Need to check the pressure of the system, does your pump start running when you open the drivers door?

Use a scanner to confirm whether you might have a fault on the automatic gearbox,or the gear box ecu is not working or the gear box is un serviceable and needs replacement.

2000 Ford ranger 3.0 L automatic granny will barley move in reverse but drives good in forward gears what would cause this?


My automatic granny doesn't move that fast either. It sounds as though your reverse gear is going out, the only thing I can suggest is taking it to a transmission repair shop... sorry =(

Sometimes the R gear in my gear box dosen t work in my bmw ci 323 model 2000


hi. is this a manul shift trans?? if yes, then it is an easy fix. really it is. remove shifter knob and boot to gain access to the shifter assembly, you should be looking at the top of the transmission, remove 3 to 4 bolts holding the shifter in. slowly lift the shifter out of the trans, there should be a plastic "bushing" between the shfter and the shifting rod, its probably destoryed thats why reverse is hard to get, it adds more "throw" moving the shift rod of the trans more forward and firmly into gear.

Can get all forward gears but can not put it into reverse gear unless the car has been warmed up for ten minutes


The seals inside your transmission are bad and leaking by and they don't start to seal until the tranny fluid warms up and swells the seals. To temporarily fix this problem you can pour some brake fluid into your transmission fluid. This will swell the seal in the transmission and it should start working again. This is only a temporary fix however, eventually you will ned to replace or rebuild your tranny. I used this method on a turbo trans 350 and got a year of service out of it that way before I had to replace the tranny. Just do not put too much brake fluid into the tranny, I would recommend one or two capfuls to start with.

I have a 2000 BMW 323I automatic transmission that will not go into reverse. All the forward gears seem to be working fine. I bought the car from a dealer who says the car was working fine before I bought...


hi changing fluid and filters sometimes cures problemiif not its probably reverse gear solenoid in gearbox .get a decent secondhand box if fluid change doesnt help.

Gears change without a command from the driver.


There is a vacuum controlled selector valve on the selespeed alfa's it tricky to get at and expensive to replace. Have it sent to an alfa specialist or main dealer and they ll sort it
