Question about 1991 Ford Explorer

Goes forward in all gears but not in reverse. If put in nuetral it still won't go back it is like the brake is on. Don't know how to check or fill the oil in the rear differential either.

Engine revs but no acceleration


Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. Or one of the CV joints is detached from the gear box. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

I have a 1990 GMC RALLY VAN 3500. When I put the van in any forward gear it seems as though the emergency brake is on. There is force on the engine as though it is trying to turn the transmission but no...


when you say you checked the rear end for problems and things appeared good did you check the rear end internally to see if there is a broken gear tooth or metal in the differential oil.i`ve one were this was the problem(a broken gear) that would get caught and stop the forward motion or make it hard to turn.i`ve also had it were the rear brakes were causing a forward motion problem like your having.the shoes were rotating so far when the drum was turning then apply and lock up until it was put in reverse.just some things to check out.if things were working good with the rear drive shaft removed and the problem starts with it in then the problem is in the back end some where as mentioned above.

2001 Hyundai Tiburon will not go in reverse, but drives fine otherwise.


Hi There,

As demonstrated in the test drive of the vehicle, the Tiburons gearstick has a little groove just passed the crown. Starting in nuetral - lift groove up and put it into the reverse position (where gear 6 is normally) by doing this lift you take the gear box to a second level. to move out of reverse simply take the gearstick and return it to nuetral then into first gear, you are now able to drive forward.

Hope this helps,

Cheers Buckaroo,
Chris.

2002 lincoln wont go forward but goes in reverse


Start the engine and allow it to get to operating temperature.

Place the gear selector in Reverse, then slowly through all the forward gears, while holding the brake.

Replace the selector in Park, but leave the engine running.

Check the transmission fluid level.

If low, add fluid until level is correct, then repeat above procedure and check fluid level again to ensure that transmission is filled to proper level.

If level is correct, perform fluid/filter exchange. If problem persists, see qualified service technician for further diagnosis. Transmission damage will require overhaul to repair.

My Automatic non-turbo 84 300zx wont work


pburcham: In studying up on your problem, I could only come up with a few possibilities from your description.
1. Linkage adjustment
2. A problem with the "Low and reverse Brake band"
however, this usually has a symptom of poor acceleration
due to the transmission slipping. That band has to grab the drum to hold for low gear.
3. Problem with the manual valve in the valve body.
4. Damaged seals causing pressure leakage which will keep the clutches from locking up.
5.Defective "High Reverse clutch" (front) check ball
Possibly a few other things, but everything (unfortunately) is still internal. The inhibitor switch is for the starting circuit and just keeps you from starting the car in anything but park and neutral.
Transmission control unit will not have this harsh an effect. It should operate without the TCU. You should be able to do a manuel shift with the transmission.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
I can say one thing, these transmissions were not known for failures, consequently should be a dime a dozen in salvage yards.
Why or how you got a bad one?????? Don't know?
If I can help, let me know........
