The transmission shifts fine in drive, but when going through the geers, Park works, Reverse acts like park, Neutral acts like drive, Drive works, 2nd and 1st work. Any Ideas?


Hi Ken:
Sounds as if the linkage is out of adjustment. Did something specific happen to cause this to start to occur? If you look at the linkage, there will be some point where you can shorten or lengthen the rod that attaches to a lever on the transmission. One way will make it better, the other will make it worse.

Transmission not working right


I believe you have a slipping gears and looks like the gear box need overhauling. Take it to an Automatic Transmission Specialist to Diagnose.Do not leave it and use it any further,surely you will cause serious damage and cost.

Transmission will not shift into reverse


Sounds like the shop didn't do their job right. Call them and take it back if you paid to have it rebuilt. It should not be your problem to solve it. Work should be guaranteed, and if it isn't, you should take matter up in civil court.

Sometimes when I'm stoped at a light or stop sign and start to go my car will act like it is in nutrual so then i have to stop and start it and try to drive again and it will take a few times before it...


HI, this sounds as if the transmission is defaulting and when you turn off the car it resets. I would find a reputable transmission shop and have them look at the problem... good luck

THE GEAR SHIFT WAS MAKING A NOISE AND VIBRATING FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS NOW, AND TODAY I WENT TO GET INTO MY CAR AND IT WOULD NOT START. I COULD NOT EVEN GET MY KEYS OUT OF THE IGNITION. THE CAR WILL NOT GO...


Sounds like the clutch is not catching or the trans could be having problems. It may have some loose parts in the clutch. It could be that your car has locked up in security mode. I have to do this to my grandmothers van every once in awhile. Press the brake, try to turn to steering wheel all the way to left or right and try to turn the key.
