If the manual transmission has trouble going in reverse but shifts in all other gears fine and you can not start the car in reverse. what is wrong?

If the engine is running/idling to high, it will make putting it into reverse very difficult. Manual transmissions rarely have internal problems aside from clutch assembly replacement. That's not to say it couldn't have a problem though.

I recently had this very problem with my 1996 Buick Century and it was in need of a new transmission and would have cost $1100-$1500 to fix, so I went and bought a Toyota Corolla.

If you shift manually, you have a manual transmission. If your car shifts for you, you have an automatic.

It controls the transmission shifts.It controls the transmission shifts.

an automatic transmission shifts through the 4 or 5 gears for you as you accelerate. a manual transmission must be shifted by hand using a shifter and a clutch (located next to the left of the brake pad).

If you mean the transmission itself shifts forward, it is because the transmission is suspended, so when the transmission is put in reverse gear the momentum will push the transmission forward. Now, if the car pulls forward when put in reverse, this means there is a transmission problem. This may just indicate the shift linkages need adjustment, or that the transmission has a major problem and needs repairing. Take it to a shop and have it checked.

there isn't a difference cause theres no such thing as a automatic or manual engine. there is such thing as a manual transmission aka trans. and a automatic trans. the automatic shifts by hydrolic pressure that increases when acclurating. and a manual trans the person driving the vehical shifts the gears with a lever. i hope that's what you wanted to know.

A manual system is operated directly by the user, and an automated system occurs without user intervention. The same comparison can be made to vehicles: a manual transmission requires the driver to shift gears, and an automatic transmission shifts gears by itself.

An automatic transmission tends to last longer, especially with new drivers. It controls gear changes automatically at the proper RPMs. In a manual, there is a much greater chance of bad shifts, resulting in clutch and gear wear.

A Camry transmission will experience late shifts if the fluid is low or the bands are worn. This is an early sign of failure.

there is no fuse that makes the transmission shift the transmission shifts on cylinoids and rpms

I believe they are. I'm having trouble with mine too. The mechanic at the dealership said a lot of people have complained.

User Avatar

do you have all forward gears? if yes, you have broken reverse gear (one turning the spin into reverse) in the transmission, if you miss also some forward gears it shifts rough, tranny is to be rebuilt... either way it's expensive fix

User Avatar

you could need a transmission flush or your syncro could be worn. try rev matching between gears and if it shifts smooth by doing that its probably your syncro

User Avatar

If you accelerate and the transmission shifts to a lower gear of the overdrive disengages the RPMs will increase. If the vehicle has a manual transmission a slipping clutch will cause the RPMs to increase if the clutch is defective.

User Avatar

The synchronizing gears don't seem to be meshing right in the transmission. If the transmission is full of fluid then it will need to be taken apart to find the problem.

If you are asking the function of a modulater valve,it is to smooth out the shifts in an automatic transmission.

User Avatar

in an automatic transmission when it shifts the belts that hold the planetary gears that control the gear ratios grab the next gear before it releases the previous gear. while the transmission is in two gears at once the engine doesn't provide the power to the transmission so with the lack of tension on the motor it allows it to build up speed before it slows back down when the transmission releases the lower gear What about a manual transmission? Is it normal for it to still do this same thing?

User Avatar

You could try changing the transmission filter and the fluid.

If the pcm controls the transmission the shifts could be inaccurate.
