Reverse not working at all...still goes forward with some issues.

If the trans fluid is low and causing the reverse gear not to work, should I change the filter too, could get get clogged up...sometimes also, when I go into second gear the rpm's go high and I have to slow down and then it clicks into gear?? what could cause this also, besides the reverse not working at all. Thanks

Sounds like you have some internal problems. Depending on mileage, you're probably looking at a rebuild. Automatic transmissions use clutch packs and bands to engage planetary gear sets that are in constant mesh...there is not clicking into gear.

THE FLUID LEVEL IS CHECK FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE TRANSMISSION PAN,YOU NEED A SUCTION GUN TO REFILL IT.THE INTERNAL HEX IS THE FILLER SPOT.CHECK WITH A DEALER BEFORE YOU GO FURTHER.

I would but imagine that since it goes into reverse, the shift lever is connected to the transmission. Makes sense. But won't go into forward gears with the selector/shift lever. Your either very low on trans fluid or you've burned the clutch packs out from being low on trans fluid. Only makes sense.

My 1993 ford tempo 2.3L wants to slip in reverse but changed trans fluid and was very clean and works fine in all forward gears. Is trans going out or could it be an adjustment?


be careful when changing gears into reverse and be careful while in reverse and your transmission should last but if you ride on that gear to much your transmission will fail and you will no longer have reverse in your vehicle even if you have all other gears working

I have a 1998 Oldsmobile Bravada auto trans drive works fine but no reverse


Are you sure you have all 4 forward gears? Most of the time a no reverse condition also means 1st and 3rd only.No 2nd or 4th.If you dont have all the forward gears as i suspect , the reaction shell is stripped or broken.If you do have all the forward gears then these are the two most common reasons you do not have reverse.1 reverse input clutches are damaged or burnt 2 forward cltches have slipped to the point they are welded together causing a mechanical bind in reverse and also causing the transmission to pull forward in neutral.Let me know if i can help.Good Luck.

I changed transmision fluid of toyota sienna 1998,after ten days reverse gear not working only forward gears working,what is cause,no check light on dash board.


Changing the fluid will never harm your trans unless you do not fill it back up.

Reverse is all hydrolic. There is no electrical that could cause it. If you have park and forward, you don't have a lincage problem.

As much as I feel for you, (I satarted rebuilding transmissions in the 80's) you will have to get it rebuilt.

Sorry

Car will not go move in forward gears


You are going to need a Rebuild on this Tranny. Unless you know how to Rebuild a Tranny, I would have it done at a Tranny Shop. If you get the Clutches in the Wrong order During Rebuild it could Crack the Housing on the Tranny and cause a Bigger Problem. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
