Are there any fuses that would cause the transmission not to reverse?
No. That is mechanical, not electric.
What would cause a 1998 SL2 Automatic not to drive in reverse when all other gears work fine and all fluids have been topped off?
On the vast majority of modern cars today it is impossible to actually shift to reverse while driving at high speed. Modern transmissions have an override safety device that prevents the transmission from going into reverse at any speed forward that would harm the transmission. You could put the selector in reverse, but the transmission would not shift to reverse. On older transmissions without this feature, you would probably destroy the transmission and possible have…
I was told by my mechanic that the transmission hesitating after putting it in drive after reversing is a sign of the transmisison dying. ---------- Check transmission fluid. When the fluid is low there is not enough in the torque converter, so when you go to reverse or drive you have to rev the engine before it moves to compensate for less fluid in the torque converter.
When you put your car in reverse it does not move and when you put it in drive it still does not move your transmission fluid is very low would that be the problem or do you need a new transmission?
Why does your automatic transmission clunk when sliding shifter past reverse into park and lurch when you turn ignition off sometimes?
What would cause a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder to work great in all the forward gears but do nothing when placed in reverse?
What would cause a 1998 contour not to move in reverse and only move a short distance if you shift from Drive to low?
if its a rear wheel drive its possibly a U joint if its a front wheel drive transmission fluid is low or its just time for a new transmission or a rebuild on current transmission. rebuilding a transmission is often better because you already know the car you have verses buying a different car you know nothing about.
This happened to me with my 2001 Mercury villager. The speed sensor would cause this to happen when it was extremely cold outside (below 5 degrees or so). Another culprit could be the transmission is starting to go bad. Do not panic until you look for further clues about a possible transmission failure however. I would first check the level of your transmission fluid. Low fluid could also cause this to happen.
