Hi,

Has the transmission fluid ever been changed?

I am sorry to inform you that more likely, you transmission system might need complete overhauling. I have seen many cases where there is an issue with rear gears.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

You're out of transmission fluid. Put in a quart where you pull the dip-stick out from and start the engine. Drive it a minute, check the fluid while running, put more in if needed.

Why would a vehicle in reverse move forward


The question is a little vague but I think I know what your referring to. All modern automatic transmissions have torque converters. This is the device that connects the engine to the transmission. All vehicle manufacturers like the trans to be nice and smooth shifting. That's great but it does come with some minor drawbacks. If you are facing slightly down hill and you put your car in reverse but do not step on the gas slightly I can guarantee that you will indeed roll forward. You can eliminate that issue by holding your left foot on the brake while you shift into reverse. Then, as soon as you feel the trans engage, gently depress the gas pedal with your right foot and it will eliminate that forward roll problem.

May need to have the transmission flushed.

the car,run the car and switch gears while someone listens
for the sound for exact location.

Transmission will not go into reverse. Sometimes it will and sometimes it will not. Drives well drive and reverse once in gear.


It sounds like the shift lever is out of adjustment by a small amount. Try moving the shift lever a little bit forward & backward from it's normal position to see if this is the case.

What engine? Rear wheel drive ?Sounds like shift linkage or cable out of adjustment slightly. Have a look at where cable or rod attaches to transmission for adjustment. If not sure of what your looking for get back to me with info.

1994 Toyota Camry automatic. All forward no reverse


are you sure it is first gear it is making when in 1. In park does the car lock up if you try to push it with the handbrake off. If not your problem is adjustment of the cable i.e. although the lever is in reverse the gearbox isn't.
