Make sure the car is warmed up to operation temp and then check the transmission fluid level to make sure its full and fill if needed .... Does all forward gears not work try reving the motor some to get it to kick in the torque converter could be the problem or a broken gear.....but if it worked fine when it was parked I would bet on just some sticky valves in the transmission ...Good luck hope this helps some

I have a 1989 nissan sentra automatic that wont go into reverse but it gos foward fine


Hi there,
if you are driving your vehicle forward and not in reverse this means that your transmission reverse has failed, which can be caused by many things, one being the clutches, they may be burned, and can cause this problem to happen, so you will need to replace the entire transmission, please check a reputable mechanic for repairs.
