I have a 98 Tacoma 2wd automatic w/2.4 truck runs excellent,shifts perfect and does not slip any going forward,but if I park and have to back out it takes a second to engage reverse but it will engage


You do have a problem then. Slow reverse engagement can be the sign of a failing transmission. Use reverse as little as possible under as light a load as possible. If you have never changed the fluid and filter in the transmission do that as well, it may help. Also verify the fluid level is correct hot fluid check.

02 explorer will not go forward or reverse


Hi there:
I would suspect it is the shifter not the cable or the transmission to rule out the trans from under the explorer on the drivers side near the pan is the shift linkage disconnect it by prying the ball and socket apart and rotate the lever through the gears to the rear is park then one forward is reverse then N,D,3,2,1 when pushing the lever into park it will feel spring loaded if the parking pawl is not perfectly lined up this will line up if it rolls a little bit DANGER DO NOT LET VEHICLE ROLL OVER YOU.

Hi,

I had the same problem with my transmission and the issue was with the Revolution Sensor on the transmission box.

Replaced it myself and the issue is permanently resolved.

Reverse workes sometimes


Is it a manual or automatic transmission?

On the automatics the two cables that interconnect above the transmission need to be set perfect for the transmission to pump pressure and engage the transmission.

Set it so the backside is fairly tight and the carburator isn't loose to the throttle valve assembly. Then loosen the front cable and pull it towards yourself until tight and finger tighten the adjustment bolts.

Now shift it into Neutral. Loosen the front and back nuts on the heavy shifting rod and center them again. Tighten them up. If you loose reverse loosen the front cable a tiny bit and you're done.

Unable to remove key from ignition 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix


The ignition has an interlock that will not let you turn the key all the way to OFF until the transmission is in park.
This is done via a sensor either in the transmission itself, or on the shifter.

With the car off, step on the brake and shift from Park to Reverse, then back in to Park. You should hear a faint "click" as the interlock engages. If not, then your sensor (switch) may have failed.

The weld on the manual lever is known to break loose. First, with the wheels off the ground, with the lever in the park position, does the drive shaft lock in park? If yes or no sometimes, drop the trans pan. I bet the nut on the lever camd loose.

1780 code


P1780 Park/Neutral Position Switch Malfunction (Only For A/T)
This code is related to a malfunction with the park neutral position switch, it's located on the transmission.
It maybe easier to get a Chilton manual from the autoparts store to locate the sensor/switch. The book runs about $20.
Replacing the switch/sensor may resolve the reverse light problem also.
