    OK thank you so much for your input. I attempted what you suggested and to no success. When I move the shift arm with the lickage disconected int reverse the wheels attempt to move maybe a 1/4 of an inch then they lock, move the lickage to neutral and they are still locked, shift to any other gear and they drive forward fine. Do you have any other ideas they would be greatly appreciated, I have read online it may have someting to do with either a vacum leak or a sensor, do either of those sound like a possibility???

I have disconnected the shift linkage and attempted shifting the car this way with the rear wheels off of the ground and it does the same thing, so it is not the shift linkage that needs to be adjusted. Does anyone have any other ideas, they will be greatly appreciated.

If the shift linkage is disconnected and still not shifting.Then check the motor mounts.Also check the rubber bushings on motor mount.If the bushings are worn out then it can be the reason for the problem.The other possibility can be worn out clutch and clutch plate assembly causing this problem. ------- Also other possibility can be faulty sleeve (selector).Check the gears,if you see flat spots on the gears on the reverse side.Then that is preventing it from sliding into reverse. -------

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation

When you put your car in reverse it will not go in reverse but in drive it is okay Is that a serious and costly job, and, yes you need to get a new transmission, because somehow you burnt out your reverse so it wont move in reverse. So you will probably have to get a new one.

Hope this helps.

Check your shift linkage, it seems it needs adjustment. On the driver side of the transmission, coming down from the steering column, there is a rod connected to the transmission shifter, disconnect it and manually perform the shifting to make sure it is not stuck. Then lift the rear wheels a couple of inches from the floor, have somebody start the vehicle and step on the brake while you perform the shifts, if the problem is gone, turn engine off, reconnect the rod and adjust as needed. Keep me posted

50 horse 4 stwont go into reverse gear due to shaft problems


the drive shaft just drives a pinion gear in the prop box that drives to gears that spin in opposite directions all the time
by selecting forward with the selector rod , a dog gear is moved forward to mesh with one gear that is turning or moves the other way to engage the other gear that is turning
that is the forward or reverse action for the prop
if you have forward but no reverse the it is not a drive shaft problem but a selector rod adjustment that is not moving the dog far enough to engage the running gear

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.

Bought a 1990 Bronco II from one of my troops and somehow he drove it over here. It's a manual transmission as well. But once I put it in first gear, it feels like something is stopping it going forward....


It sounds like you may have a brake caliper sticking (if the issue is really coming from the front). Does it pull in one direction? One way to check is to jack the front end up and try to spin each tire by hand. They should turn relatively freely. Another possibility, and more likely from your description, is that the rear emergency / parking brake may be frozen. Drum brakes, by nature, do a better job of holding the vehicle from rolling forward. If your emergency / parking brake is engaged, either frozen or inadvertently left on, I would expect the symptoms you describe- moving in reverse, but not forward. You can check this the same way- jack up the rear end of the vehicle, put it in neutral, and try spinning the rear tires by hand.

Assuming your vehicle is a 4x4, a less likely scenario is that something's gone awry in the transfer case, front differential, axles, hubs.

Good luck.

Check engine light came on today honda accord v6 2003 at 97k miles. car makes a thump sound when put into reverse hot or cold. sometimes when i turn and accelerate i can reproduce this feeling moving...


Take your car to a mechanic or your local auto parts superstore and have them read/scan the codes for the reason for the check engine light. A good place to start.

95 mazda 626 automatic transmition....will not reverse


Check you transmission fluid level and if it's not your transmission, I'm thinking that your brake shoe lineing in the rear brakes may have separated and is jamming up aginst the drums when your trying to back up. Sorry can't halp you with any more, good luck and start with that and hope it help's.

Car stops moving in reverse gear


Sounds like the car is just slipping out of gear. Keep your hand on the shifter when you back up next time. See if you can feel the shifter move when the car comes out of gear. If the shifter moves up when it happens keep pressure on the shifter holding it back like you dont want it to move forward. And of course if the shifter moves back when it comes out of gear, put forward pressure on the shifter so it doesnt slip out. This might work for now but but i know i wouldnt want to spen 700 for that ****. Let me know how it goes.
