When was last trans fluid & filter change? Sounds like it's beyond that and more than likely you'll need to have trans rebuilt.

Why would a vehicle in reverse move forward


The question is a little vague but I think I know what your referring to. All modern automatic transmissions have torque converters. This is the device that connects the engine to the transmission. All vehicle manufacturers like the trans to be nice and smooth shifting. That's great but it does come with some minor drawbacks. If you are facing slightly down hill and you put your car in reverse but do not step on the gas slightly I can guarantee that you will indeed roll forward. You can eliminate that issue by holding your left foot on the brake while you shift into reverse. Then, as soon as you feel the trans engage, gently depress the gas pedal with your right foot and it will eliminate that forward roll problem.

Bought a 1990 Bronco II from one of my troops and somehow he drove it over here. It's a manual transmission as well. But once I put it in first gear, it feels like something is stopping it going forward....


It sounds like you may have a brake caliper sticking (if the issue is really coming from the front). Does it pull in one direction? One way to check is to jack the front end up and try to spin each tire by hand. They should turn relatively freely. Another possibility, and more likely from your description, is that the rear emergency / parking brake may be frozen. Drum brakes, by nature, do a better job of holding the vehicle from rolling forward. If your emergency / parking brake is engaged, either frozen or inadvertently left on, I would expect the symptoms you describe- moving in reverse, but not forward. You can check this the same way- jack up the rear end of the vehicle, put it in neutral, and try spinning the rear tires by hand.

Assuming your vehicle is a 4x4, a less likely scenario is that something's gone awry in the transfer case, front differential, axles, hubs.

Good luck.

The gearboox is neutral no fouard and reverse


if the vehicle does not roll in park(looking for broken axle) it's most likely cause is a stripped out torque converter spline.

No reverse movement after valve body was removed and cleaned


Stupid question here, but did you put the valve body in backwards or upside down? Ensure all the connectors, lines are good....outside of that how about the gear selector? I have done alot of tranny work myself, but some of these things are common mishaps that I have done myself. Good luck to you and let us know what you come up with. Thanks for using Fixya!

Shifting problems


I think you are saying the vehicle pulls forward,no matter what gear you put the shifter in?If this is the case,there is a problem with the forward clutch.I've seen this one over and over in many different transmissions and vehicles.The forward clutch pack is always applied whenever the vehicle is moving forward.It is never applied in reverse,or neutral.So,the forward clutch pack loses clearance from normal wear and tear,or a seal in the pack goes bad,and the clutches start slipping....and slipping........still slipping.....until they get SO hot,the clutch plates and steel plates fuse together,are welded together.This is why your Millenia is going forward in reverse and neutral.It's either that or you have a problem with the shifter cable,or linkage,and you didn't mention anything about the detents,or not being able to obtain Park,so i assume all that is ok
