If you pull into a parking spot by turning into it, there may be bound up tension in tranny from the differential. mine hates to go into reverse unless i pull through or straight in to a spot.

1999 Pontiac Firebird manual transmission. Reverse pops out of gear.


Check the linkage first. They put plastic grommets on the arms. They disintegrate. After that, it is internal. They also put plastic tabs on the shift forks. Could be a bad gear.

When i put my 95 jetta in reverse it grinds and pops out of gear


Reverse or first gear are both about the same gear ratio, low, to be more specific, and getting into those gears, although you're only having a problem with one,is an indication that the clutch is getting worn and not throwing out enough. This is gennerally caused by the fingers on the pressure plate wearing and warping over the years. I can only assume you've never had to replace the clutch so far correct? Considering the vehicles 14th birthday is just passed it may be time.

pop off the distributer cap and dry it out well. Put it back on and it should work. This happened to my 97 jetta too...also if I go through large puddles at a quick speed this may happen too. There isn't good electrical contact with the moisture.
