Question about Cars & Trucks
My 1987 3 CX worked fine the other day.When I started it the next day it would not move in any gear and also wouldnt work in forward or reverse I checked the shuttle solenoids and thy work fine I did notice a rattling noise in the in the torque converter which is noticable sometimes and would have to listen carefully more times to hear it.Is my problem in the torque converter im wondering is there a possible fault which can occur suddenly without any warning.
If its automatic. Torque converter consists of 3 components. Impeller(bowl like dome with fins inside it for fluid displacement), turbine(same as above), stator(located in the centre; like a fans blades). Fluid flows and reaches optimal flow to give drive to the wheels. If there is no fluid, then there is no drive. Check gearbox fluid level. Or maybe the gearbox broke, or the diff broke or a cv shaft or a cv joint.

I believe that reverse is operated by a brake band. So it seems to be stuck. It is operated by a piston, and the seal could have swelled and caused too much friction. But you could loosen up the adjustor so that it is disengaged, in order to get forward gears again. Perhaps you can force the piston to retract as well, once you drop the pan again.

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
