Question about 2000 Chevrolet Corvette

1 Answer

2000 Corvette 6 speed with problems going into reverse

I have a 2000 C5 with 43,000 miles. Putting the car into reverse is a **** shoot. Sometimes fine 80%, sometimes grinds 10%, sometime goes in OK but pops out of gear or jumps a bit after backing up about 5 feet 10% (like a tooth is missing on the gear) but continue to back up OK. Seams to happen less when car fully warmed up. Clutch peddle is always depressed. I've been told it is likely the transmission. But, also could be or transmission problem caused by problem with Master or Salve.

    Appreciate the comment. However, with all other gears working fine, would that be likely?

I am going through this now my 2000 ram 3500 always had a problem with reverse

I chocked it up to a quirk of the transmission! But my mechanic found out that they only placed this trans in late 1999 and early 2000 trucks first years the 6 speed was offered. It comes with a smaller clutch and synchronizer that are no longer available unless you find a dealer with old stock sitting on a shelf. I am having to updated my cultch and am having to replace the gears that will allow the new type synchronizer to work this in just a about ½ the price of a new transmission BOHICA/FUBAR

So just get ready for a shock if you need to replace synchronizer rings

97 SATURN SC1, WONT GO INTO REVERSE AND GOES VERY SLOW


Transmission is not junk. You need to replace the valve body with a rebuilt one. The cause of reverse not working is because the booster valve cannot create sufficient pressure to get into reverse (reverse requires the most pressure). The booster valve is worn down and the valve body needs to be replaced, rebuilt is the way to go. This is from not changing the fluid and filter every 20,000 -- 30,000 miles to keep gunk from building up and wearing down the valve.

The transmission is fine, don't let anyone talk you into putting another one in, especially for thousands of dollars, NOT THE PROBLEM.
