Typical FWD GM transmission issue, the transmisson will have to be rebuilt. You could try a fluid flush and filter change but there are only 2 discs pack for reverse. Which makes them fail very easily

How do i trouble shoot automatic transmission that shifts from park to reverse with the gear shift but the car will not move?


Sounds like the shift cable is off the transmission under the hood. Raise the hood and check to see if the cable is moving the linkage going into the transmission when the shift lever is moved in the car. Be sure to have park brake on.

Broken Engine Mount. Get someone to look under it as you shift from forward to reverse with the brake on of course to see exactly what one is broken.

I have a 2005 Dodge 1500 with a 5.7 Hemi. when I start out in forward or reverse it makes a popping noise sometimes and you can feel it shaking.


Just a guess, but it sounds like the U-joint on your drive shaft could be going…With a cool vehicle of course, you should be able to lay under the vehicle and physically grab the drive shaft and turn it back and forth and hear a clang or feel the looseness etc…You won’t hear the pop till the torque is applied...It’s not an expensive job, of terribly difficult to repair yourself…tg

Squealing noise when in reverse


Is the noise under the hood? or where?

If under the hood, most likely the engine has a bad motor mount. The engine will "twist" slightly to one direction when driving forward and "twist" in the opposite direction when you drive in reverse.

When it is twisted (in reverse) an engine pulley or fanbelt is scraping on some plastic part, or whatever, and making the noise.

If not under the hood, it may be one of the front brake pads that have a "worn brake pad" sensor. The sensor is an L-shaped piece of metal that scrapes the rotor when the brake pad backing gets too close to the rotor, hence worn brake pads.

If the noise is somewhere else, maybe another "expert" has a suggestion.

Please post more information... Thank you.

My 2005 ford escape has a terrible squeek coming from under the gas pedal. It becomes worse as I accelerate. I can't find any type of linkage to lube.


there is nothing under the floor of the pedal will make that terrible squeak sound. have your belt check make sure they are tight and not slipping, it will also make that loud squeak sound if it slips. go to auto parts store and purchase a can of WD40 and spray it on all the pulley under the hood. have the engine off while spraying the pulleys. don't worry if it get on other parts of the engine. Common problems with pulleys squeaking on many vehicle.
