The shifter cables and their ends are the same caliber as the rest of these cars. If the cable isn't broken at one end or the other, you can try this fix. Beware: this is an omen:sell the car while it runs! what should i check first - 25315465-zejmo41uy3tce5x43qikgza0-3-0.jpg

If it is a manual, it could be linkage, if its automatic, then likely not, but rather an internal problem.

2006 dodge Ram 1500 will not shift in reverse has codes P0736 and P1790 ?


the 1790 is a range display code, make sure your shift linkage is adjusted correctly 0736 is reverse out of range (rpm) which could mean possible shift linkage, or solenoid problem, or worst case internal problem with low reverse clutch or band, check fluid condition and level if its burnt your most likely going to have an internal problem if not run a scanner for possible adjustment or solenoid failure

Why will my 2001 ford escape only go in reverse


does the shifter itself go thru full shift range? forward and back, but it will only catch in reverse? if so sounds like the linkage has loose bolt or joint. check your likage, underhood,(on column) and on transmission, likely cause is linkage plate on transmission (bolt is loose)

Our Isuzu Fuego LS 4x2 Manual Transmission doesn't move even the shift stick is already palced in First Gear, even in second gear and third gear and fifth gear also no reverse, to sum up only 4th gear will...


you may have a shaft key broken in the transmission. 4th is usually 1-1 drive and does not need the key. before removing the transmission, check to make sure the linkage is OK by shifting gears at the transmission. If you can get other gears at the transmission, then the problem is the shifter.

My car does not work in reverse. It shifts great in all other gears but reverse. i was told it was the reverse linkage needed to be adjusted. Do you think thats right?


try adjusting the linkage then. But sounds like to me the transmission is gone, most transmissions when they go bad, the reverse gear goes first
