It could be that reverse gear has been partially stripped. when we talk gears we are literally talking of mechanical gears. sometimes teeth break off from normal wear and tear, after so many break off the gear has trouble engaging. you will either have to have the transmission rebuilt or have new one installed, hope its under warranty this kind of work can be costly. Most likely this is the problem. If your car is standard transmission it could be your clutch is having trouble engaging, but this would also affect forward gears so it is most likely your reverse gear is missing teeth

My holden viva 2008 manual cannot put into reverse


as the 5th gear and reverse gear are on the same shifter rail the there may be a problem with the selector fork for reverse gear. Undo the bolts that hold the shifter turret to the box and see if the reverse selector moves when you use a lever to move the rail

How do I know if my motor mounts are bad


Takes 2 people, have someone watching the engine while you put it in gear the motor will rock one direction or the other depending on forward or reverse, movement of about 1-2 inches is normal, but if you see it moving several inches or even bangs when put into gear or veh has a bad vibration at idle in gear is another indication.. Evenif the mounts are not visually busted doesn't mean they are not bad and or weak..

When I put my gear into Reverse, Netrual and Drive the gear is getting stiff to move. Why is this happening?


If you mean the shifter is getting hard to move, its probably the shift linkage sticking, try a couple squirts of pblaster or other penetrating oil. If the motion of the vehicle is getting hard to drive in reverse and drive the torque converter may be the issue.

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 =(

Is it going in gear, but vehicle just doesn't move, or you can't get it to go into the "reverse" or "5th" gear location? If you can't get it to go into the selected area (reverse or 5th gear spot) then I would guess you you will need to pull the top cover off, and slide the "fork" back onto the shaft. I have seen this happen before. I guess if my response wasn't helpful, I would elaborate a little more about your problem.

Try putting it in neutral before putting it in drive. the pump doesn't engage in park and sometimes the fluid leaks back out of the torque converter. I have the same problem in my 2004 Ram 3500 and 70 Challenger.

My automatic car wont move. I can put it in drive or reverse, but it doesn't move.


Failure of the Auto clutch or a fault in the transmission box. In both the cases the gear box/trans mission must be checked.
Check the activation of the gear stick to ensure that the requested action is seen on the box or is a failure of the link or electrics.
