My 96 ford mustang v8 m/t wont shift out of reverse.is my transmission done? it happened before but after a couple min of messing around it popped out and was fine for a month


It could possibly be loose linkage where it connects to the transmission. Block the wheels on the passenger side and jack up the driver side of the car, putting jack stands under the front and back.Using a flashlight or drop light, inspect the linkage for loose connections or bent arms. If nothing found, try to manually move the linkage at the transmission. There is a possibility of bent or broken linkage inside the transmission, but that is an involved repair best suited for a shop.

I have 1992 ford crown victoria that doesn't shift into reverse most especially when it's warm. i've had fluid changed. fluid is reddish now. is there an adjustment? sometimes seems like i can mess with...


Fluid color don't matter. Your cable or shifting linkage may have slipped or is slipping. #1 Hold brake pedal down and move shift lever very slow around the reverse indicator. When reverse activates note were indicator is located. #2 Test the other gear indicators at the proper speeds(MPH). No problems with #2-linkage problem. Problem with both-go get a six pack. Good Luck.

Instead of reverse the car will go forward


Either your linkage is off (check by trying to start in neutral.If it doesn't start this is the prob either adjust or sometimes you have to get a new one.

The truck transmission will not stay in reverse. You must hold the shifter in position for the transmission to stay in reverse. They are not any othe rshifting issues. What would cause this & what...


why are you guys telling him to check his shift cable when this vehicle uses a hydraulic clutch? it's likely 1) hydraulics are leaking or 2) bad synchros. try replacing the hydraulics and clutch first. if that doesn't work out, you may need your ****** rebuilt.

My ford f250 goes into reverse sometimes, other times it doesn't move at all, drive works fine. Any ideas?


Check the linkage. Set the parking brake, and examine the transmission where the linkage connects to the actuator on the transmission, and have somebody operate the shift lever. Take note if the transmission is going into reverse or not and if the actuator on the transmission is always going to the same spot.

If this test does not reveal a problem, disconnect the linkage from the actuator, and move the actuator by hand to the reverse position. you should feel it fall into the reverse position. If it does fall into the reverse position, and the transmission fails to go into reverse, then take it to a transmission shop
