SOURCE: no reverse gear

This question should be deleted. Aside from the obvious illiteration, there is nothing in the known universe that could be stuck in an oil filter that could cause the transmission to fail, nor could the oil pressure. What most likely happened is someone did a neutral drop and blew a solenoid in the transmission. Rebuild/replace transmission, or drive without it.

SOURCE: AUDI A4 AUTOMATIC SLOW TO

Not overly familiar with Audis but it sounds like either a.) you have an electronic tranny that has a serious bug or b.) there's a problem in the computer of the car itself. What is sounds like is the car is taking a long time to "understand" that you're telling it to move forward. How new is the car? When you push on the gas before the three minutes, what happens?

SOURCE: Reverse gear on 1988 Chevy C1500 automatic transmission

sounds like the reverse clutch is shot, pull the pan and look for allot of grey material in the pan, some is normal but a big pile is trouble, if it is not to bad change the fluid and filter and use the new DEXRON 6 fluid, it is compatable with all GM automatics, keep your fingers crossed and it should give you a little while longer before u need an overhaul..

SOURCE: car won't drive forward or in reverse

this is the speed shift solenoid and a possible faulty transmission filter as well. the best thing for this issue is to pull the tranny and check for filter clogs and change the shift solenoid.

No reverse gear automatic gearbox freelander


Have the car scanned by a transmission shop for transmission related fault codes (not all generic scanners will read trans codes) you may have a bad solonoid in the trans valve body?

REVERSE INHIBIT
If the vehicle exceeds 6 mph (10 km/h) in the forward direction, and Reverse (R) gear is selected, the EAT ECU switches on the low clutch timing solenoid valve in the valve block, which drains the fluid from the reverse clutch.
This function prevents the gearbox from engaging reverse gear when the vehicle is moving in a forward direction, so preventing damage to the gearbox We Are Here To Help !Donald Deane MCSE,ASE,CPO

What is it when in reverse the automatic transmission on a 1999 Camaro grinds?


Reverse is not "synchronized" forward gears are, so it does make some noise, try shifting to 2nd before engaging reverse to slow gear rotation and limit gear clash or grind.

Blazer drives forward but not in reverse have been told transmission is out and not out


The two only causes I can think of for this IF it is an automatic is either low fluid or shifter alignment. Does the shifter align with the marks for all the forward gears? If you slowly go from park to drive, does reverse engage at any point?

If it is not fluid or shifter, then the transmission needs to be checked. Could be reverse gear or if lucky just the bands are not catching for reverse.

My reverse transmission stop working suddenly this morning when I started the car. All the other forward gear positions work. When I engage the automatic transmission to reverse and accelerate i just hear...


OK, I would first check the fluid level in the transmission to verify that it's full or topped off.

Usually transmission fluid and filter changes will not correct physical problems with the solenoid not going into reverse, and get rid of strange noises.

Changing the fluid is more like a preventative measure against malfunctions, but once damage is done it's probably permanent.

You probably are looking at a transmission rebuild in this case, unfortunately.

The reverse gears are not working.if you put the reverse gears it will accelerate infront instead.what do i do?


It sounds like the reverse band broke. Typically with automatic transmission when you put the transmission in reverse a couple things happen. Usually, the forward clutch engages and the reverse band engages holding the reverse drum from turning, which causes the planetery gears to make the vehicle move backwards. If the band breaks there is nothing told hold that drum from turning and you have a forward gear. The bad news is the trany is going to have to come out to be repaired and usually the reverse drum is one of the first things to go into the trany, so it has to be completely disassembled. Take it to a transmission shop have them check it, hopefully it's something simpler.

Hyundai excel 1996 automatic will engage reverse and park but no forward gears. Gearbox was overhauled 3 years ago, new seals etc. Oil level in the main transmission is ok and no apparent leaks. Problem...


It appears you have a Forward Clutch FAILURE. Replace the trans after you get it diagnosed and verified by a professional technician. By the way, do you have a Check Engine light? If so, what is the diagnostic code? The dealership can scan the system and find any codes which may have been stored in the TCM (Transmission Control Module). If there were any 'Incorrect Gear Ratio" codes, it's most probably the trans itself.
