    Yeah, I realize that now after dropping 2400 on a rebuilt tranny. Seems that all those times I told the boyfriend not to put the car in drive until he was done backing up finally came to a head.



    Thanks for trying.

I have a 2002 ford focus and the car will not move in reverse. It moves forward in drive only, but won't kick into overdrive. Any ideas


sounds like its internal, like the reverse band, that applies the overdrive, or the clutches that apply when in overdrive, either way the reverse band and overdrive clutches work hand in hand, for overdrive and reverse... id say you need a rebuild or a junk yard unit.... :( sorry for the bad news.

No overdrive light on car will not shift into overdrive


Time for a rebuild. Overdrive is a low wearing band but it does wear. Your gas milage will decrease drastically. Good luck

Cost of a new overdrive


You basically have to have the transmission rebuilt. The overdrive band is a low wearing band BUT it does wear. Depending on where you take it Dealer approx 3k independant guys $1900 and up. I recommend a Transmission repair shop that employs
ASE Certified Transmission Tech's. (usually Lee Myles)

My '94 Grand Cherokee Limited has no power in reverse.


It sounds like the reverse band is out of adjustment. Three things can cause this, reverse band, front clutch and the overdrive direct clutch. To test the band, drive the truck in manual low up to 25 mph. Then let off, if the transmission doesn't pull the engine down, the band needs adjusted. If the front clutch is the problem, 3rd gear will be act weird too. The only test I know of for the overdrive direct is to inspect it, so process of elimination will have to work. Hopefully the problem is the band, because you can pull the pan, service the trans, adjust the band, and be done. Any of the other problems and you are looking at a rebuild. Good luck.
