You have too much fluid in the transmission. Park on level ground. After a 15 min drive. Leave engine running. Set parking brake. Transmssion in neutral. Check tranny fluid. A cup or more over will cause this. Better to have less than too much. Drain at least a full 1 leter bottle. Go for drive check it again. As above.

I have a 1999 f250 4x4 triton v10 tho odometer works now and then it shifts hard out of first and drive is like netural


Unfortunately you need a new transmission. A bad speed sensor can cause the transmission to shift hard but if it is free wheeling in 3rd gear that has nothing to do with the speedo.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Have you changed the transmission filter recently? If not, you may need to. When you say it froze up in drive, are you referring to the vehicle was in drive and not catching?

1988 Ford Bronco Transmission Issues


is the idle speed correct? do you shift into second before trying to engage reverse?, is the clutch ok, this is most likely not the trans at all but one of the above issues, the clutch is my guess.

Car will not reliably shift into reverse


Your transmission needs to be serviced or it might be going out on you.

2000 Subaru Outback transmission problem


After a good deal of research and several shops suggesting a rebuild of the transmission, I decided to have the trans fluid and filters changed before doing anything. It was a tough call because it could have been a waste of $125. As soon as the spin off filter was removed you could see it was blocked. So the hydraulic pressure in the system was way down, still enough to engage reverse and enough to work all the shifts, but not enough to engage forward without a slight tap on the accelerator.

My Subaru has 240 000 km on it and I suppose the clutch pack rebuild wouldn't hurt, but as it is now it engages quickly and shifts up are noticeably smoother.

May not be the solution for every case, but it solved my situation.

When i put my car in reverse it won't move but will drive forward perfect and is full of transmission fluid


Assuming this is an automatic transmission, odds are you have lost a band in your transmission, this will require a rebuild,  you may also notice it will fail to shift into high gear as well?
