TRY REPLACING THE TRANSMISSION FILTER LOCATED INSIDE THE TRANS. THE TRANS PAN MUST BE REMOVED TO ACCESS THE FILTER. A GALLON OF FLUID WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED AS WELL AFTER FILTER HAS BEEN DONE. THIS PROCEDURE WILL HELP THE OIL PUMP IN THE TRANS TO GET MORE FLUID AND HELP IT TO SHIFT GEARS. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR AN HONEST RATING TOO. BEST OF LUCK.

My car started revving whilst driving and eventually stopped driving it only revs in forward moving forward slowly but not picking up speed and reverses normally.


if it is a manual it sounds like a clutch failure. If it is an automatic it could have gone into SAFE MODE, in which case it will need the services of a good mechanic to diagnose the issues that caused it to go into that state.

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.

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.

C 6 transmission


Forward drive in the C6 requires both the forward clutch AND the low/reverse, one-way clutch, or intermedaite band to engage. Since you have reverse but no forward, the forward clutch is most likely the problem, since it is needed only for forward speeds and does not affect reverse. Sounds like a trans rebuild.

Transmission won't engage/ no drive or reverse at all


It's definitely cheaper to buy a trans from a wrecking yard than to have yours rebuilt. Before you do anything though. Did you make sure that the trans fluid level is full? I know this may be a stupid question, but I had to ask. The speed sensors job is to tell the speedometer how fast you're going...not related to your problem.
