This is very bad You need to check your warranty becuse this is a Big Fix that will cost a lot of money, possibly a new transmission. If it's still under warranty, please have it towed to a dealer or repair station that accepts your warranty. Definitely not a do it yourself repair especially for a novice.
Troubleshooting- It may just be your linkage so, try playing with the shifter and moving it between gears but, MAKE SURE YOU KEEP YOUR FOOT ON BRAKE slowly releasing your foot to check and see if you can shift into something besides R or N or P. Please be careful!.

Izuzu rodeo drives forward on reverse gear


redux. (A/T trans answer not STICK SHIFTED manuals)
no years stated
no transmission stated, auto or stick.

stuck in Reverse.
linkage checks are first.

the trans has lever on the side
called the Manual valve.
it that lever does not go to DRIVE,
then there will be no drive.
there is a cable from the Shift selector to that
transmission side lever.

inspect these parts for proper movement
no damage, not slipping cable, etc.
only you can do that.
or your mechanic.

I have a 1998 holden jackaroo SE automatic petrol car and it starts,reverse but when u put it in drive it doesn't drive if you press on the winter drive it goes so what's causing the problem?


Get a trained person to check the transmission. If it goes backwards but only goes forward in winter mode then there is a trans fault because auto's generally pull away in 2nd gear in winter mode to reduce wheelspin.

Auto trannsmission, shifts nice in reverse but feels like it slips when trying to go in forward gears, would transmission flush help or is it internal?


reverse is the last gear to go out in a auto trans when the clutch packs are wore out. It would be a internal problem.

98 vw beetle wont go in reverse


I have a 1998 and I just confronted the same problem. It seems to take like 1 gear in reserve and like 2 gear in 1 gear. Any thoughts? I don't really it should be the transmission since it still works going forward in 2 different gears. Thanks.

it sounds like your automatic transmission quit his job. How much miles are on the clock? If more than 150.000 and you pulled trailers, climb mountains etc. this will be the first choice. Let the engine idle, push the brakes and check if the car will go in any gear. If this will happen only in reverse gear, your auto trans need to be replaces. You can use a rebuilt auto trans.

It will catch and then let go in first gear and in reverse


the tran is either low on fluid or more likely the forward reverse clutch pack in the auto trans is worn out, in that case you will need an overhaul. My experience: 20 years in a Ford dealer
