Check the linkage from the tranny, is it an automatic tranny ?, make sure the shifter cable is moveing in and out when you shift gears, if it moves both ways you might have to adjust the linkage again as it could have slipped, hope this helps.

2001 hyundai elantra goes in2 reverse but won't go backwards all other gears r perfect


Most automatic transmissions have a separate belt for reverse and all forward gears, The reverse belt is commonly lighter duty that the forward belt (some Chryslers were affected so much it was advised to not shift into reverse until the engine had warmed up and the automatic choke idled down) Thus your car would be in "reverse" but with no motion getting to the gears.

Problem shifting from forward to reverse on any slight angle hangs up


Try shifting to second gear and then into reverse, this stops the gear motion and aids in the shift.

1998 tranny problem. Feels like it is locked in forward gear even in reverse or nutral.no1 or 2 gears either. But every once in a while it works properly. What is the maybe solution?


A/t problems.
lets back up, (no pun)
the car moves forward in reverse on flat ground?
you need to stated the symptoms much more clear,.
pretend we cant drive it?
what does each location of the gear selector do.
what car do in each mode.

my wild guess (useless as cold beans) is the shift cable system is bad. (cable, and clips on ends)
all it takes is looking, at both ends,. to see if it really does shift. right.

Motion sensor


No, the rear sensing system won't signal if you are in any gear except reverse. The wiring for the module is connected so that it turns on when you put the car in reverse. (This assumes the sensors haven't failed. If they are dirty, they can sometimes signal when an object isn't there.) Some newer cars have blind spot monitors that indicate an object approaching from behind and to the side; these don't indicate an object directly behind the car.

I hope this helps.

I have a 1990 GMC RALLY VAN 3500. When I put the van in any forward gear it seems as though the emergency brake is on. There is force on the engine as though it is trying to turn the transmission but no...


when you say you checked the rear end for problems and things appeared good did you check the rear end internally to see if there is a broken gear tooth or metal in the differential oil.i`ve one were this was the problem(a broken gear) that would get caught and stop the forward motion or make it hard to turn.i`ve also had it were the rear brakes were causing a forward motion problem like your having.the shoes were rotating so far when the drum was turning then apply and lock up until it was put in reverse.just some things to check out.if things were working good with the rear drive shaft removed and the problem starts with it in then the problem is in the back end some where as mentioned above.

The jeep always acts like its in gear it will move forward in nutral and will not go in reverse


They locking nut has come loose on the shift control arm on the side of the transmission, you need to put it in park and adjust it so the arm is all the way forward and the shift lever is all the way into the Park position, this should get rid of the car moving when the shifter lever is not in reverse.
