Shifter is not going back far enough to have reverse lights when in reversdse


you need to take the shift unit apart. check to make sure it is calibrated for the gear it is in. if it is at the tranny, (why did you think to push on it there? _) then your linkage has a worn part or connection has loosened in the linkage. chek the switch to see if it has come loose or is worn.

1967 pontiac gto wont go into reverse and constanly needs transmission fluid


Vacuum modulator has an internal leak. Tranny fluid is being sucked up the vacuum hose and into the engine. Kinda surprised you didn't mention shifting problems tho. A bad modulator usually causes the engine to wind out more before shifting to the next gear. Or you have an additional problem besides the modulator.

My problem happens when I shift the gear to reverse, the reverse lights aren't working, I have checked all fuses and are all right. I think taht mey be the reverse switch but I don't knoe where is...


go to a dealer parts guy and ask him to show you the IPB on the reverse switch. they will generally print you that page out of their book on CD for free. helps if you know your year, model, and what type tranny it has. might be a dealer only item so while you are there buy one

Can get all forward gears but can not put it into reverse gear unless the car has been warmed up for ten minutes


The seals inside your transmission are bad and leaking by and they don't start to seal until the tranny fluid warms up and swells the seals. To temporarily fix this problem you can pour some brake fluid into your transmission fluid. This will swell the seal in the transmission and it should start working again. This is only a temporary fix however, eventually you will ned to replace or rebuild your tranny. I used this method on a turbo trans 350 and got a year of service out of it that way before I had to replace the tranny. Just do not put too much brake fluid into the tranny, I would recommend one or two capfuls to start with.

Car goes into reverce but does not engage completely works fine in forward, when in reverce it seems lik it wants to ingage but does not. it makes a chattering sound and feeling. what electric part puts...


Hello. As you know, the transmission is one of the more sophisticated components in any auto. It takes the most transmission pressure to engage reverse, third, and fourth gear in an auto tranny. In an auto tranny, the shifter is connected to a linkage that manually shifts between the different gears in the transmission. When you shift into reverse, all transmission pressure is concentrated to engage reverse. When you shift to drive the transmission will operate normally, building pressure until it can shift into the next gear. With third, second, or first gear selected it will lock out all higher gears (Unless the TCU detects overrevving of the engine, in which case it will override gear selection and upshift to avoid engine damage). All the TCU does in a modern auto tranny is control shift points. Years and years ago, shifting was controlled by a spring attached to the gas pedal. When the gas pedal was depressed, the spring would expand. As tranny pressure grew, the spring would become compressed until it was fully compressed, engaging the next gear. The harder you stepped on the gas, the longer you went until the tranny shifted. In modern transmissions the TCU dictates shift points, and not much else. The TCU will also control when the torque converter will lock, but that's where it's duties end. The problem with engaging reverse is either a linkage issue, or a problem with the pump not building enough pressure to fully engage reverse.

Try putting the shifter in reverse, holding the brakes firmly, and giving the car gas. If the car reaches a higher RPM and suddenly slams into reverse it is the pump. The pump will only build enough pressure to engage reverse with higher RPM's. If the pump is severly damaged it won't engage at all, but if this is the case it probably won't engage third or fourth gear either at that point. If the problem is with the linkage, reverse just won't engage whatsoever, despite RPM's. I'd say start with the shift linkage. If it's bent or misadjusted it could cause reverse to not be fully engaged. The TCU doesn't control reverse at all, since there are no shift points and no need for the torque converter to lock.

BACKUP LIGHTS


Probably the reverse sensor located on your tranny it should be a 2 pronged connector screwed into a hole in the tranny. Goto your dealer to get it. Should be cheap/easy fix.
