Is it a manual or automatic transmission?

On the automatics the two cables that interconnect above the transmission need to be set perfect for the transmission to pump pressure and engage the transmission.

Set it so the backside is fairly tight and the carburator isn't loose to the throttle valve assembly. Then loosen the front cable and pull it towards yourself until tight and finger tighten the adjustment bolts.

Now shift it into Neutral. Loosen the front and back nuts on the heavy shifting rod and center them again. Tighten them up. If you loose reverse loosen the front cable a tiny bit and you're done.

    At least that's what they say in the direction guide. It's probably halfway right. I'm still sorting mine out right now.

I have a 06 ford focus with automatic transmission when it gets cold reverse don't work until you drive it about 2 miles or so drive always works good when it is above 40 reverse works good also

okay your transmission is either bad or something is wrong with the gearing. Sometimes the teeth that make the gears turn chip and it slips and wont let you in reverse. But when they warm up the metal expands and allows your vehicle to go into reverse. Hope this helps ;)

No reverse sometimes geo metro a/t

The accelator cable is "Y" shaped. one side goes to the carb and the other to the tranmission. If you have the carb.side too tight it will give you the problem that you are having.
