    I have the same problem with my automatic 1999 Jimmy. It won't go into reverse and strains as it's shifting into the forward gears. By strains... I mean it the RPMs get higher than usual before shifting.

    Need help badly!!!

    if possible.... have someone put it in reverse while you watch the shift linkage on the transmission.

This is caused by the reverse clutch pack being worn out. You will need the trans pan removed and a diagnostic run.

My jimmy won't shift into high gear or reverse, it just revs up. Other gears still work. This came on supers suddenly, drove it somewhere and it was fine, then when drove about 10 miles towards home, it...


Does it also hold first gear longer that it should and then shift right from 1st to 3rd? It sounds like you broke the sun shell in the transmission. The trans will need to replaced or rebuilt.

My reverse went out but only go forward!


Arthur,

Shouldnt be a big deal.

Your shift linkage is probably bent.

You will need to go to a trans shop and get it fixed.

I highly recommend AAMCO since they warranty their work. They will have to "unbend" the bracket or readjust the cable play, or repair the linkage that places the car in the proper gear according to your indicator on steering column or dash.

Not a big deal...but then again you could have crushed the synchro gears, but i truly doubt it!

Thanks,
Mark
