Fiesta started making noises either gearbox or clutch? clunks going in to reverse, shudders driving off in 1st gear


sounds like your clutch is going out, is it hard to put in gear with clutch all the way depressed? could also be the sinkronyzer going out, could be the gears in the transmission also going bad. need to check the fluid in the transmission.

All gears work except reverse won't work. Check


Take the car to AutoZone, they will check your ECM for the code using a OBD II scanner that is causing the problem for free, once you have that code the problem can be diagnosed easier.

My 1996 ford exporer eddie bauer edition wondt reverse could it be the transmission?


Have the linkage checked first. If your shifter is 1/8" off, you can totally miss reverse.

I think transmission went out of my 97 gmc safari just had transmission rebuilt a year ago the only thing is i still have reverse would there be anything else which would cause this?


As weird as it sounds, the oil level in an automatic transmission can cause a few weird things like this so maybe a seal wasn't put in correcly when they rebuilt and oil leaked out, causing bugs and whatnot since the tranny doesn't have enough oil to build the right pressure to operate completely. And if they rebuilt it though, they should've changed the clutch packs in the tranny, but it could happen that they forgot some, or installed wrong and they broke after a while or a host of other things, cause in some models there are 2 or 3 different clutch packs, one for reverse (but not on all models) one for the normal drive gears (gears 1 through 3) and another for the overdrive (4th). So if the clutchpack for the normal drive gears broke or is too worn out cause they forgot to change it, then it would shift in reverse since the reverse clutch pack is good, and not go into drive cause the driver packs are shot. Although I never did dismantle a safari transmission so i cannot garanty you have a seperate clutch pack for reverse or not, so ask a local mechanic that is used to working with those models if it is possible in this model or not before payin to get the tranny opened again. If it's impossible for the clutch packs to cause this and the fluid level is OK, then the problem is probably in the valve body solenoid pack, and in that case it's bad news for the tranny... valve bodies are muchos muchos money and so is the ammount the garage will charge to change it.

Tranny will go in reverse fine but it has no forward gears.


she's pooched, your forward gears in an automatic are completely separated from the reverse same with a standard either way your on your way to the tranny shop

99 saturn sl2 has lost reverse


Reverse & 2nd gear share the same clutch pack.Usually when reverse goes out you will get wierd shifting into 2nd or 3rd.Most likey the Input shaft retaining nut has come loose inside the first clutch housing.It can be accessed from the trans end cover but it will take some disassembly.The trans doesn't have to come out to correct this problem.I repaired many saturns with this problem.The only parts you will have to buy is an end cover gasket(paper gasket) & 41/2 qts Trans fluid.Decent mechanice could do this in about 2-3 hrs or less.The service engine light is probally on due to trouble codes from the trans controller most likey DTC P0723 No 2nd gear.hope this helps

Transmission on 1995 Buick Century, slipping badly


Sir I would first change my filter. When you do you should be able to acertain if anything is wrong by what yuo find in your pan. I think your clutchs are probably bad, but with out being able to scan it I don't have any other ideas. I have been lucky a couple of time before and changing the filter solved my problem. Your car is in limp mode generally you have reverse and second gear. 1st gear and reverse use the same clutches, so I am wondering if maybe you have second gear only!
