1st is it manual or automatic? i'm guessing manual. you have 2 rods that go to the transmission from your shifter,,one could have came off or is binding against the transmission. you'll need to go under the car to see which.. always make sure the car is on jack stands!!! have someone to shift the gears while you look to see where it's binding or if a shifter rod hes come off. i hope this helps you!!

Why would my '02 Olds Alero suddenly not shift into reverse?


My guess is the ignition needs to be replaced. check to see if theres a recall for it. 2 years ago on my 2002 alero I found a recall for the flasher switch which was causing intermediate directionals and 2 more for the computer

2006 Chevrolet uplander will not shift out of reverse and wont start now


The shift cable BUSHING is bad. You can go to advance auto, Napa or Oriellys and it's only $13 for 2 of them. I got mine from bushing fix.com and it's thicker than the rest but the others will work. Take the air filter box off and the 2 13mm bolts holding the shift cable to the transmission off and you pull the bracket out to you. Literally took me 20 minutes. I had to do mine today.

I have a 97 f-250 7.3 with a manual trans. and it wants to jump out of reverse if I dont go to 1st gear and then to rev. first.


Sounds like the shift lever is not coming completely out of 2nd gear. So, by shifting into 1st gear, you recenter the shift lever. You can confirm this by going under the truck and moving the 1st - 2nd lever on the side of the transmission with your hand. If the shifter goes into reverse after you manually recenter the 1-2 lever, then you need to correct the problem that prevents the "normal" recentering of the 1-2 shift lever.

Possibilities are: Bent shift rod; worn shifter; worn shift rod at connection to shift lever on transmission.

I can't shift into reverse. All other 5 gears are


My VW is not shifting into reverse at all; I think a certain person was driving and mistakenly pressed the gear shifter down for all gears--reverse is the only gear you press the shifter down first in. Doesn't grind, 1 2 3 and 4 work but no reverse no reverse lights.
I've read several complicated (can't see scenario's) posts on screens and linkage and a cable fixed one guys problem but still no solutions.

Most likely an internal gearbox problem, but I would first check the shift linkage at the gearbox end, see if you can disconnect it and change out of reverse from there.

1990 Nissan P/u with AT - no Reverse and shifts hard 1 to 2


If you are going to just replace the valve body then there is no need to remove the transmission. All other repairs will require removal of the transmission from the vehicle.
