No,you need to rebuild the trans,it is burnt,that means it is done,overheated

You need to pull the trans and completely disassemble, to do the band,so where did that come from?

Bands are installed,adjusted once and that is it. Never need constant adjustment,no wear,just burn up, along with everything else.

Now you got to hope, you got no hard part damage.

Classic not go into drive I clean the linkage. going to buy the filter kit today. car was stole month ago I got it wont go into drive anymore. Is this why can drive in reverse


Filter and fluid isn't going to fix this problem. Could be the clutch band or forward clutches. Either is a transmission rebuild or replace. Smell the transmission fluid. Smell burnt?

What is wrong with my transmission goes into forward fine but reverse quit without any warning


The reverse bands can break without leaving a burning smell. The instant you put it in reverse, there is a sudden torque as the slack comes out of the drive train, so when it comes tight it can break without slipping or any other warning.

Transmission is not shifting in 1 or 2nd only. park is good, reverse good, neutral good, motor is not hot, fluid smell and looks good


when your fluid starts to turn dark and you'll smell the fluid,you will know if it's burnt,this happens when the bands gets loose and out of adjustment,as your coming to a stop with your foot off the accelerator pedal and the vehicle starts to slow down the band will help the transmission to slow as well as the vehicle,but if the bands are loose and not tight enough,your clutch's will try to slow the vehicle,when this happens the clutch's will not hold and start to slip,and this will burn the clutch's as well as the fluid,after this keeps happening the clutch's will start to slip when you start to take off from a stop,and will burn the clutch's even more,now your in need of a transmission rebuilt,so when you notice the fluid starting to smell and turn from red to dark red or black,the best thing to do is take it to a transmission shop and have the fluid and filter replaced,and have them adjust the bands,if you try this at home the fluid change should not be a problem but the band adjustment is a different story,if you don't follow step by step and tighten the band's too tight you can break the band's and that will make a for sure thing that you will need a rebuild,so just because the fluid gets burnt doesn't mean you need a rebuild unless you have driven it to long.

Will not go into reverse.


Hi, have you checked the fluid level on this ? If the fluid smells burnt and is brownish in color most likely the first and reverse clutch has burned out, or the rear reverse band may need adjusted.

If your fluid is a mid to dark brownish color it may need rebuilt and if it smells burnt also.

The reverse and first gear shift work off the same clutch pack inside the transmission and off the reverse band as well. Also if by chance the reverse band spring is broken or the piston push rod has broken will cause loss of reverse too. The forward gears will still work but may get sluggish and take time to engage over time.

You need to have the transmission re built its time. If the transmission smells burnt it means the bands are fried and now the seals willl be gone also.

It seems like your transmission bands are slipping, it may be time for a transmission overhaul or you coiuld be low on fluid. Check your transmission fluid, if it is a pinkish color it is clean, if it is a dark red or black color and if you smell it it, it smells burnt you may have some damage to your transmission.

Well in order for it to be broken, I think you would have noticed while driving it, a breaking loud bang and it would have left you stranded at that very point. But from what it sounds like to me by your description is that you were just driving it and then it just disappeared. Now if during that 1/4 mile you noticed it was slipping or smelling like burnt wiring before it stopped working, it cuold be that it burnt up inside.(clutches and bands etc.) What I suggest you do is pull the dipstick and smell the fluid on the tip. If it smells like burnt wiring...BINGO...Its burnt. If it doesnt smell burnt, what is the fluid level? When was the last time you've had a tranny tune up? If you haven't had your tranny serviced at the specified intervals by the makers, your transmission could have went out due to lack of fluid circulation caused by a clogged filter. Now, a clogged filter can also cause your converter to go out too. Does your engine seem to run at a higher RPM along with an unpleasant vibration? start with smelling your fluid.
