Question about 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier
Details Facing up my steep driveway, I tested my motor mounts by putting it in drive, then gave it gas... then put it in reverse and gave it gas. Then repeated. Afterwards, I couldn't get it to go in reverse, or even roll backwards, but it went forward OK. Finally, I put it in reverse and gave it a LOT of gas... there was a loud BANG that shook/jolted the whole car , and it "unlocked" and backed up. Afterwards, when driving, the transmission then made some bad sounds for a while, but it went away. Weeks later, I discovered that the trans fluid was low. The transmission acted up while accelerating uphill, around a steep left-hand curve. It's been ok since I added fluid. No noise, either.

SOURCE: 1994 honda transmission?
Honda uses internally in the transmission,a shift fork,very much like a manual trans,to change from Forward to Reverse,and vice versa.It is likely this fork isn''t moving.The best thing to do is pull trouble codes out of the car,as a malfunctioning sensor or solenoid (they are mounted on the outside of the trans) could cause a problem.Your year Honda is a manual code read,and their is a procedure to follow to get the codes out of the car.Passenger side front kick panel has to be removed,a blue 2 wire connector located,then a jumper wire is used to short the connector out.Insert the jumper wire,then turn the ignition key to the on position,engine off.This puts the car into diagnostic mode.The "S" light,or gear indicator light on the dash will flash a series of numbers,and these are your codes.You have to write down the number of flashes.For example.....2 flashes,followed by 4 flashes would be a code 24.When the codes are pulled,they then have to be looked up on a chart..then the code is diagnosed and repaired.The problem could still be internal,but external causes have to be addressed first.

Possible tranny problem. If your linkage from shifter to tranny is adjusted properly and your shifter gear needle is right on the PRND21 then it is likely your transmision
