hi swlilo
first check your transmission fluid level.
to do this first start the car and wait for it to reach normal operating temperature(ie the upper rad hose becomes hot), then with the car parked on a level surface shift the car through each gear slowly twice. check to hear/feel that it is engaging the gears. then remove the dipstick and check the level color and smell of the fluid. If it is low fill it to the proper level a little at a time without overfilling. If it is not bright red/pink color or smells burnt drain and refill the transmission replacing the pan gasket and filter while you have it removed

need to check the pressure of the system, does your pump start running when you open the drivers door?

SOURCE: while driving truck makes a humming sound in drive now no reverse

If you have no reverse then yes it needs to be rebuilt. as far as the whining it could be in one of the differentials. or in trans? just depends on where you hear it

SOURCE: 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.

That red warning light because you started with to much pedal down?
Disconnect battery for 15 minutes.

I have a 91 honda accord with an automatic trans. & when i shift into reverse it refuses to engage & makes a high pitch gear slipping grinding sound ! NOT GOOD ! ,I just replaced the transmission con


Definitely not good. The transmission is slipping internally due to worn gears and clutch packs. It will have to come out for rebuilding, IMO. Have a transmission shop check it out.
Good luck.

def sounds like ur trans is finished,coming apart, best advice to keep looking for a used one online and at some salvage yards near u. its a shame some of these rebuilds can run up to an over 3000 dollars and some of us have no choice but to go w a used unit an take chances. good luck an keep looking their out their.......

87 cutlass no reverse


In older gm vehicles in there automatic transmissions there are indirect clutch bands/gears which operate low and reverse gears. I'd first check your fluid level while it is in park, and the vehicle is running and has reached its normal operating temp. If it's low fill it in small increments and recheck until it is full DO NOT OVERFILL IT or it will break down very quickly. An old remedy for small leaks or tranny starting to slip is to add a little dot 3 brake fluid to help seals expand and to increase viscosity in trans fluid. This is a band aid you would need to rebuild or get a rebuilt trans eventually though

1995 nissan pathfinder...has automatic trans all gears work but reverse...nothing...any ideas


That sounds like you stripped the sun gear for reverse time for a rebuild or new transmission.

Reverse went out on 1978 Chevy pickup


Nothing. Also it will be much cheaper to find a used matching transmission with low (less than 80k miles) than having a shop rebuild the old one. In most cases the used transmission will far outlast the rebuilt one. Check on the web by Googling "used transmissions".

2000 Silverado 4x4 transmision problems 1. Will not go into reverse. 2. High pitched whine when put in gear. 3. When starting from stop, does not shift out of first gear until speed reaches 25 mph and rpm...


Before guessing at transmission problems, check the fluid level (car warmed up, engine running in Park on level ground) and have the PCM scanned for trouble codes FIRST.
Secondly, put a line pressure gauge (or visit a local trans shop) on the pressure test port and go for a drive to verify proper line pressure. Base pressure at idle in P,N,OD should be around 70psi and around 140psi in R. Max line pressure should be at least 190psi at WOT in 1st or 2nd, 225psi is optimum. If base pressure is low, trans or pump is worn out. If max pressure is low, check EPC solenoid. If reverse is slow to engage, and line pressure does not come up to at least 130psi in reverse, replace the boost valve with a Transgo 0.500" boost valve (easy fix in pan)
Possible causes to your transmission issue:
1. Slow, slipping or no reverse: “lo-reverse” clutches are worn out, fluid leak in the reverse apply circuit, or broken sunshell. It is possible to remedy a fluid problem by removing the checkball from its cage in the case in the rear of the trans may help (must remove valvebody), or adding a high-viscosity additive such as Lucas Transmission additive or other seal restorer product. May also have worn boost valve (can replace in the pan).
2.1st and 3rd only, no 2,4 or R; sunshell is fractured or splines are sheared off. R&R. Try not to run or drive the car or further damage could result.
The transmission will default to max line pressure causing the whine you describe.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck.

May also have worn boost valve (can replace in the pan).
Soft shifting, gradual performance degradation: Poor line pressure rise due to leaking boost valve, clogged EPC filter screen, failing EPC solenoid, or worst case: leaky seals throughout. Transgo HD2-C kit fixes first two without removing trans. Seal restorer may fix last problem, but probably R&R. Also try a transmission flush with BG brand products (Firestone stocks it).
No movement in any gear: pump failure, or total loss of fluid. R&R, or refill pan and find the leak. If out of fluid, avoid running the engine until the trans is refilled to avoid pump damage. To check for pump failure, check fluid level with the engine off, then start the engine and recheck fluid level. If level does not go down when engine is running, the pump is broken.
1-2 or 2-3 shift is slow/soft above part throttle: Trans is on its way out. R&R
Good luck and start with checking your transmission fluid level. Thank you for using Fixya

Nissan pulsar 1988 wont go into gear I can put the gear stick in the right gear but does nothing wont reverse or drive, its automatic and has a reconditioned engine in it


try checking your transmission oil (i had the same problem but after $30 it was fixed) it might had drained out. if your transmission oil is fine then consult a mechanic preferebly an automatic transmission specialist. may be your transmission needs a rebuild.
