The problem is more than likely the shift fork. It sits around a slide hub in the tranny and moves it back and forth when shifting in and out of reverse. If the ears on the fork are worn it will not shift it correctly. You will need to take to a tranny shop and have it inspected.

My 2001 pt cruiser does not reverse i got the codes that the ratio reverse is incorrect


Check the fluid first. Fill as necessary and test drive it again. If it good, repair the leaks. Clear the codes. If not, it needs diagnosed. Most times it is just the solenoid pack that needs replaced.

We have a Chrysler PT Cruiser 2.0 ltr 90K on the clock, always serviced. Now will not go into reverse gear. All other gears and clutch operation is fine....any suggestions


the shift cables can be adjusted but you will have to remove the cover around the console. Also look at the top of the transmission to see if any of the cables came off. Oreilly sells a chilton manual for pt cruisers on page 7a-2 it shows the cables and how to adjust them.

Tie rod ends replaced/ clutch out


The tie rod ends should not have anything to do with the transmission. Was the car jacked up on the shift linkage?
