THE CORRECT ANSWER DEPENDS ON THE MAKE AND YEAR OF THE CAR... IN SOME CASES LIKE FOR EXAMPLE, Chrysler HAS A DISK WITH 3 GEARS. THESE GEARS BRAKE.. YOU WILL HEAR A CRIMPING SOUND AND NO REVERSE. ALONG WITH THIS ALL THE METAL PARTICLES WILL DAMAGE YOUR CLUTCHES AND ALL THE CLUTCHES ON YOUR DRUMS WILL HAVE TO BE REPLACED. ON OTHER CARS COULD BE YOUR CONTROL MODULE, OR A SENSOR RELATED THAT SENDS A SIGNAL TO YOUR CONTROL SELENOID. SPEED SENSOR, ON SOME CARS. KNOCK SENSOR AND TPS SENSOR. GOOD LUCK
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.
If you have an automatic transmission, it probably has a forward clutch/band problem.
truck will only go forward not in reverse does this mean the transmission is gone
You may want to check your ATF level, if your ATF level is good, then there is a more advanced problem within your transmission, and you will need to see your local mechanic.
If it is an automatic transmission then your reverse clutch pack is probably burnt out in which case your transmission needs to be rebuilt If it it a manual transmission and it wont go into the reverse gear it is probably a shift synchronizer.
I had my 00 eclipse gt automatic do this. took it to mr transmition and they cleared codes that popped up and it stopped. if i drove forward for a while and warmed the car up, then reverse would work. hope this helps.
Most likely the plates or discs in the transmission are stuck together. There is really nothing to be done but repair or replace the transmission. I assume this is an automatic. They tend to fuse together so additives do not help.
Most likely your transmission needs replaced.
If the automatic transmission on a 2002 Kia Rio won't go into park and there is no reverse, there is a problem inside the transmission with the gear bands. Each gear has a separate band and sometimes they wear out. New bands need to be put in or a new transmission needs to be installed.
If an automatic transmission ,broken bands in the tranny.
Sounds like the transmission
To allow the vehicle to go forward or reverse. To "transmit" the engine's power to the drive axles.
The transmission is broken. Take it to a shop.
Sounds like a internal transmission failure, look for a good mom and pop transmission shop
Assuming automatic transmission, brake bands need adjustment/replacement
Do you mean the shifter or car physically does not move? BClear.
You need a new gear box (transmission)
Your forward gears are out in your transmission I recommend you take it to a shop.
Reverse is usually the first to go, followed by first gear. Time for a transmission rebuild.
When a Mercedes C280 will not move in forward or reverse it is an indication that the transmission is going out or has already gone out in the car. This is true of all cars, not just a Mercedes.
tranmission on way out reverse usally goes first got one for 100
The reverse band is broke. The others will soon follow as a rule of thumb.
It truly depends on the trans - auto or manual? Chev or Dodge? However, if you can go forward but reverse is gone, you have broken parts in the transmission. Really common on some GM's. Dan the tranny man
