All linkage is internal on your transmission. Sounds like either something came out of adjustment or more likely an internal shift fork or synchro is worn out. Synchros are usually made from brass and wear faster than the other gears.

Why is my 1997 Grand Cherokee Laredo slipping gears when starting up from a stop


slips in reverse too? (other shoe falls off......)
same answer for all a/t slush boxes.
linkage from shifter to box ok?>
check levels first.
check fuses, if TCM acts dead, (wont autoshift)
change the filter,
get it serviced.
if frisky, read the FSM and do the stall tests and the line pressure tests. otherwise get it fixed.

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

My holden viva 2008 manual cannot put into reverse


as the 5th gear and reverse gear are on the same shifter rail the there may be a problem with the selector fork for reverse gear. Undo the bolts that hold the shifter turret to the box and see if the reverse selector moves when you use a lever to move the rail

I have 1992 ford crown victoria that doesn't shift into reverse most especially when it's warm. i've had fluid changed. fluid is reddish now. is there an adjustment? sometimes seems like i can mess with...


Fluid color don't matter. Your cable or shifting linkage may have slipped or is slipping. #1 Hold brake pedal down and move shift lever very slow around the reverse indicator. When reverse activates note were indicator is located. #2 Test the other gear indicators at the proper speeds(MPH). No problems with #2-linkage problem. Problem with both-go get a six pack. Good Luck.

Reverse lights on 2003 ford expedition wont work why


On the side of the transmission where the gear shifter attaches is a multi-function switch that controls the ignition switch solenoid (which won't let you take out your key till it's in neutral), the reverse lights and the shifer release solenoid (which won't let you put it in gear until you hit the brakes. It is probably bad. It doesn't cost a lot and it referred to as the Neutral Safety switch.Since it's under the car it takes a lot of abuse and they sometimes just go bad. Make sure when you put on the new one that it's in the same general position as the old one so you won't have sticky shifter syndrome or sticky key syndrome. Good luck.

Car stops moving in reverse gear


Sounds like the car is just slipping out of gear. Keep your hand on the shifter when you back up next time. See if you can feel the shifter move when the car comes out of gear. If the shifter moves up when it happens keep pressure on the shifter holding it back like you dont want it to move forward. And of course if the shifter moves back when it comes out of gear, put forward pressure on the shifter so it doesnt slip out. This might work for now but but i know i wouldnt want to spen 700 for that ****. Let me know how it goes.
