Not sure exactly what you mean. This is not really enough information. Does the key not turn unless you are in reverse? or the engine actually won't shut off regardless of the key position?
Do you mean it dies when you put it in reverse? Not sure how to help, but I'll tell you to start with the safety switch in the shifter. It may be aligned wrong and needs to be replaced or readjusted.
The problem with it not starting and what you described is most likely caused by the battery cables. You should replace the whole cable from each post on the battery all the way to where it connects to the engine. The part about it dieing in reverse could be related to the loss of ground connections on the computer.
Sounds like the ignition interlock at the transmission switch is out of adjustment or faulty. Bypass the key switch, at the starter, if it now cranks, it's in the interlock switch or the ignition switch.
It would be kinda nice to know which engine we are talking about. Does it do it ONLY in reverse? Will it continue to run bad if you put it in any other gear? Will it stop if you put it into PARK? This could be caused by anything
Have your transmission oil filter changed;
it is located under the transmission pan
The oil is what makes the transmission shift
When you shut off the engine it stops the transmission pump then when you start up again the transmission shifts until the filter clogs again
Hi mightmike, Have you tried changing your fuel filter,if so and it didn't help much-there's two fuel pump on the '90 240.ones under the car just about under rear passenger seat drivers-side(it's the rounder of the 2 that's there & has wires to it).the second is in the fuel tank. Also check your fuses there's a fuse for both pumps(read the cover for fuse box(by the hood release lever.)Hopefully that will help you fix the problem.How's your air filter?spark plugs etc.(good tune-up does wonders!!!) peace be with you yankeecatter
