Since the cooler works in either direction,That would have no effect on the gears,Check the linkage and the controls on the transmission.

In turbo hydro 700 why would forward gears make the rear wheels go in reverse


Your differential is upside down. Ford model T's had the same problem. It was possible to mount the rear axle upside down which made the car go forward in reverse and backward in forward gears.

I have a 99 Mercury Cougar 2.5 v6. I have only reverse. No forward gears. It's an automatic transmission


check the fluid condition/ex. full level/rose pink/red color is good if it's brown it's burning this could be from slipping/ improper cooling from hot running engine(the tranny lines go through the radiator)broken vacuum line/pressure loss dirty electrical connectors/blown switches inside the tranny/or the tranny is completely shot==this all depends on what you find if your engine has been running rough for a while your loosing vacuum inches and proper voltage and this will contribute to ruining a transmission in a short time also high heat /hot running engine == old transmission===I'm fried out === junk yard transmission=$$and a lot of work / rebuilt transmission===$$$$$ and other repairs as needed to not burn the new one out in 6 months or less good luck

Auto transmission won't go in reverse


if all forward gears work properly and engauge in the correct position then your going to have the reverse band adjusted in the trans or rebuilt if your lucky and have lower milage the adjustment works alot of times i do suggest you have it done at a tranny shop as to not over adjust and they can also do a pressure test at the same time

Transmission bogs down


what counts is ENGINE RPM.
see?
i put shifter in REV.
i do the stall test in the FSM, or at alldata.com
the stall test is brake hard sat and advance throttle with right foot for 5sec max, what is RPM????
if its very very low RPM that is a weak engine, but will not that, because car drives perfect in forward gears.
if the RPM shoots why to high (read the page) 2500 is like max,IIRC.
that means REVERSE slips.

ever try a new tranny filter. or better a full flush and new filter?
ever 50k?
amazing things happen , it last 2 times longer.

hell do the stall test in all gears, takes what 1min?
and see the book , on spec.
alldata.com
or the real FSM
get one, and win.
see it here, in 1st.
this video use the A/T tranny to test a good MAF.
http://www.fixkick.com/videos/FLV-all/showtime.html#MAF

this test is classic test on all trannys, in all FSM of ever car (non CV)
note the rpm in top right corner, and it ends at 2000 rpm
this proves 3 things
1: engine has full power
2: tranny dont slip in 1st.
3: the MAF is at full output and good, (ignore this for now)

then brakes are had set. and chocks on tires.
the engine and tranny be come like a dyno test.
the FSM cover this is vivid details on 1st and reverse.
and the solutions.

95 mustang v6 auto no forward gears but works in reverse had ****** rebuilt and same thing


Maybe your differential is shot and will only allow reverse spin or the transmission was not really rebuilt professionally. Was the transmission checked outside of your car after rebuild? Does your vehicle have a Powertrain Control Module (PCM)? Maybe the module went bad or faulty.

I bought a 92 Chev 2500 4X4 from a guy just recently. He said the tranny wont go into gear. I found the transfer case was in neutral. So i put it in gear and away it goes. But reverse seamed sluggish. ...


If your transmission is a 700r4 (4l60) you have a reverse band that engages when you want to go in reverse. since it drives forward your low reverse clutch and your fwd clutch are working. This leaves the band which was probably slipping now is not engaging.

99 Jag xj8l stopped shifting low gears, only goes in high gear.


You will need to have your tranny rebuilt or get a replacement. As a mechanic myslef, I have seen this a few times in the Jag XJ series. Those people eneded up having tranny replaced as well.

Car will not go move in forward gears


You are going to need a Rebuild on this Tranny. Unless you know how to Rebuild a Tranny, I would have it done at a Tranny Shop. If you get the Clutches in the Wrong order During Rebuild it could Crack the Housing on the Tranny and cause a Bigger Problem. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
