When was last trans fluid & filter change? (I'm assuming it's an auto. trans.) Trans fluid & filter should be changed every 30k or 3 years. I'd start there and have system flushed when you do the filter change.

SOURCE: cannot engage reverse gear

Hi,

To my understanding this is a common problem with Saab 900s. The cure was to replace the existing linkages with an upgraded one. There was even a recall or service bulletin to this effect.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Too much travel when selecting reverse

No all your problems are by the sound of it are in the top of the box as when you select the forward gears they move 3 rails but the reverse has to go over the gate but going to far then either the stop has moved /broken/ or the selector pin in fork could have come out but i dont no about a 19mm bolt onthe side of the box ........you can try it to see if it turns easy..

50 horse 4 stwont go into reverse gear due to shaft problems


the drive shaft just drives a pinion gear in the prop box that drives to gears that spin in opposite directions all the time
by selecting forward with the selector rod , a dog gear is moved forward to mesh with one gear that is turning or moves the other way to engage the other gear that is turning
that is the forward or reverse action for the prop
if you have forward but no reverse the it is not a drive shaft problem but a selector rod adjustment that is not moving the dog far enough to engage the running gear

I just put a new slave cylinder and clutch master cylinder on a 2003 Honda accord 3.0 V6 six speed and you can shift the gears without the clutch pedal pushed in or the car started


that is normal if the gear synchro dogs ( teeth) are in line in the box
problems concerning a clutch are
slashing gears when trying to engage first or reverse with the pedal to the floor ---needs bleeding
slipping when the clutch pedal is released--- slipping clutch from the pressure not being released ---problem in master cylinder
reverse gear is the only gear not synchronised so even with the clutch depressed it is possible sometimes that it will not go into gear unless you let the clutch up to move the gears in the box then attempt to re-engage reverse

Reverse gear not working in my renault clio 2004


IF all other gears work as designed then the problem will not be the clutch but in the gear box. The only thing that you would have removed in the gear box is the gear lever or the gear level turret on top of the box. recheck this area to ensure that you have got the lever in the selector rails correctly and that the reverse rail is not out of line with the cross section of the others.. Use a big screw driver to pull it out of gear to align across the slot.

Reverse on my gmc envoy not working


This can be due to few reasons but the most important can be as follows:

1. If can be a mis-alignment of the gear lever to the gear box as normally the reverse gear is always engage with more movement . so a change of postion or setting can alter the notch settings and refuse to engage properly.
2. Secondly the fault within the gear box, if there is a linkage or counter wheel/gear setting within it will not mesh or engage as the setting would be altered.
3. finally gaps or bush failures in the gear lever, linkages or the gear box will make the movement restricted and hence not engage.
You need to check on all the above. Thank You.

2001 Rav4 gearbox problem.


gears slipping out of mesh indicates
1 ---not properly engaged on selection
2--- failing output shaft bearings
3-- worm slip joint bush in the extension housing not maintaining alignment of the output shaft
The gear engagement is by dog teeth in the synchro ring for 5th gear and if that connection alignment is not maintained exactly by bearings and bushes the dog teeth move out of engagement at each revolution
AS reverse gear operates through a moveable spur cut gear to engage the counter shaft and the out put shaft and you are having trouble with reverse as well , indicates the out put shaft rear bearing is suspect or is moving in the box housing
