I have same problem with a 95 4runner 4wd 3VZE engine and A340 H tranny. I had previously had a real bad problem with all gears "neutralizing" where car would rev up but not move forward or rear in any gear. I spent $ 1,500.00 for transmission and transfer case rebuild, and problem not solved. After months of research, I found out there is a "valve body" which is a an electronic plate inside the transmission drain pan right above the transmission filter. These valve bodies have solenoids which act as mini pumps inside transmission. I ordered a kit through a San Antonio, TX independent distributor (# 1 solenoid, # 2 solenoid, and a so called "lock up solenoid". Kit comes with full details how to replace those three sensors. I did job myself one afternoon..no problem. 4runner works like new now except for the reverse which acts as you mention. There is a fourth solenoid in the transfer case (not transmission) whcih was not part of the "kit" I bought. Although I'm not sure it is the cause, after replacing the other solenoids, the fix was dramatic on the forward gears. I'm currently researching if solenoid # 4 may be the cause of the reverse gear still not working fine.

Will not go into gear on a flat surface but will when it is parked up hill


Looks like you are running low on automatic transmission oil as not enough oil will go in the hydraulic pump on a flat surface but will when the car is slightly tilted

engine will not rev above 3000rmp in neutral or park its a safety feature ,as for the driving problems i honestly havent a clue ,but if its a 2001 model then maybe the ford software will read this car ,after all it is a ford or was till recently.Wondering if something stupid is wrong like the plug leads ??or the wrong grade of spark plugs

When below 20 degrees, I start the car, put it in reverse and it will not move. Rev the engine to about 3000 to 3500 and it starts to move. Go to drive and back again and it moves a little more. Than it...


have a feeling you need a different grade of tranny fluid or in our terms the transmission oil,is the wrong grade for the extreme temperatures you are encountering .Keep vehicle in a heated garage

If engine sounds okay, (when you accelerate, it revs up, etc.) then could be a transmission problem. (assume this is an automatic?)

Check fluid level first, if okay, next suggestion would be to change fluid & filter.

When you select a gear, do you get anything, any slight jolt to the vehicle?

If nothing at all, also might check the transmission lever linkage.

Is this 4WD or 2WD? If 4WD, also need to check transfer case setting, make sure it is properly set.

Saab 9-5 1999 won't go into reverse


ASE Mechanic:
Try checking the fluid level first, and then look for any leaks. if corrected right away you might not have to rebuild the trans. but other wise look into the cost of a rebuilt transmission.

Reverse doesnt work! Audi A4 2001 1.8T


MAKE SURE YOUR TRANSMISSION FLUID IS FULL/ADJUST YOUR LINKAGE SO REVERSE LINES UP/REPLACE THE TRANSMISSION FILTER AND FLUID.NEVER PAY $100S-$1000S TILL YOU TRY THE ABOVE BECAUSE THEY WILL TAKE YOUR MONEY.
