No reverse gear automatic gearbox freelander


Have the car scanned by a transmission shop for transmission related fault codes (not all generic scanners will read trans codes) you may have a bad solonoid in the trans valve body?

REVERSE INHIBIT
If the vehicle exceeds 6 mph (10 km/h) in the forward direction, and Reverse (R) gear is selected, the EAT ECU switches on the low clutch timing solenoid valve in the valve block, which drains the fluid from the reverse clutch.
This function prevents the gearbox from engaging reverse gear when the vehicle is moving in a forward direction, so preventing damage to the gearbox We Are Here To Help !Donald Deane MCSE,ASE,CPO

Jimny suzuki not engaging, seems neutral always. What seems to be the problem?


welcome to usa forum, we dont have Jimny here.
but car is kind simular to a vitara.
no year stated, so that makes real accurate answers impossible.
no transmission stated. or engine size

is it a stick or auto trans?
is car 2wd or 4wd?

is the lever stuck in nutural.?
or is the lever working right but the transmission fails in all gears and reverse.
mine has stick and 5 speeds, and reverse so has 6 gears to try.
If an automatic? trans. check the levels. per the operators guide do not guess.
and change its filter, if never done.
if automatic, make sure the lever moves its cable and the other end of cable is still attached to the trans lever. on the box.
they both move same amount, (cable drive does that)
if not the cable is bad, or bits there.

I have a 2000 toyota celica gts and it wont start or turn over the starter will make like a whinning sound but its not trying to crank the engine maybe its the starter but just in case its not anybody have...


Likely either the starter or solenoid. Solenoid is a combination of relay and actuator, pushing the starter's gear into engagement with your flywheel.

89 sidekick automatic trans slow to engage in reverse on first start of the day.


the 3L30 automatic, its old fashioned Hyramatic,
it has no TCM brain, like the 4 speed.
the tests are all easy.
the Reverse stall tests fails in reverse only cold
this is the 2nd test in the fsm.
  1. levels good per steps in operators guide, lost that?
  2. do the full service, the filter or screen,. is clogged. (above pan)
  3. is the ATF fluid pink, red or black>? does it smell sweet or burned socks.?
  4. if all that is done, the FSM directs you to do the line pressure test.
  5. if the Line pressure is out of spec. in reverse , the tranny is bad.

if 5 fails. live with it or fix it, it will never get better. as pressure drops
more the 1 gear will slip.

My auto transmission for a Ford 2004 Escape with 2WD only engages in reverse. When problem suddenly showed up i was able to drive car in front drive by engaging 1 or 2. stopped car and all forward mov


I would have it towed to a different shop for a second opinion.
To start at the beginning, if it works in reverse but not drive the linkage is working.
When you put the transmission in low or second you are bypassing most of the sensors and valves. You put it in first or second gear and it stays there.
It could be a long list of things from the valve body to the pump to a solenoid or sensor.
There is a good chance the problem could be fixed without needing an overhaul.
You never take a knife to a gunfight, so you wouldn't have anybody but a transmission shop work on a transmission.
When they recommend an overhaul, they are pulling your trans out and replacing it with someone's rebuilt out of the crate. No worries on their part.

Tried to start my 2003 escalade this morning and it would only click. I replaced my battery and still nothing. after a couple of min. i tried agin and it started, this eve it is doing the same thing. just...


Yes - your problem is in your starter - specifically the armature and / or brushes. The starter is located on the passenger side of the vehicle, mounted to the front of the transmission and back of the motor. The starter's armature kicks out and connects with the Ring gear ( automatic trans) or flywheel ( manual trans) and turns the flywheel ? gear to engage the engine. The clicking indicates the solenoid is completing the circuit but the armature is not engaging the gear.The positive battery cable goes directly to the solenoid which is mounted to the starter and the positive cable MUST be removed prior to removing the starter. The armature and related brushes can be replaced instead of buying a new or rebuilt starter / solenoid assembly but should be done by a qualified professional as it can be done wrong and cause serious damage to the ring gear or flywheel.
Hope this helps and please rate my solution!!

Transaxle wont shift into reverse it tries to go in but it sounds like it wont fully engage and the gears are grinding


sounds like a trans problem(internal problem) the trans should be removed and the case opened up to inspect the reverse selector and gear assembly...while its apart, may as well inspect the entire transmission internal parts,, gears , syncronizers , etc... even may as well have the clutch replaced since the trans will be out..save some money on labor
