there is a reverse solenoid separate to the others. you may get a serious problem by the use of diesel as that fuel is still in the converter and will affect the transmission oil especially when the oil is hot.run the fault codes to find what is wrong.

Was driving and went to park now i have no reverse,but have all the other gears


sounds to me like it is long over due for service. if the ****** can be saved at this point it needs a fluid and filter change pronto.... have you by chance made sure there is fluid still in the ******? and if there is still fluid in it you should smell it and see if it smells burnt run your fingers down the dip stick and check for any metel shavings in the fluid. with luck no burnt smell and no metel shavings and fluid still in the transmission with a service and filter change you could be backing up again in no time. but if you smell burnt fluid or see shinny metel flakes of feel corse metel shavings in the fluid i am afraid you are in for an expensive adventure and will be replacing either the car or transmission sorry for the bad news

You need a full service of the auto transmission. Check the oil condition for burnt smell.
The oil may be burnt out and fails to lubricate when temperature goes up.
But most likely the gear gaskets or gear teeth are worn out.

I am smelling burnt oil when i get out of my car and something is driping in my drive way but when i continually check the oil it is never low where could this be coming from?


You could be looking at brake fluid,power steering fluid, automatic transmission fluid, anti-freeze, hypoid gear oil (stick shift), or even engine oil (a little oil goes a long way). Burnt oil says valve cover gasket dripping on the manifold. valve cover gaskets are for the most part easy to get to and fairly easy to change. If the outside is leaking some times the inside is leaking into the spark plug holes. Degrease the engine and if it is easy do it yourself.

Automatic Transmission Doesn T Shift Into Drive but will go in reverse, from any other gear (including P or neutral)


check transmission fluid make sure its not low.if fluid looks black and smells burnt.change transmission fluid and filter.if you already change fluid and filter.your transmission manual valve out of adjustment.or you have faulty oil pump and worn over drive with a damage roller clutch.also forward clutch has worn or burned clutch plates damage piston or seals.

Transmission on 1995 Buick Century, slipping badly


Sir I would first change my filter. When you do you should be able to acertain if anything is wrong by what yuo find in your pan. I think your clutchs are probably bad, but with out being able to scan it I don't have any other ideas. I have been lucky a couple of time before and changing the filter solved my problem. Your car is in limp mode generally you have reverse and second gear. 1st gear and reverse use the same clutches, so I am wondering if maybe you have second gear only!

Have the vehicle scanned for diagnostic trouble codes,and repair any codes.More than likely the trans needs a rebuild.If the fluid smelled burnt,then obviously clutches or bands are burnt inside the trans.Changing the fluid just got rid of the smell,whatever is burnt is still hurnt.It is best to stop driving the vehicle,as continuing to drive it will just cause more damage to whatever is damaged.Those transmissions are prone to pump problems too.
