Question about 1999 Saturn SL

1 Answer

All gears work except reverse won't work. Check

My car was driving perfectly fine and the check engine light came on. Still seemed to be driving and less than an hour after the light came on I parked the car and came back to it, and the car wouldn't reverse. All other gears worked except reverse. It is an automatic. Any ideas? It's a Saturn 99 SL2

Take the car to AutoZone, they will check your ECM for the code using a OBD II scanner that is causing the problem for free, once you have that code the problem can be diagnosed easier.

2001 ford taurus runs good but will not move when put into gear.


sounds like you have a manual transmission. ?
Worn Clutch plates will give these symptoms
The clutch plates rub together and provide connection between the gear box and the drive shaft if not worn.
Also check the cable for the clutch is not loose and needs a surclip to hold it in at the firewall.
Check if Hydraulic Clutch that there is adequate clutch fluid if low might have leaking clutch master cyclinder

I have experienced this in a car I owned.
Not a lot of fun . Resulted in needing a Tow to repair garage and new clutch was AUD $1200 a couple of years ago.

1990 toyota camry wont go into gear or slips out


Could be a long list of things.
Its too late for a filter change. Doing that now would probably make matters worse.
The trans uses electric solenoids and a pump to apply pressure to the clutches. So either could be faulty given the age and mileage.
I'm not sure if the shifting problem is connected to the shift indicator lights problem.
You may need to take it to a trans shop to find out for sure. And they will not want to touch it with that many miles on it.
A regular mechanic might be able to do a pressure test on it to at least find out if it is the pump or not.

Car won't go into gear, only neutral


Too much trans fluid would not prevent it from going into gear. Do you have a check engine light on? This is probably going to be expensive. Get it to a transmission shop.

I had the same thing happen to me. It was a sensor in my gear shifter. It was under warranty so I got it fixed. The dealer had to help me fix it.
