My auto transmission for a Ford 2004 Escape with 2WD only engages in reverse. When problem suddenly showed up i was able to drive car in front drive by engaging 1 or 2. stopped car and all forward mov


I would have it towed to a different shop for a second opinion.
To start at the beginning, if it works in reverse but not drive the linkage is working.
When you put the transmission in low or second you are bypassing most of the sensors and valves. You put it in first or second gear and it stays there.
It could be a long list of things from the valve body to the pump to a solenoid or sensor.
There is a good chance the problem could be fixed without needing an overhaul.
You never take a knife to a gunfight, so you wouldn't have anybody but a transmission shop work on a transmission.
When they recommend an overhaul, they are pulling your trans out and replacing it with someone's rebuilt out of the crate. No worries on their part.

What would cause my 1994 grandam transmission to stop working? the transmission was working fine with no indication of a problem. after stopping on a small incline it would not engage for drive


The transmission needs inspection.It can be gears got stuck up hard due to vehicle parked incline.
May be vehicle needs to be driven on slope for few seconds and then checked.
If can be solenoid issue or gear shift assembly issue.

I hav ea 94 lincoln. It works in reverse. I start out in drive. It is fine from 1st to second gear. It will not go into third or overdrive.


This is a computer shifted transmission, if there is a problem with the electrical shift solenoids the system will set a code. Aamco does this code testing from free, I suggest you have them hook it up and see what shows up in the computers memory.

My transmission slips going through second gear if i get my foot in it just a little bit, and it doesnt always go into reverse. if i shift into reverse and it doesnt shift, i have to shift to neutral then...


this problem is a common failure associated with your shift solenoinds inside your tranny. of course a shop is not gonna tell you this because by the time you wanna get it repaired it is usually too late and have already cause damage to your clutch pack and internal parts, thats the main reason why a shop wont mess with just replacing your shift solenoid (aka valve bodie)

2000 Hyundai elantra transmission delay, reverse going


Did you check the transmission fluid level? If necessary, add fluid. However you probably have a more serious problem. Take the car to a qualified transmission mechanic.

1988 Ford Bronco Transmission Issues


is the idle speed correct? do you shift into second before trying to engage reverse?, is the clutch ok, this is most likely not the trans at all but one of the above issues, the clutch is my guess.

Jetta 2003 6 speed manual transmission problems


There is small chance you problem is with the slave cylinder, or the clutch master cylinder.
Check the brake fluid under the hood in the clutch master cylinder. If it is gone, or low, you may be leaking brake fluid either from the slave cylinder on the transmission, or the fluid could be bypassing the rubber seals inside the master cylinder.
I hope this is what is wrong, as it is much less expensive than having the transmission repaired.
God bless your efforts.

VW Golf 3 jumping out of gears


Sounds like a stripped reverse gear. And for the second gear probally need a new gear (1st 2nd) and the syncros with a new hub. If too much metal from the gears has already made it's way around in the bearings through the transmission oil you might be looking at a new transmission. The Golf 3 generation had many problems with reverse gears. Sorry to be the one to tell you.

No reverse in transmission


Sounds like the transmission is going. In my experience, reverse is usually the first gear to go.
