No reverse is the dead give away that the trans is in need of an overhaul, the problem is the reverse clutch is worn out.

2007 nissan altima won't go in reverse or drive


Hi,
It starts and runs OK, correct?

Check your fluid level - Directions in the Owner's Manual.

Are you pushing the brake pedal b4 trying to move the lever (sorry, have to ask)?

Does the lever move @ all? Into Neutral?

Is the Check Engine Light on?

Sounds like you'll need to have it towed to a shop. Call the Better Business Bureau for a reference, or recommendations from family/friends.

GL,

Won't go back


If your vehicle is fitted with automatic gear box sounds that you are going to loose the transmission.For not going on reverse like having locked wheels,I believe looks like the brake bands in the gear box are the reason and the minimal power you have for forward drive are the clutches which are slipping. Visit an experts shop and please do not force it.

Car only starts in reverse and only drives in neutral


Sounds like a cable to the transmission is not adjusted up right, and/or the neutral safety switch is not adjusted right, if this applies to your Toyota Corolla.
