Possible fault in the gear box, advice the job be handled by Pontiac or experienced pros.
The possibility of the gear box selectors being damaged/worn out , the counter wheels damaged is a possibility.
If the vehicle had done good mileage an overhauling is recommended if you are going to keep it for a while.

My ford telstar tx5 V6 idles correctly and revs clean when not in gear. When driving there are deadspots in the throttle


there is an idea that when it runs good in reverse but not in forward gears , there is a problem in bad engine mounts that is allowing the wiring to make a bad circuit for the electronics
could be a loose /bad connection for the cam/ crank sensors, injector operation or ignition control module
in forward gear , the engine reacts to the torque application and that would pull on the harness
when in reverse the reaction is opposite and not affect the wires

What could the problem be with 1999 villager wont go forward or reverse?


I forget the name, but it could be the shift connecttion. It the connection point behind the shifter in the car and the transmission. The port disconnected mine in my car cause they couldn't figure out how to shift it. It basically put the car into nuetral. No forward no reverse. But engine runs fine.

2001 Hyundai Tiburon will not go in reverse, but drives fine otherwise.


Hi There,

As demonstrated in the test drive of the vehicle, the Tiburons gearstick has a little groove just passed the crown. Starting in nuetral - lift groove up and put it into the reverse position (where gear 6 is normally) by doing this lift you take the gear box to a second level. to move out of reverse simply take the gearstick and return it to nuetral then into first gear, you are now able to drive forward.

Hope this helps,

Cheers Buckaroo,
Chris.

Car does not drive forward but works in reverse


Sad to say but your automatic transmission has bit the dust.

97 neon pops into nuetral when I hit 25 mph....


Sounds to me like you are having a transmission problem.  Basically your transmission has gone into "limp" mode which is why you can drive your car up to 25mph but no further.  Basically your transmission has limited it self to reverse, neutral, and 1st gear.  Take your car to a transmission shop and have it diagnosed.  Often a simple flush and fill will fix the problem, but you might need a new transmission.
