If it is an automatic it sounds like a sprag gear or more than likely the hydraulic governor. Some of your more friendly transmission shops will sell you a governor for about $20. If it's your sprag gear you might as well have the transmission rebuilt.

If it's a standard, sounds like it may be your pressure plate may be shot.

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.

Why wont my 96 honda accord go into reverse it is a stick shift


With the engine off, can you put it in reverse? Can you put the clutch in and keep it in reverse, then start it, and it moves back? If you can, but can't get it into reverse again with the engine running, either the clutch isn't adjusted properly, or the clutch has oil on it and is dragging. Reverse has no syncro's, those are the things in the transmission that help it shift. All the forward gears have syncro's so they can kind of tolerate when the clutch isn't right, they will still go into gear. But reverse needs the clutch to work properly.

I have a 96 Taurus that will do reverse all day long but won't go forward. It did move a little while the fluid was cool but when the fluid gets hot it will not move forward at all. Changed the filter...


If the fluid level is full and it will go in reverse but not forward then I would say that you most likely have an internal mechanical problem that would require removing and repairing the transmission. It's possible that a clutch pack, seal, planetary, or other mechanical item has failed. It would be a good idea to contact a local transmission repair facility and have them check it out to be sure but I strongly suspect that it needs to come out and be repaired. Good luck, hope this helps!

Hi On driving a Suzuki Vitara JLX 96 P Reg


Sounds like a clutch problem to me.
So, with the engine off, can you select all gears? If yes, your gearbox is probably OK.
And now with the engine idling, can you select any gears with out crunching? If this is difficult, then try this next test in an area where movement forward or backwards won't be a problem.
With the engine OFF, foot ON the clutch, the handbrake OFF, and in 1st gear, start the car. BE READY TO TURN IT OFF.
If the car moved forward as you cranked the engine, then your clutch is not adjusted properly or has worn out. That is more-than-likely the smell you got before - burnt clutch disc from it slipping.
You can drive it, but every time you want to start off, you'll have to turn the engine off, select 1st then start the engine. Accelerate slowly, making sure the revs don't rise faster that you're speeding up, and change gear by judging engine revs between gears.
Don't keep driving it as it is, as you WILL have gearbox problems if you don't fix the clutch.

No forward movement but reverse works fine. Help?


More than likely the forward clutches are burnt,causing the no forward movement problem.Remove the transmission dipstick and smell the fluid,if it smells like burnt coffee then you need the transmission rebuilt.

94 tauras AT once warmed up trans will drop out gear at a stop


This is a common problem. You have a cracked forward clutch piston. Ford made this part out of aluminum. The replacements are steel. But you have to disassemble the transmission to install it. ( I know you said Rev too, In the AXODE trans, the forward clutch is on in 1st and reverse)

No reverse after rebuild on 4L60E Transmission from 1995 GMC Sono


There isn't a modulator on this trans as it is electronic

You can have first gear going forwrd but no reverse. It is possible. The low/ reverse clutch isn't needed to go forward.
