It is probly your transmission.
I have same problem.
The accelerator in a car is meant to make the car move forward or backward depending on if the car is in drive or reverse.
The accelerator cable is connected with a swivel nut on each end of the cable. Loosen the swivel nut, by turning it to the left. The accelerator cable will come off. Reverse the process to install the new accelerator cable.
It's probably not a motor problem. What led up to the problem? Did it just appear or did someone work on the electrics and then the problem cropped up? Where do the sparks fly from? It may be a solenoid problem, but the symptoms reveal little.
the only problem that you can repair yourself would be with the linkage. but if all other gears work except reverse then the problem is probably internal and should be inspected by a professional. it makes a big difference if the trans. is manual or automatic also.
Not within the game.
The 1985 Chevrolet Corvette accelerator cable is held in place with a swivel nut on each end of the cable. Turn the swivel nuts to the left to remove the cable. Reverse the process to install the new accelerator cable.
To change the reverse lights on a Pontiac Sunfire you need to locate it on the left side of the transaxle. Then, unplug the electric connector and remove the switch along with the socket.
Bad reverse clutch in the tranny
The problem is the reverse light switch. It is located on the top of the transmission that should sloved your problem.
Because of the induction accelerator. Make sure the spacing mounts are completely sealed. Ask the repair guy if there is spacing mount replacement valves since they connect to the accelerator under the transmission.
More to the QuestionJust a bit more information to my question above. The car was only working on two cylinders or pistons. That has been repaired and the car now works good.When I put the car into drive or reverse I have to keep my foot on the accelerator and on the brake. Once the car has taken of and I get to an intersection its fine there is no problem its just after the car is switched on and the initial take of be it in reverse or in drive that's the problem. Can anyone shed some light on it please?
If your Pontiac runs a 700r4 gm transmission you have stripped a reverse input shell. The transmission needs to come out for repair.
In reverse the Rincon will pin out at 7mph. To fix this you need to install a reverse override kit.
It's probably your transmission.
number 8 reverse torque
If an automatic transmission ,broken bands in the tranny.
clutch is worn out
If your car won't shift into reverse, try changing the transmission fluid and filter. Sometimes that will solve the problem. If that doesn't help, there could be a problem with the linkage or the shifter cable. Or, if the car is an automatic, make sure you're stepping on the brake pedal before you try to shift out of park. You may need to have a mechanic inspect the transmission.
I have a reverse slippage problem. How do I fix it
a transmission problem
A car that won't move when in reverse could indicate a problem with the transmission. It could also indicate a problem in the gear selector.
