2006 dodge Ram 1500 will not shift in reverse has codes P0736 and P1790 ?


the 1790 is a range display code, make sure your shift linkage is adjusted correctly 0736 is reverse out of range (rpm) which could mean possible shift linkage, or solenoid problem, or worst case internal problem with low reverse clutch or band, check fluid condition and level if its burnt your most likely going to have an internal problem if not run a scanner for possible adjustment or solenoid failure

1991 Ford F150 won't shift into park or reverse. Will go into neutral and drive, and the linkage at the transmission moves ok


The linkage may be out of adjustment preventing the shifter from moving into reverse or park.
One way to test this is to disconnect the linkage and manually move the lever on the transmision making sure that it can be set into park. Also try moving the lever counting each click from park to low gear to make sure it is clicking into each gear. If this works then the linkage is probably out of adjustment.
On the link cable there is typically a bolt in an oval shaped metal near the transmission shift lever.
1)Detach the shift cable from the transmission shift lever
2)Put the transmision shift lever in the park position, and also the shifter in the cab
3)Loosen the adjustment bolt
4)Reattach the cable to the lever
5)Tighten the adjustment bolt in place
6)Confirm that you can shift through all of the gears
Hope this helps

My car does not work in reverse. It shifts great in all other gears but reverse. i was told it was the reverse linkage needed to be adjusted. Do you think thats right?


try adjusting the linkage then. But sounds like to me the transmission is gone, most transmissions when they go bad, the reverse gear goes first

1999 saturn sl2 5 speed transmission will not go into reverse 2nd gear sometimes will not engage is there a linkage adjustment.


There is no 'adjustment' but you can check your linkage for security making sure nothing is loose or worn. Also check your fluid levels. If reverse is completely out and your starting to lose second you will probably need to have the transmission rebuilt or replaced.

Reverse gear spits out


is it manual or automatic. Spits out. Being an 85 golf, There are parts on vehicles that need adjusting over time. There are parts on these adjustable parts that need maintenance and after say 24 years lol, replacing. Shift linkage adjustment and shift bushings are the most common cause of reverse (spitting out). Purchased online for 8.00 U.S. or get the nice neoprene if you plan on keeping the golf. Shift linkage adjustment is easy if you are a professional. If your not, plan to be on your back and making alot of trips back and forth if you don't know what your doing. Don't let some crook talk you into serious money. Adjust your linkage , but first replace the shift bushings. The little things are what tell the big things what to do.

My manual reverse gear on my '96 VW Jetta spits out the reverse and makes a grinding sound?


You have bad sycronizers in the gearbox. They are made of softer metal so they will wear out. They are used to smoothly shifte from one gear to another. How does the clutch feel? Any play in the shifter? Could be the clutch going bad, or play in the shifter also.
