Question about 2006 Toyota Tacoma

1 Answer

Is it bad to drive your car if reverse is not functioning?

It's a 1990 VW cabrio, manual transmission. Reverse just suddenly stopped working. Haven't figured out why yet, but want to continue driving it for the weekend. Is that ok?

    Yes, it now seems as if something is misaligned. Where reverse should be is first (can't find reverse), what should be first is actually third....and so on...wierd, I know. Does this make sense?

Why would a 1990 ford tempo go in reverse but not forward it is 2.3 4 cylinder manual


Because the transmission is dead. reverse works on different parts than drive on these cars. And since no one uses reverse more than drive? well you get my point.

I would change the transmission filter and fluid first. It could be that your filter is old and stopping the transmission from working properly.

If a transmission fluid and filter change does not solve the problem, then it's time for a transmission rebuild or replacement. This can often happen if the car was driven improperly, such as sudden stops and starts, jamming the clutch into gear (in manuals), down shifting while the car is in another gear or from old age.

Automatic gearbox 1990jetta2 car rides when gearlever is place in drive but when placed in reverce car donot want to move.


You need to get a Haynes manual or similar.
There are two cables which run from the shift lever to the transmission to select the PRND21.
If these cables are not adjusted precisely, you will lose a function. After the reverse gear stops working the out of adjustment won't allow the car to go into park. The park position becomes reverse.
The Haynes manual describes step by step how to do it. Cheap book (about $15).
Try other positions like neutral or part way through neutral and park and you may find your gear there. If you do, you are lucky; adjustment only.
If the cable is not the problem....you may need a transmission.

MAKE SURE YOUR TRANSMISSION FLUID IS FULL/ADJUST YOUR LINKAGE SO REVERSE LINES UP/REPLACE THE TRANSMISSION FILTER AND FLUID.NEVER PAY $100S-$1000S TILL YOU TRY THE ABOVE BECAUSE THEY WILL TAKE YOUR MONEY.
