Or The Motor/Transmission Mounts Which I Just Replaced
You Can Check This By Putting It In Gear With The Hood Up See If That ****** Jumps. You Can Get Them On Ebay For Like 60 Bucks. Thats A Steal Just Call Around. One More Convincing Thing The Motor Mounts Only Last For About 10 years.

Happy Fixing
Sincerely,
Michael Scott

There are two predominant possible problems , firstly the rear brake shoes can have come loose jamming when reversing , rather a common problem . Or the gearbox could be on the way out .

The car will not back up out of my steep driveway it kicks into reverse. But does not move. All other gears are just fine.


You mean it kicks OUT OF reverse? You put it in revere, go to move and it jumps out of reverse.

You need a new gearbox, a refurbished gearbox or yours repairing. Reverse is always the one that is the problem.

97 buick century was running after jump started, when put in reverse it died and wont start when jump start, no chimes or lights come on at all


Dangerous practice to try & jump a near dead battery

Always try charging a battery, that is only a couple years
old & not run down more than two or three times

If the battery is dead & reads less than 12 volts, have a parts
store test it or just replace it.

Jumping a cars battery is not a fix for anything,so I fail to
see how your lost & have not addressed the battery issue,
so you can continue on with other testing,if needed

Golf battery polarity


reversed polarity,check fuses. check the system for burnt wires also !
Always hook up your battery terminals correctly, as the alternator may be damaged if the battery is hooked up backward. jump start car, if it will. there should be at least 13.7 to 14.2 volts at battery posts while its running. if alternator is ok.

I had jump started my vehicle this winter and it had blown the disc changer.the disc s will no longer eject ,play etc.the manual i have is in french. how can i fix this problem?


sounds like you blew out the disc changer. Jumping a car can cause this occasionally, or reversing the terminals on your battery while jumping will cause the batter not to work, and can blow fuses and/or ruin electronic equipment. You most likely need to remove the cd changer and have it replaced. Sometimes you can open the circuit boards of the changer and manually fix it, but that does not always work.

VW Golf 3 jumping out of gears


Sounds like a stripped reverse gear. And for the second gear probally need a new gear (1st 2nd) and the syncros with a new hub. If too much metal from the gears has already made it's way around in the bearings through the transmission oil you might be looking at a new transmission. The Golf 3 generation had many problems with reverse gears. Sorry to be the one to tell you.
