Cant find my reverce 1997 caviler


Check your owners manual for the correct shift pastern...It is a natural H pattern, with 5th gear upper right...reverse should be all the way to the right and lower right to engage...the knob does not always indicate the correct pattern...may have been changed...also be sure it is a 5 speed...most of these Cavaliers were 4 speeds...with reverse being upper right instead of 5th gear upper right...confirm in your owners manual if possible...will show illustration...Hope this helps.

HELLO MY CAR IS A FORD FALCON WITH A 351 WINDSOR C10 AUTO NOW WHEN COLD THE CAR IS I START IT UP PUT IT IN D TAKE OFF IT SOMETIMES WONT GO INTO 2 UNTILL I SHIFT THE SELECTOR FROM D TO SECOUND AND THEN WONT...


Ford designed their transmissions (the early ones) to be in 2nd gear if you put them in second gear. In other it starts out in 2nd, not first, if the shifter is in 2nd. ( they called it "snow gear" ) You are right it could be the governor, it could also be the kick down linkage is not adjusted right. If it only does this when it's cold, I would be leaning toward the gov. You might get it to free up with just some clean fluid but it may require being removed and replaced.

BTW, your caps lock button is stuck too =)

Car goes into reverce but does not engage completely works fine in forward, when in reverce it seems lik it wants to ingage but does not. it makes a chattering sound and feeling. what electric part puts...


Hello. As you know, the transmission is one of the more sophisticated components in any auto. It takes the most transmission pressure to engage reverse, third, and fourth gear in an auto tranny. In an auto tranny, the shifter is connected to a linkage that manually shifts between the different gears in the transmission. When you shift into reverse, all transmission pressure is concentrated to engage reverse. When you shift to drive the transmission will operate normally, building pressure until it can shift into the next gear. With third, second, or first gear selected it will lock out all higher gears (Unless the TCU detects overrevving of the engine, in which case it will override gear selection and upshift to avoid engine damage). All the TCU does in a modern auto tranny is control shift points. Years and years ago, shifting was controlled by a spring attached to the gas pedal. When the gas pedal was depressed, the spring would expand. As tranny pressure grew, the spring would become compressed until it was fully compressed, engaging the next gear. The harder you stepped on the gas, the longer you went until the tranny shifted. In modern transmissions the TCU dictates shift points, and not much else. The TCU will also control when the torque converter will lock, but that's where it's duties end. The problem with engaging reverse is either a linkage issue, or a problem with the pump not building enough pressure to fully engage reverse.

Try putting the shifter in reverse, holding the brakes firmly, and giving the car gas. If the car reaches a higher RPM and suddenly slams into reverse it is the pump. The pump will only build enough pressure to engage reverse with higher RPM's. If the pump is severly damaged it won't engage at all, but if this is the case it probably won't engage third or fourth gear either at that point. If the problem is with the linkage, reverse just won't engage whatsoever, despite RPM's. I'd say start with the shift linkage. If it's bent or misadjusted it could cause reverse to not be fully engaged. The TCU doesn't control reverse at all, since there are no shift points and no need for the torque converter to lock.

1999 honda odyssey shift hard first and secound gear


this is usaly a sing of waer on the transmission. cheak your tany oil for shiny particle or small papaer ones. any of that means your fritcion and metal clutch plates are going. and should be replaced.

Normaly this will only happen on cold starts, then it happen all the time, then it will be all gears after that, then you wont have 1 and 2 and slowly you wont have a working trany.

This is a must fix by a delar or trany shop. (trany shop will do it fast and cheeper but some times you wont get the warnenty

These transmissions are computer controlled, and this sounds like you have electronic problems coupled with mechanical transmission problems. I suggest you consult a transmission specialist to diagnose your problems.
