It's not a switch or hoses. Make sure your fluid level is correct; it should be measured when hot (like too hot to touch the dipstick.) Assuming you have fluid of the correct sort and amount:
If it is a three-speed, the trans is bad. If it is a four-speed, the trans is almost certainly bad, but there is a slight chance of a computer malfunction - computers shift the 4-speed trannies. The 3-speeds are tougher and cheaper, but generally speaking give worse fuel economy.

Izuzu rodeo drives forward on reverse gear


redux. (A/T trans answer not STICK SHIFTED manuals)
no years stated
no transmission stated, auto or stick.

stuck in Reverse.
linkage checks are first.

the trans has lever on the side
called the Manual valve.
it that lever does not go to DRIVE,
then there will be no drive.
there is a cable from the Shift selector to that
transmission side lever.

inspect these parts for proper movement
no damage, not slipping cable, etc.
only you can do that.
or your mechanic.

1989 dodge dynasty v6, fwd, transaxle 3 speed auto, good condition, experiencing shift problem, doesnot want to shift into passing gear, sometimes it does, right now it doesn't, any takers


most auto trans don't shift into reverse when low. Reverse takes the most fluid of all the gears.
Check for a bad shift solenoid or wires to and from that circuit. Most trans-axles have them now.

Car will not drive in reverse, does not pick up speed when driving forward


TRY REPLACING THE TRANSMISSION FILTER LOCATED INSIDE THE TRANS. THE TRANS PAN MUST BE REMOVED TO ACCESS THE FILTER. A GALLON OF FLUID WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED AS WELL AFTER FILTER HAS BEEN DONE. THIS PROCEDURE WILL HELP THE OIL PUMP IN THE TRANS TO GET MORE FLUID AND HELP IT TO SHIFT GEARS. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR AN HONEST RATING TOO. BEST OF LUCK.

Mazda 626 auto tranny engages slow switching from reverse


Sounds like a pump issue, check line pressure. If it does have a bad trans pump it can be changed with out removing the trans. But also check the fluid level if you haven't already.

Will not shift


The most common cause of Dodge transmissions going into limp-in mode most of the time are the input and output speed sensors. These are relatively inexpensive to replace, and will most likely take care of your problem, provided there are no defect wiring issues, or internal transmission problems. Still, the best way to handle the situation would probably be to go to your nearest dealer. At least armed with information, no one can take advantage of you. The sensors are usually about $60-$80 for both, and the dealers will usually charge about 1-1.5 hrs. labor to change them.

Reverse engages HARD!!!


Check for trans codes then I would suggest a fluid change if there are no trouble codes, many times these kinds of problems are caused by a little piece of dirt causing a shift solenoid to stick.
