Depending on the vehicle....Yes....If a solenoid is not opening or closing in some cases you will have no reverse.

Hi there;
It sounds a lot like you have a vacuum leak, I'm assuming your car if fuel injected. If there is too much air getting into the engine from a broken vacuum line of possibly a stuck Idle air control motor the computer has to keep adding fuel to make sure the fuel to air mixture is right. the end result of this is the engine RPM's keep going up untill it reaches the propper mixture.
If you are under the hood with the engine running you may hear a "HISSING" noise. It may be loud, it may be subtle, so you might need to listen fairly close.
The job of the idle air contol motor is to bring the idle of the engine down to the proper Idle rpm in a controlled manner without the engine stalling from a sudden loss of fuel from letting your foot off the pedal, after a while these start to get sticky or weak & don't work propperly so this may be the cause as well.
If you don't hear any hissing & can't find a vacuum leak, you'll need to suspect the Idle air control motor.

Good Luck I hope this helps
Farrout!

SOURCE: Transmission will not shift out of second gear.

If flushing the transmission fluid doesn't help (and I'm sure it won't), replace the transmission.

Why does it idle at 2,500-3,000 rpm then drop to 1,000 rpm in drive or reverse?


Hi Paul:
Here are my random observations:
- 2500 to 3000 is really high for "idle"
- Putting it into drive or reverse engages the transmission and puts load on the engine through the torque converter. Since the RPM is high enough that the vehicle thinks it should be moving, the transmission will engage and rpm will drop since more power is needed.
What to do? How long since tuneup?
History? Did this just start immediately, or did it sneak up a bit at a time.
Make, model, engine, year, Kms or miles. Give us some info and someone who is a better transmission specialist will probably kave some more ideas.
Cheers.

1999 Monterey sport. What's wrong with the transmission?


WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU WANT TO GO FASTER THAN 7 MILES PER HOUR IN REVERSE?? Automobiles are not designed to go that fast in reverse!

Car wont go 30 mph


if when you get to 30 miles per hour the rpms are excessively high then the 3rd gear on you're transmission is out. you can try changing the transmission filter and fluid but most likely will not help and you will have to replace the transmission or have it rebuilt anyways. I'm assuming its an automatic transmit ion and therefore if high rpms at 30 miles per hour its sadly the transmission

Loses pressure when driving forward and backwards. It won't go any faster than 25 miles per hour


Sounds your catatylic converter is clogged.You will need to have the exhuast pressure tested.Or the next time you drive it for a little while stop and look under at the converter to see if its cherry red.Also put your hand behind tail pipe and feel how much pressure is coming out at idle.

1988 toyota crissada,runs hot,idles to high.going 5 miles per hour and speedomter say 130 mile per hour,has very little power.


While the engine runs hot there is a possibility that the RPM sensor goes off and shows the wrong reading. First of all check the cause for the overheatting before we can go further.
Some tips were given in your earlier request.

My 1987 El Camino stalls when stopping at a stop light (below 5 miles per hour) after it has been driven 20 or more miles. It is equiped with a carberated 305 V8 with automatic transmission.. Starts up...


Does it feel like the engine is stalling or the transmission is not disengaging? You may have a transmission or toque converter problem. If it is your engine you may have an EGR valve issue or an Idle air control issue.

Will not go in 4 low 4x4 lights start blinking after trying . reset light by unhooking battery . then goes in 4 high normelly but not 4 low. i thlnk auto 4 is working 4 liter SOHC 1998


Normally 4 wheel drive HIGH is engaged on the fly or as you are moving more than 10 km per hour or 10 miles per hour but 4 wheel drive LOW is engaged at around 3 to 5 mph. no more or you could ruin the transfer case. Try going from 2 high to 4 high by switching back and forth and then try 2 high to 4 low when idling along. What usually happens is the mechanics under the car freeze up or rust up and you have to switch back and forth to free it up.

When I drive my car It goes like my tyre is flat stop go stop go


I would get a second opinion at another transmission shop. If the transmission has not been serviced properly I wouldn't be surprised that it is having problems.
