You really probably shouldn't be driving this vehicle right now. If it is leaking transmission fluid, and will not go into reverse, it means there is not enough transmission fluid in the vehicle to perform that task. Check the fluid. If there is plenty of fluid inside and it will still not go into reverse, you are looking at a new transmission. Whenever you feel your vehicle try to slip gears as you go down the road, you need to take it in to be looked at immediately to prevent things like having to get a new transmission. You may not have a huge problem yet, they may be able to stop the leak, but if you continue to try and drive it, it will result in a new trans.

Pull the transmission dipstick and check the fluid level because you may need to add more transmission fluid. After that, repair the leak.

Intermittent Transmission slippage


You have a fatal problem with the transmission that will require it be removed and a rebuilt installed. You either have worn out clutch pack plates or the system is losing hydraulic pressure due to hard and leaking seals (common on high mileage car and trucks) You can try having the unit flushed of all the old fluid and also putting in a can of LUCAS brand transmission conditioner to soften up and seal internal leaks, it may work, but the cost will be about $150

No reverse willnot select reverse, auto, and are the engines free spinning ?


check your transmission fluid.....if possible use a transmission additive to try and solve this....or top up with transmission fluid as required...check for leaks under your car of colored oil..usually red...you could have a leak and losing transmission fluid...if so top up with a sealant fluid for transmissions...this usually works for small leaks...you have to drive about 30kms to get the fluids to circulate...for the seal to work..
