Question about Dodge Ram 3500

Transmission Problem or ????

Our truck has been in perfect condition since we bought it, perfectly maintained, no problems until now. The gear shaft will go into reverse but it won't back up and the gear shaft will not go into 2nd or 1st, however when in drive it does go through first and second gear without a problem. ????

My 1989 Honda CRX the idle jumps when I push on the clutch what causes this

Does your transmission and clutch work perfectly fine, no noise or any problem? I can't imagine why the idle would jump from dis-engaging the clutch from the flywheel. When you do that, the transmission input shaft is no longer turning with the flywheel- it becomes stationary. If the input shaft had worn gears or a worn bearing, I suppose it could put a little load on the engine, make it work harder to maintain rpm's. So when you push the clutch in, that load from turning a worn bearing or gear disappears and your idle increases. How's that for a crazy solution?

Don't know much about crx, but I assume the computer controls idle? If it does, the ecu would have no compensation in idle speed for pushing the clutch pedal down.

Xterra transmission won't shift out of first gear. Is there a vacuum hose to check? It has been running perfectly until this morning.

No vacuum hose as this is an electronic shift control trans. Check the fluid condition and rad cap to see if there is any cross contamination due to a faulty trans cooler in the rad. If MIL is on check code

Automatic transmission in a 1995 3000gt will go into 1st gear sometimes and only in reverse at other times

indicates a problem in the torque converter clutch servo/solenoid or harness wiring to the transmission
recently replaced --check that all of the connections are properly assembled and clean on the pins

How many thousand miles can 2002 acura MDX go before the start having mechanical problems?

That is almost impossible to tell as there are so many different factors involved. How the cars been driven, weather, road conditions, length and frequency of trips, etc...
One thing I can safely say is that an 8 year old car is probably going to need something unless it has been maintained to the T and driven perfectly, in perfect weather, perfect climate, perfect road conditions, etc. Even then something is bound to go bad just because of the age.

I own a 1992 Dodge Caravan and somtimes it goes into second gear

You need to have a shop scan the TCM for codes. Then you can determine what is wrong. These are good for having bad turbine shaft and output shaft speed sensors.
