and Oreillys autoparts when you get a Code light.
