I mean this seriously: Where you can get a good used replacement.

There is nothing external that can be the cause, it has had a serious internal failure and either needs overhaul or replacement

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.

What type of transmission do you have Maunal or Automatic? If it is a manual transmission then possibly the clutch is worn. If it is an Automatic, then possibly the fluid is too low or may just need service. Check underneath the car to see if the fluid had been leaking. Do you recall a leak underneath?

it sounds like you might have a problem with the transmissions' shifter linkage. if it is not properly adjusted it may feel as if the transmission shifts into a different gear but it actually just stays in the same one.

Check for binding shifter linkage connections at either end of the transmission shifter rod going down from inside engine compartment to the side of the transmission. Good Luck! Dub
