Odds are the reason it will not move in reverse is either the linkage from the shifter has slipped..needs adjusting.......or your tranny needs an overhaul.

How can I fix my emergency brake from being stuck?

Open up the rear brakes and clean it up in there. Also check to see if your cables are binding. There might be some debris in there that prevents the cables from moving the brake hardware properly.

1.2 manual reverse gear problum

Manual transmission does not change gears with transmission oil. If yours is the AMT type, get it scanned for error codes.If the problem is in shifting into R, get your clutch cable adjusted. Your clutch plate may have also worn out. If shifting is OK but the car just does not move, the gear linkage/cable may need adjustment. If all else is OK, the reverse gear in the transmission may have been damaged.

Santro reverse gear

Problem with transmission. Check your transmission oil. Without driving it get the oil replaced. The more your drive it the more it will damage the transmission. I am 80% sure that is the problem. Hope this helps.

I have a 1992 honda accord now the third spark plug is geting oil when you start tha car whit smoke comesout exhaust then the car has no power theops from 65 goin up hills the motor shakes likts about to...

usually oil on a plug is the beginning of the end-especially for an older car. Your smoke is either from valve seals leaking (bad) or oil control rings (worse)-prepare to replace it in the near future.

I have a 1995 lincoln town car signature series and I having a problem with my transmission. When I put my car in reverse gear the car does not want to back up.

Check the oil level inside. The automatic transmisions are working oil based. If not enough oil, not enough pressure for moving the hidraulic mechanisms inside. The clutch is also actioned by oil pressure.

Car will start fine, brakes work but once in drive or reverse will not move, think its the transmission. Car has 350k km.

When you move the shifter into the position P,R,N,D does the indicator on the gauge light up. For example in "P" the P indictor light up, "R" the R indicator light up and so on.
If it does then you might have a bad transmission.
If the indicator stay in one position only even when you' move your shifter back and forth. You might have a broken link cable from the shifter to the trans.
