It's difficult to get a feel for what you mean when you say your engine shakes. Do you mean a regular shake? If that's the case it might be a bad valve, sparkplug, plug wire or injector. If you mean that the engine moves quite a distance when you put it in reverse, but then comes back, it could be a motor mount. Please feel free to send an e-mail directly if you want to discuss the situation further.
possible problems: broken engine mounts cause the engine to jerk, or tranmission fluid needs change, and possibly bad transmission.
There can be several things that will an automatic transmission not to work properly. The most common cause is a lack of transmission fluid. Broken shifting linkage can also cause the problem.
could be either transmission shift linkage not engaging reverse ( stops at neutral ) worn joint connectors sometimes cause this. or reverse clutches or gears bad inside transmission.
My daughters 1997 Saturn SC2 coupe automatic transmission has no reverse? what would cause this?? and how can i fix it without replacing the transmission.
i would make sure that the engine is idling at the right rpm cause to fast of rpm can cause that for sure
Bad fuel pump will cause the engine to stall or not start at all. A bad automatic transmission will cause the vehicle to jerk and not run smoothly.
clutch plates could be welded to gather
There can be several things that will cause your transmission not go into reverse. The most common cause is the gear in the transmission is worn.
It is possible to thin the engine oil far enough that it loses it's lubricating ability and could cause irrepairable harm to the engine. Engine oil lubricates. Transmission oil is designed to run through a pump as it lubricates. An automatic transmission is a pump. Totally different from the oil pump found in an engine.
Problem with the transmission. You need to have the transmission computer checked for codes to know a possible cause.
If this is an automatic transmission, more than likely the transmission is on it's way to the junkyard. Usually failing transmissions lose reverse first, then the higher forward gears - last will be the lowest forward gears.
check the shift linkages for adjustment.there is also an actuator switch on side of transmission will prevent this. if those 2 checks dont fix the problem, your transmission is shot
The most common cause of a automatic transmission jerking, when shifting, is low transmission fluid. Fill the transmission to the full mark.
There are several things that can cause your automatic transmission not to go into first gear. The most common cause is low transmission fluid.
An s-10 transmission with no reverse most likely has an internal problem. The shifter fork or a gear issue can cause no transmission reverse.
Yes coasting downhill will save you fuel. However do not do this with a vehicle equipped with automatic transmission. You will damage the automatic transmission by coasting. You can do this with a manual transmission but do not shut the engine off. This would cause you to loose power steering and power brakes.
Mechanical breakdown of the engine can sometime cause transmission delay in the engine.
There are several things that can cause your Honda Accord station wagon automatic transmission not to shift down. The most common cause is low transmission fluid.
Assume it's an automatic. You probably have a bad valve-body or clutch pack in the transmission.
There can be several things that will cause your 2000 Dodge Durango transmission to slip into reverse. A malfunctioning slave valve can cause this to happen.
Answer 1 - Faulty Spark Plug WiresAlthough it's possible, more than likely not. If plug wires are faulty, then that condition should cause the same performance issues [skipping, cutting out, dieing, etc.] regardless of the transmission being in forward or reverse. Often, engine missing when in reverse gear [if the vehicle is equipped with an automatic transmission] indicates a possible vacuum leak in the vacuum line going to the transmission modulator valve, or in the modulator valve itself.
There are several things that can cause your 1995 Chevy Cavalier transmission not to go into drive or reverse. The most common cause is a lack of transmission fluid. A broken shifting fork will also cause the problem.
I don't think so. The automatic transmission is controlled by engine speed, vehicle speed and throttle position. A large vacuum leak could effect throttle position, but it would cause other problems more noticable than the effect on transmission shifting. a vacuum leak mpuld not cause trasmission to slip but a band inside transmission would cause the problem
Could be a universal joint. If front wheel drive, it could be the constant velocity joint. I am assuming you have an automatic transmission. If it is a standard transmission, it could be the throwout bearing.
There are several things that can cause your manual transmission not to shift out of first gear or reverse. The most common cause is a broken shifting fork.
