Usually this is a problem with the shift linkage not being correctly adusted to allow the components to move where they should when they should.

I would start by disconnecting the linkage and trying to get it to shift (you'll probably need to use an adjustable wrench on the shaft, if that would work, to apply enought force but be careful so you don't apply enough force to damage anything). If you can't get it to shift that way you'll probably need to disassemble the chaincase. To get reverse to engage the shift fork needs to be able to slide the sliding gear on the coupling shaft.

One way to work on the chaincase without draining the lube out is to tip the sled on its left side so the oil stays in the case. You will have to remove the battery (if equiped) and make sure that the fuel and oil tank levels are low enough that they don't leak when the sled is tipped.

Another thought: Will it shift with the engine shut off? If so, there is likely a clutch problem that is applying load to the gears which wouldn't allow it to shift when the engine is running. This needs to get fixed as it will cause accelerated drive belt wear and probably doesn't allow the engine to run at the correct RPMs.

I have a 2013 600 ace tundra do not charge battery.. and skidoo just turns off... and the lights dim when i do get her going.. what could it be? she cant stay going


either a flat battery or faulty battery cell or cells. Batteries should always be fully charged using a charger before the seasons use. Also the problem with SkiDoos as they are only used a few months of the year. Do you put the battery on a battery maintainer for the summer months? I do with my boat batteries, 24 hours every month. Batteries don't like being depleted as the plates buckle. Max life on a battery would be about 5 years.

Or it could be a faulty alternator. Charge the battery first.

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.

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.

You will need to check the gear linkage hasits free movement and the gearbox mounting is secure. This happen on a Polo recently and the securing bolt to the gearbox mounting had fallen off leaving the gearbox hanging. I hope this helps you.
