SOURCE: car won't go in reverse
If the vehcile is V6,then the trans model is the A540E,and if it is the 4 cylinder engine,the trans model is an A140E.Both are 4 speed overdrive transmissions,and sorry to report that on just abot every automatic trans on the road,reverse gear failure is almost always a mechanical problem inside the transmission because there are no shift solenoids involved with reverse as with forward gears.And you did say the forward gears were fine.Good luck.

They had a problem with this plastic washer that is in the shifter tower it sits just under the shifter it self and gets worn out and causes this to happen- hope that helps.

are you sure it is first gear it is making when in 1. In park does the car lock up if you try to push it with the handbrake off. If not your problem is adjustment of the cable i.e. although the lever is in reverse the gearbox isn't.

This is not necessary...as many have stated...use a hammer with switch in reverse position. Hammer the seat back...it will catch...

I've got exactly the same problem in '93 Camry w/5SFE automatic w/248,000mi. Transmission shop I trust told me ****** was gone. Another mechanic said the same. I'll drive it 'til the forward gears stop working. Forward L,2,D work great, except downshifting doesn't slow the car at all, although the engine goes to idle.
Let me know if there is any easy fix! Already did a fluid & filter change. . . .results no change. Thanks, cc
