check the recalls alot of problems with the trans
The sensor is stuck if the bottle is full. Just shake it up, it will unstuck.
check your transmission fluid or it may be something electrical if your cavalier transmission is run by electronics. If not it may be a sun gear inside the transmission so you may need to get the transmission rebuilt.
If your van won't go into reverse, the transmission might be stuck. It could also be low on transmission fluid.
It sounds like the transmission shifter linkage is disconnected.
Stuck how? Lock? Door?
I would replace the thermostat. This sounds like the thermostat is stuck open.
Either lubricate or replace the cables Remove rear wheels to lubricate all contact points
your transmission is stuck in what we call limp mode. Take it to a transmission shop and have an electrical scan done. Does your speedometer work or not ? If not then it could be as simple as a output speed sensor or broken wire
Check these three things; Bad door jam switch ( stuck?), bad bulb, blown fuse.
the window motor might be bad or there is not of power in your cords to power it
Put it in neutral and push it in reverse for about 500 feet it should kick out.
The float in your carburetor might be stuck, or your fuel pump (or line ) might have a piece of trash in it.
Check the coolant levels. Insure that the cooling fan turns on when its supposed to, and the thermostat is not stuck closed. Make sure that the water pump is operating correctly.
A broken rod is usually caused by a binding problem. The piston could be stuck or the rings may be damaged.
Is this a manual transmission? If so, this is a pretty common problem for these cars. Probably going to have to replace the shifter cable. About $50 at Advance.
Same thing happened to my friend - there is an "H" shaped (sort of) bracked just below the boot for the shifter - the bolt on the right hand side had dropped off and the left one was loose enough for the plate to move (he was stuck in reverse)... new nut & bolt and a good tighten and he was able to get out of the mall parking lot... .

bent valve, burnt valve, stuck valve, broken piston ring, cracked piston, cracked head, blown head gasket.
What i do is put it in reverse and go about 10 feet and brake a little hard then put it in drive. it always works for me when that happens
I have not ever worked on this model,but here's something to try. Disconnect it at the transmission shift linkage on the transmission and see if it will shift by hand. if it will then you will need to look at the cables,rods or the shifter mechanism.Maybe something is worn,bent or broken.
Bad spark plug or plug wire or one or both valves leaking or stuck. Time for a compression check or spark check.
Automatic or manual trans? What am I missing here? Explain! If it is stuck in 3rd gear then it is obvious that it can't go in reverse.

If a 1989 Nissan Sentra clutch pedal quit working and the car is now stuck in reverse, it will need to be towed to a repair shop to fix the clutch. The transmission may also be damaged due to it being stuck in reverse.
