Question about Saturn SC2

1 Answer

Reverse band inquiry

My car would not move backwards at all (no warnings or check engine lights) so I put in transmission fluid and the car moved sluggishly backwards after applying the gas while in reverse but not the way it should be moving, also exactly what is a reverse band? How much does it cost and are there any video pieces on replacing it?

Jeep stalls or runs ruff when shifted to reverse tranny was rebuilt not sure if bands were adjusted properly


Hello. Your engine might be burning transmission fluid when shifted into reverse. If bands were out of adjustment, it just wouldn't move...or very slowly.

My 95 chevy cavalier can only go fowar wen i put it on reverse it wont move wat should i do


Check the transmission fluid level 1st, if that is ok then the transmission has a failed reverse clutch band, to replace this part means a transmission rebuild must be performed.

Car will start but will not move forward or backwards can u help?


Mke sure that the transmission is working. you can tell if the engine rpm changes when you put it gear (forward or reverse) if it does not then you need to check the level of the transmission fluid for an automatic or you may have clutch problems if it is a manual transmission. if you have more details on the transmission type (auto or manual) and if it is doing anything when you try to get it to move that would be helpful.

Have no reverse in 1998 lincoln continetal


Hi my name is Tom and I am here to help you.

You did not indicate if you had a manual or automatic transmission. I will assume you have an automatic. The bands(very similar to what one sees in the front of a jet engine) are spun by the hydraulic fluid moving due to the engine turning over.

The bands for reverse are warn or perhaps gone altogether. I would recommend you have the transmission fixed. This is a sub-skill that only specialist can fix.

I trust I was some help with your problem. Please take the time to rank my advise. This is the only way I can get better at helping others. Please feel free to call me or email.

Transmisson ingages in reverse car won't move


your transmission is slipping when its cold. when it warms up the parts inside expand and take up the slack that's caused by the clutches and bands inside being worn. start by checking the trans. fluid level and condition. if it's low, add fluid. if it's brown or black or sparkly, your transmission is junk and needs to be rebuilt or replaced.

The reverse gears are not working.if you put the reverse gears it will accelerate infront instead.what do i do?


It sounds like the reverse band broke. Typically with automatic transmission when you put the transmission in reverse a couple things happen. Usually, the forward clutch engages and the reverse band engages holding the reverse drum from turning, which causes the planetery gears to make the vehicle move backwards. If the band breaks there is nothing told hold that drum from turning and you have a forward gear. The bad news is the trany is going to have to come out to be repaired and usually the reverse drum is one of the first things to go into the trany, so it has to be completely disassembled. Take it to a transmission shop have them check it, hopefully it's something simpler.

When i put my car in reverse it won't move but will drive forward perfect and is full of transmission fluid


Assuming this is an automatic transmission, odds are you have lost a band in your transmission, this will require a rebuild,  you may also notice it will fail to shift into high gear as well?
