I suspect that changing the tranny oil will not solve your problem. At best when the pan is removed to change the oil filter you will probably find clutch parts in the sump. However having said that take it to a tranny shop and have the pressures tested before doing anything else

Before starting with the hard ones, start with the usual culprit like fluid levels and the condition if it needs repairing. If there are debris in the system it could clog the valves for the reverse gear which makes it difficult or impossible to engage. This unfortunately would need inspection of the transmission from the outside. Check the linkages and the lines and look for leaks to inspecting the internal parts especially the gears.

You say transmission fluid levels are good. Is it a nice red or pink color or is it an orange, brown to black color. Does the vehicle actually shift into gear, the linkage from the gear shift from park to drive or reverse maybe be unhooked you can check that out also. Does the trans fluid smell burnt, should be kind of a sweet smell. Good Luck

the shifter linkage has become loose or shifted and not aligning properly, truck will only start in park or neutral.
the linkage needs to be realigned and repaired. this should be done at a professional level. the alignment is critical, if it is near shift point it can pop from park to reverse, or change gear suddenly causing an accident or transmission damage.

I have a 97 VW Golf auto trans, I have no reverse gear, no noise when placed in gear it just wont move, all forward gears work fine, any ideas for me


Check your fluid level to make sure its up to the specified level, then I'd be checking out your linkage from your shifter inside the car right to the transmission, it sounds like to me your linkage may be worn enough to put the vehicle in drive but not reverse. The linkage bushings are a common problem on vdubs. See if you can put the car in reverse by moving the linkage arm directly attached to the transmission (make sure you have someone in the car with the brakes on or caulk the wheels) if it does go into reverse when you manually move the direct linkage arm at the transmission then replace your linkage bushings, if not then the only other problem would be a transmission internal problem. Good luck

Goes in reverse but dont move. in drive only goes 10mrh.


I think you need to bring that thing to a transmission shop. it is a bit surprising that a 5 y'old car would have a bad trans but maybe a transmission shop can save it. GL
