My 03 Buick lasaber will not go into any gear was working fine drove all week parked it one night went out next day and it wouldn't move forward. or backwards HELP. Please


check transmission fluid add if low--if fluid burnt dark brown and smells burnt internal damage and may get lucky with a flush-fluid/filter change ---other can be shift cable disconnected or damaged and not selecting gear --with vehicle in park and keys out of ignition inspect connections at transmission if good more than likely internal damage

95dodge car drove fine one day the next day won't


May be in first gear or may be in "limp mode" where it is actually in 2nd gear and won't shift to any other forward gear. This happens when the transmission has a "BAD" problem. Better get it checked.

No Reverse and the fluid is dirty and smells funny.


Sounds like you blew out your reverse belt/gear in the transmission. Probably going to need a transmission rebuild/replacement.

Ford e-250 transmission problems


My Econoline 250 with 4.2 lost fluid from hose leak, fixed leak everything was normal for 3 days till I drove it on highway. When it went into overdrive lost forward power. Turned off OD and did ok for a while. Lost forward gears slowly, put in fluid, hard to tell when full. Reverse is fine but have to rev up engine to get forward to engage, then everything is fine at lights and such till take out of drive, then have to rev engine to about 2500rpm to engage drive. Help?

Just bought a vw jetta. When i test drove it everything was great. All gears were smooth and reverse worked fine. Now two days later i go out to get in it and back out the drive and it wont go into...


A standard tranny can get stuck in gear while in reverse position, like somebody slammed it into second and the linkage hit reverse instead. Could be minor, then again, It could be major. I hope it is a standard you are talking about, If it is automatic, then no, there is no switch or fuse for this, it has shift solenoids in the valve body that do the shifting, mostly electric now days, a ground wire off could cause this but I doubt it. I would get a hold of the seller and give him back his car. Hope this helps, Tranny work is $1200 minimum.

All forward gears work and shift fine....all the sudden no reverse, still drove forwards and shifed fine. Reverse is like park or neutral.


There is a pin in the transmission that has sheared off or a band has come loose. Bottom line you need to have the transmission serviced and repaired.

04 disco 2.reverse only.no forward gears.m and s light.


Take it in for a check of the computer module that controls transmission and for the engine ECM or PCM. Sounds like it could be a computer malfunction.

Car won't go in reverse


If the vehcile is V6,then the trans model is the A540E,and if it is the 4 cylinder engine,the trans model is an A140E.Both are 4 speed overdrive transmissions,and sorry to report that on just abot every automatic trans on the road,reverse gear failure is almost always a mechanical problem inside the transmission because there are no shift solenoids involved with reverse as with forward gears.And you did say the forward gears were fine.Good luck.
