Check the linkages between gear shift and Box could be loose. If these are OK get a transmission service by a good Auto Transmission shop

What causes 95 suburban to not go into gear. tranny fluid adequate and clean. simply wont engage.


First we need to figure out what transmission you have. Crawl under the vehicle on the drivers side (be sure to chock your tires) and see if there is a black box on that side of the transmission. If so, then it is the 4L60E and there are many electronic parts that could be the culprit. Also while you're under there check and see if your shift linkage is hooked up, that will be on that same(drivers) side of the transmission. While your under there getting dirty, you could park the vehicle on level ground, chock the front wheels, jack up the entire rear of the vehicle and place it on jackstands. With the rear of the vehicle up in the air you could un-bolt the shift linkage and try to manually shift the transmission. If that works, you could have a broken shift linkage, or if you do have the 4L60E out may be that little black box where the shift linkage attaches to the transmission. Good luck and be careful!

When I start car up in the morning and try to back up car just sit there. car will go in drive but not reverse.


Check the linkage between the shift lever and the transmission. If this linkage is loose or poorly adjusted the car may not go into some gears.

My car does not work in reverse. It shifts great in all other gears but reverse. i was told it was the reverse linkage needed to be adjusted. Do you think thats right?


try adjusting the linkage then. But sounds like to me the transmission is gone, most transmissions when they go bad, the reverse gear goes first

Transmission wont go in reverse


Auto or manual,,, if auto it could be linkage or the locking button on lever,, or the reverse band has either broken or worn out
If manual box then its either a burred or worn revers gear,, or Selector shaft ball and spring jamed up but only in a 4speed forward gear box or the reverse gear fork pin has come adrift.

I have a 97 VW Golf auto trans, I have no reverse gear, no noise when placed in gear it just wont move, all forward gears work fine, any ideas for me


Check your fluid level to make sure its up to the specified level, then I'd be checking out your linkage from your shifter inside the car right to the transmission, it sounds like to me your linkage may be worn enough to put the vehicle in drive but not reverse. The linkage bushings are a common problem on vdubs. See if you can put the car in reverse by moving the linkage arm directly attached to the transmission (make sure you have someone in the car with the brakes on or caulk the wheels) if it does go into reverse when you manually move the direct linkage arm at the transmission then replace your linkage bushings, if not then the only other problem would be a transmission internal problem. Good luck

2004 MUSTANG REVERSE LIGHTS KEEPS BLOWING FUSE WHEN SHIFTED TO REVERSE , SWITCH IS UNPLUGED


Check for water in the transmission selector pack.

After rain or a good car wash,water can get into this transmission gear selector/sensor box.

attach to transmission, and move/select by the linkage RND21 movement.

I have to replace my selector box because the bad contact tell the trans computer it's on a different gear!

Transmission will only go into reverse


I would check the linkage and if it is all connected and working then the problem is internal. A pump can go and leave no shavings or metal flakes in the pan.

To check the linkage put the truck on ramps, support it with jackstands crawl under the truck while someone sits in the drivers seat with the parking break on. Watch the linkage levers on the transmission as the person in the truck moves the shift lever (while firmly mashing the breaks) also listen for a distinct "clicking" sound in the transmission as it moves through the gears. Again if the linkage is okay and it sounds like things are moving with the shift leaver then the problem is most likely a worn pump.
