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).

We borrowed our daughter's Hyundai Santa Fe to make a trip to the mountains on a 105 degree day. It was doing great on mountain highways until we stopped after about 3 hours.

May be a bad fan or thermal switch not working. The a/c condenser sits in front of the radiator. It may be that the load on the engine going up the mountain is too much for just the air blowing across it to keep it cool, and the car shuts the a/c off to try and keep engine temp down. Cruising along on level ground is enough to keep things cool. Going up the mountain means more engine heat and probably reduced speed, which reduces air flow, especially if a fan isn't working.
Let car cool off, start engine and let it warm up without driving. Monitor temp and fans. When temp gets about normal, look for fan to kick on. Then when turning on a/c, look for the other fan to kick on. Don't let engine overheat. If one or both fans don't come on, start there. Check fan motor not locked up, relay working, fuse/wiring good.

Our 4x4 Dodge ram 1500 is running rough after we replaced a busted radiator. It gave out code p304 and p2503. My husband took off all the coils and battery connections and cleaned them and dried them.

P0304 Code Cylinder 4 Misfire
The p2503 code is - charging system low output. If the engine ran ok before the radiator blew, then components and wire are probably still wet or moist. Especially with cylinder #4 , take off spark plug wire from spark and from coil and dry out the inside of the boots. Also, try blowing the alternator dry with a hair drier.

Car was overheating...replaced water pump, radiator and hoses. Got car from shop and had hugh white clouds following me home. Drove home and immedeately parked it. Started it every other day for 2 weeks...


I am sorry to say it looks like you have blown a head gasket. What happen is when it was overheating, it was maybe because the water pump of course was not providing water/antifreeze to the motor. Now of course that is why you took it to the shop to have water pump replaced, radiator and hoses and etc. Maybe just Maybe the thermostat could of been the original problem that cause the overheating to begin with, however that is pass tense now.

When there is white smoke pouring out the back, especially with the prior problem with the over heating, it most likely warped your head, which of course cause a leak at the head gasket. Now, the load thump or pop you hook under hood, could be because the head gasket is blown possible now threw a rod, or piston. I do not want to scare you and tell you a lot of stuff that you don't want to hear, but it will be expensive to fix if you blew a head gasket and threw a rod, or piston. Best thing to do, is i hate to say it, is get it into the shop. Yes, it would have to be towed. Unless you have a real good shop near by or good friend that is mechanically inclined to verify my diagnosis.

My 98 Cavalier overheated the other day so we stopped on the side of the road to let it cool down but when we tried starting it up again it wouldn't. So we towed it back home to check it. It seems that...

Hopefully its just a hose and the oil was from a small leak. The engine oil mixed in is pretty scary so i wish you the best and hope you wont have to go shopping for a new engine...

2003 pt cruiser overheating

It sounds like both problems are related. Possible that you have an intermitent problem with the cooling fan on the radiator? When it overheats are you in town at slow speeds or out on the road moving above 50?

you probably busted a transmision line...not a big deal if you have the proper tools you can tackle it yourself if not take it to the shop it will be about$100 for the line $100 shop labour and aboul $40 in trans fluid
