It could be, just as simple as new fluid and filter. if that's it the clutches could be slipping.

My ford 1989 F250 won't change gears from reverse to drive

the first problem was the truck wouldn't start. replaced the starter, nothing. replaced the battery and solenoid, nothing. had to touch the starter wire to the battery and got the engine to start. so it looks as though something in the ignition maybe the problem. once i have the truck started i can shift into reverse from park and that's it. i can't shift it into neutral or drive. was hoping to hear it is the ignition switch i need to replace and i don't want to hear its the transmission. please help! thank you.

My ford f250 goes into reverse sometimes, other times it doesn't move at all, drive works fine. Any ideas?

Check the linkage. Set the parking brake, and examine the transmission where the linkage connects to the actuator on the transmission, and have somebody operate the shift lever. Take note if the transmission is going into reverse or not and if the actuator on the transmission is always going to the same spot.

If this test does not reveal a problem, disconnect the linkage from the actuator, and move the actuator by hand to the reverse position. you should feel it fall into the reverse position. If it does fall into the reverse position, and the transmission fails to go into reverse, then take it to a transmission shop

Car will not start in park, but will start in neutrel. Car will die as soon as you put it in reverse.

have your neutral safety switch checked or adjusted. if engine dies as soon as it is shifted to reverse, does it so the same when you shift it to drive? if on reverse only, idle is set too low.

99 saturn sl2 has lost reverse

Reverse & 2nd gear share the same clutch pack.Usually when reverse goes out you will get wierd shifting into 2nd or 3rd.Most likey the Input shaft retaining nut has come loose inside the first clutch housing.It can be accessed from the trans end cover but it will take some disassembly.The trans doesn't have to come out to correct this problem.I repaired many saturns with this problem.The only parts you will have to buy is an end cover gasket(paper gasket) & 41/2 qts Trans fluid.Decent mechanice could do this in about 2-3 hrs or less.The service engine light is probally on due to trouble codes from the trans controller most likey DTC P0723 No 2nd gear.hope this helps
