I have a 2003 Chevy cavalier i started the car put it in reverse and it wouldnt reverse. So i tried putting in drive and nothing. I dont get any service soon lights or anything


An automatic transmission I assume. With no prior troubles it could be as simple as the cable connecting the shifter lever to the transmission is broken. To diagnose, have someone move the lever from park to low and back again and watch the linkage located under the hood near the engine. Make sure the engine is off and just turn the key on so they don't run you over.

Why did my car stall when in reverse gear?


I need a little more info. I presume it is automatic, not a manual trans. Was it multiple times that it stalled when you shifted to reverse? or just 1 time. Is the check engine light on, and/or the D4 light flashing?

Engine knocks when you go in reverse why?


If it knocks when you go from Drive to Reverse or Park to Reverse than its usually a rear engine mount, Bushing or bolts to engine cradle under engine near firewall in center of engine bay towards passenger side. This is for a single or tourqe knock Which means the engine rotates too far and makes contact with a part of the engine bay it should not, or it is loose enough to make the sound.

Easier to notice in a stick shift car than a automatic test by setting Ebrake and putting car into reverse go from drive to reverse in idle with foot on brake if its knocking only when you go into gear this is the problem.

Car turns off when put in reverse or drive in the mornings,its an automatic,a golf III Volkswagen


This is a common problem with alot of other makes of cars, it has to do with the air fuel mixture when the car is cold these settings are changed under normal operating temperature by the ECM to make the engine run normally when it is not at optimal running temp. The cause of the engine to stall when in put into reverse is the reverse gear in any car is geared higher then forward first gear so the engine has to work harder to move the vehicle and with a cold engine if the engine is not 100% tuned (proper maintenance and tune up) it will stall when cold and specially when put into reverse. This is a very difficult problem to diagnose and only a highly skilled vdub mechanic working on your car can fix this. I could tell you 8 different things you could try but they may not work, its kinda trail and error. Hope this helps

Nissan pulsar 1988 wont go into gear I can put the gear stick in the right gear but does nothing wont reverse or drive, its automatic and has a reconditioned engine in it


try checking your transmission oil (i had the same problem but after $30 it was fixed) it might had drained out. if your transmission oil is fine then consult a mechanic preferebly an automatic transmission specialist. may be your transmission needs a rebuild.
