If your fluid level is right you may have a bad transmission. you need to talk to a mechanic.

SOURCE: 99 gmc jimmy transmission slipping

hi check the colour of your transmission fliud is it should a medium red if it looks dirty brown or any other colour that would suggust your clutchs are slipping if your transmission fluid is low or over filled it will cause your problem you can drain your fluid remove your lower sump pan clean the boxes main body and filter replace the oil and try there is no gaurentee it will work but this is a basic you can do and these type of repair can resolve your problem if the fliud is brown then this and an adjustment of of the boxes clutchs and bands must be done this can be done with the transmission in sitution there are other things that can cause the problem but these are well worth doing first as it will not cost a fortune and has a good chance of success yates210456

SOURCE: My reverse went out but only go forward!

Arthur,

Shouldnt be a big deal.

Your shift linkage is probably bent.

You will need to go to a trans shop and get it fixed.

I highly recommend AAMCO since they warranty their work. They will have to "unbend" the bracket or readjust the cable play, or repair the linkage that places the car in the proper gear according to your indicator on steering column or dash.

Not a big deal...but then again you could have crushed the synchro gears, but i truly doubt it!

Thanks,
Mark

SOURCE: Transmission wont shift into 3rd gear.

I had this exact problem on my 2005 5.3L Suburban... It would shift into 1 and 2 and reverse, but not 3 and 4.

I took it into a transmission shop, and he said the 3-4 shift solenoid was burned up. Wanted 1500 to fix it. Far from home, so I have to pay it.

V70 poured new Dex3 auto trans in. Reverse gear stops working after a few days equal 500km, but all forward are still ok.


Sounds like your transmission is going bad. If your transmission is slipping only in drive or forward gears, then it could be just that it is low on fluid, but when reverse starts to slip it usually means rebuild/replace transmission.

Good luck

My 1993 ford tempo 2.3L wants to slip in reverse but changed trans fluid and was very clean and works fine in all forward gears. Is trans going out or could it be an adjustment?


be careful when changing gears into reverse and be careful while in reverse and your transmission should last but if you ride on that gear to much your transmission will fail and you will no longer have reverse in your vehicle even if you have all other gears working

I have a 1998 Oldsmobile Bravada auto trans drive works fine but no reverse


Are you sure you have all 4 forward gears? Most of the time a no reverse condition also means 1st and 3rd only.No 2nd or 4th.If you dont have all the forward gears as i suspect , the reaction shell is stripped or broken.If you do have all the forward gears then these are the two most common reasons you do not have reverse.1 reverse input clutches are damaged or burnt 2 forward cltches have slipped to the point they are welded together causing a mechanical bind in reverse and also causing the transmission to pull forward in neutral.Let me know if i can help.Good Luck.

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.

TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS WILL CAUSE CAR NOT TO MOVE IN ANY FORWARD GEARS. SOME TIMES TRANSMISSION WILL SLIP REAL BAD CAUSING EARLY + LATE SHIFTS.MOST TIME YOU WONT HAVE NO REVERSE ALSO.
