Likely bad linkage, or shift lever.

SOURCE: no reverse sometimes geo metro a/t

The accelator cable is "Y" shaped. one side goes to the carb and the other to the tranmission. If you have the carb.side too tight it will give you the problem that you are having.

SOURCE: 1994 Ford Ranger won't shift into drive

In 9 out of 10 cases when I see this problem in the ranger, it is the planetary gear in the transmission. It is made of the cheapest metal available. It breaks usually from going to park before the truck stops or switching from reverse to drive while still rolling. Just a Idea , But I hope it isn't that . Reverse will work fine for a while, and have no forward gears.

SOURCE: transmission shifting problems

If Drive Selector switch is properly aligned then a shift silonoid might be the problem.

SOURCE: The car will only go in reverse. It will not even go in 1st, 2nd, or overdrive. Any solutions?

it sounds like you have low fluid or a bad front pump on your tranny.make sure you are checking your transmission fluid correctly. reverse is the lowest gear so it is usually the last to go.

Sounds like you have lost a shaft(sungear) in the transmission. It can be repaired, but you can get a used one for less than half the cost. Repair-$1300.00+, used - around $500.00

I have a 2001 f150 and it wont go into reverse. when i put it in park that works fine then when i put it in reverse it acts like its in neutral and neutral works fine and drive, 1st, and 2nd all work fine....


I wrote an answer to this once,I thought. How many miles/years on your old transmission oil and filter? There might be dirt in the valve body or servo.
If it were mine, I'd put the correct amount of SEA-FOAM TRANSMISSION Treatment into it,follow the directions, and then do a flush and fill with new filter of my transmission.
When you rev it will it kick into reverse? don-ohio (:^)

My car shifts hard from 1st to 2nd then to 3rd,check enginelight comes on right after,it wont shift out of 1st,


Sounds to me that you need to have your clutch replaced, it sounds like you have either broken teeth on the flywheel gear or bent or broken fingers on your clutch plate...
Hope this helps!
Happy Holidays!
