04 Envoy won't go into reverse. When put in reverse just sits there. When put into neutral starts to roll forward as if in gear. It drives in neutral as well as the other gears.

The linkage from the selector in the car to the selector on the transmission needs to be checked. This is a physical problem and inspection should reveal what needs to be easily adjusted or straightened out to fix it.

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.

Rolls royce silver spirit 1982 can't move as been told stuck in gear. Turns over, fuel pump clicking. Been told this means working fine. Started up after first time in 10 years, been dry stored. ...


If it is like other cars with automatics, the neutral safety switch won't allow starting in gear. The park/neutral switch would not allow current to pass through to the starter motor from the ignition switch if it is not in park or neutral. This is a safety feature, and probably universal.
Pull one of the spark plug wires from a spark plug and check for spark while the engine is cranking over. If no spark, the ignition system needs diagnosing. I have no idea where to go from there on a Rolls Royce- it would be rather primitive compared to modern electronics, but then on a rolls, well you get my drift.

My 99 Cavalier will shift into gear but will not release the wheels to roll forward or reverse even in Neutral.


FixYa is a site for helping people solve their problem. Your statement has so many factual non-sequiters, I connot understand the problem. So it will shift into gear but won't move even in neutral...??...Is your emergency hand-brake off?
Please restate your question and provide clarification.

Car only starts in reverse and only drives in neutral


Sounds like a cable to the transmission is not adjusted up right, and/or the neutral safety switch is not adjusted right, if this applies to your Toyota Corolla.
