Hi,
The gears are crossed up in the transmission.
You may get lucky if you try with the engine OFF,turning the trans pulley in the direction opposite of which the motor turns. This might unlock the internal gears.
Sorry for your problem. I know it is time to get the ground ready.

2003 dodge neon goes forward no problems but no reverse


If we assume it's an automatic....and the shifter locks in position for each selection...etc....

1. Your transmission fluid is too low or too dirty to engage reverse.

2. Your reverse bands are worn out or damaged from shifting to or from reverse while moving forward?

Mine had reverse totally burned out but drove ahead fine...for a while.

Ford taurus will not engage in reverse or forward


Well, yes the solenoids would cause the transaxle to not function right.
Are you sure the trans is not engaging, or are the brakes locked on ?
You say it shifts fine, you mean you can move the shift lever ?

Transmission question


hi i will try help, well yes it will have adverse results on his gear box if he is putting it in drive and then reverse before the vehicle stops going forward, ile explain, when you engage the gear and drive forward, the centrifugal force is sent to the torque converter This engages reverse gear within the transmission, giving the ability for the vehicle to drive backwards. In order for the driver to select reverse, they must come to a complete stop push the shift lock button in (or pull the shift lever forward in the case of a column shifter) and select reverse. Not coming to a complete stop can cause severe damage to the transmission. Many modern automatic transmissions have a safety mechanism in place, which does to some extent prevent (but does not completely avoid) inadvertently putting the car in reverse when the vehicle is moving forwards. This mechanism usually consists of a solenoid-controlled physical barrier on either side of the Reverse position, which is electronically engaged by a switch on the . Therefore, the brake pedal needs to be depressed in order to allow the selection of reverse. Some electronic transmissions prevent or delay engagement of reverse gear altogether while the car is moving. Some shifters with a shift button allow the driver to freely move the shifter from R to N or D, or simply moving the shifter to N or D without actually depressing the button. However, the driver cannot put back the shifter to R without depressing the shift button to prevent accidental shifting, especially at high speeds, which could damage the transmission.so hope that answers your question and end the feud lol, please vote thanks

I have Troy-Bilt storm 7524 snow blower which normally works fine, however, it has started to have problems shifting back into forward gear after being reversed. I'll put the snow-blower into reverse gear...


Try lubing the linkage where it shifts from forward and to reverse the linkage is most likely freezing up or has snow or ice build up causing it not to shift, My thought is your shoving it hard enough that it finally engages when you get the snow or ice to break off.
