Unfortunately the only thing to do in this case is to open the gearbox and see the real status of the cylinders, it's very possible the cylinders do not make contact anymore.

well Im sure theres a ton of miles on it-do u perform reg maint like checkin fluid level-u may need the throttle cable ajusted that hooks to trans-band n clutch could be out of measure too--trans hydra-valve system could be worn--see all these things effect the way the fluid makes the gears move--a pressure test can confirm an aging trans

I assume this is an automatic since you mention "Park". If so, it seems as if one of the planetary cluches is worn out (or you have insufficient pressure in the tranny). Either way, it is tranny rebuild time. Is the transmission fluid brown and burnt smelling or a nice bright red? Any particles floating in it?

Sorry but this is far too complex a fault to be able to solve remotely. There's the added complication that nobody on FixYa has any way of knowing whether the transmission rebuild was done properly, or was just a cheap replacement of a few obvious broken/worn parts and a fresh coat of paint. There is no such thing as a cheap rebuild, so if that's what you had then that's what you got. A good rebuild takes time and money and that's why a good rebuild usually comes with a warranty which gives the same or similar protection to a brand new Honda original. By contrast, cheap rebuilds are usually only good enough to enable you to sell a faulty car to the next unsuspecting owner.

If you had a proper tranny rebuild then contact the company which did the work as your fault might still be under warranty.

If you're lucky, it's just the shifter linkages which have disconnected or have broken/worn bushings but you'll only find out by getting the car to a garage for proper diagnosis.

In turbo hydro 700 why would forward gears make the rear wheels go in reverse


Your differential is upside down. Ford model T's had the same problem. It was possible to mount the rear axle upside down which made the car go forward in reverse and backward in forward gears.

I bought a 92 Chev 2500 4X4 from a guy just recently. He said the tranny wont go into gear. I found the transfer case was in neutral. So i put it in gear and away it goes. But reverse seamed sluggish. ...


If your transmission is a 700r4 (4l60) you have a reverse band that engages when you want to go in reverse. since it drives forward your low reverse clutch and your fwd clutch are working. This leaves the band which was probably slipping now is not engaging.

Won't go in reverse and all gears are in forward motion including nutral


check the linkage from the tranny, is it an automatic tranny ?, make sure the shifter cable is moveing in and out when you shift gears, if it moves both ways you might have to adjust the linkage again as it could have slipped, hope this helps.

Wont go in reverse but will go forward...


That is the way automatic transmissions usually die when they go slowly :( The reverse idler gear lets go, but the rest of the transmission is not very far behind. I've seen them go a while after reverse gave way, but not very long, usually the whole transmission will pile up pretty soon after. I'd look into getting that tranny rebuilt/replaced before it leaves you stranded and the tow call adds to the bill. The one thing i hate about automatics is the fact that, unlike manuals, they work just great one minute, and the next minute, they just quit working all together. Before anything else, just check your transmission fluid level with the motor running, transmission in neutral, parking brake set, but in your case, because it goes forward, the level is probably ok, the tranny probably has internal problems...

No reverse movement after valve body was removed and cleaned


Stupid question here, but did you put the valve body in backwards or upside down? Ensure all the connectors, lines are good....outside of that how about the gear selector? I have done alot of tranny work myself, but some of these things are common mishaps that I have done myself. Good luck to you and let us know what you come up with. Thanks for using Fixya!
