    Does it shift ok in all other gears( forward gears) after you go thru what you describe? No slipping between shifts? Any jurking when it shifts? Any winning or weird noise comming from transmission? When was the last time transmission was serviced? New oil and filter. Need this info before i can help with your problem.

Oil condition could be a problem
I am inclined to think that you took the car to an auto spares shop that does free fault codes reading, you will find that it is servos/ solenoids or problem TCM that is causing the problems
may even be problem wiring connectors or harness problems around the transmission
I am sure that it is not a transmission problem , just what controls the ration changes

SOURCE: 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?

You have a bad Parking brake, Brake, or Neutral safety switch. Not the end of the world on this one.

Try disconnecting the electrical connector at the transmission and see if it stall when you put it in gear. You will get a service engine light, but not to worry, it will go back out once you reconnect.
By disconnecting the wire connector we can tell if it is transmission related.
Good luck, let me know.

My speedometer stopped working


If the speedo and odometer are both dead, you should have shifting problems and a check engine light. The speed sensor in the transmission has probably died.
If the speedo does not work but the odometer does, chances are the problem is in the speedometer head.

Transmission clunks when shifting into reverse after initially starting the car.


It has a worn or broken rear engine mount most of the torque is absorbed in the front mounts and hanger mounts except when it is shifted into reverse.

My 1995 nissan quest overdrive light comes on when i start it and it wont go in drive but will 2nd gear, sometime on can turn the van off and restart and it will go in drive and shift ok but it shifts...


Sounds like the sensor for first gear.
The transmission comes with a shift sensor for each shift: if 4 shift, 4 sensor (including reverse).
Have somebody check the sensors and the cpu for the tranny. They go hand to hand.

Reverse just quit on '95 Pathfinder


If it is an automatic transmission it probably needs transmission fluid. If a standard shift check and adjust shift linkage.

Where is the reverse switch for 1995 oldsmobile cutless supreme


The back up lights are controlled by the neutral safety switch. That is usuall mounted to the top of the transmission. It also has the shift cable attached above it so that will have to come off. Also when you put the new switch in it will need to be adjusted to insure tha car starts in park and nuetral.
