Diagnose first. If 1996 to present, an OBDII scan might help point you in right direction, if the ECU has detected a fault, for example a shift solenoid.. Could be anything as easy as adjusting linkage, to a solenoid, to as serious a needing a complete re-build
Sounds like a low fluid situation, but could be more serious.
You need to seek help immediately from a transmission professional. If you continue to drive the car with this problem you may do serious damage to the transmission.
most likely its the tranny. could use a fluid and filter change or could be more serious.
YESAn automatic transmission car has a safety feature called a "Neutral Safety"It will not allow the starter to work if the shifter is not in either neutral or park. Many new cars will only start in park.On a manual transmission car the transmission being stuck in reverse probably means a serious failure inside the transmission that could jam things up to the point the engine wont start.
You have a serious transmission problem. Have it checked ASAP...
yes. It could be as simple as low transmission fluid or as serious a a pump failure. If you can find a place you trust, you should have it checked soon. vbd
if you were going 25 in reverse and slammed it into first like that, you more than likely broke the gear... it would probably be in your best interest to get a new transmission now since you've done some serious damage to your existing one, to which no amount of fluid is likely to fix
No, not really. Transmission fluid is basically just oil. An engine that has seized up that way has suffered serious damage to the pistons and cylinder walls, they've basically become welded together. The engine would have to be rebuilt whether you to it loose or not.
There is no such thing as "transmission oil" there is only transmission fluid, but but over filling the reservoir could cause serious damage to your transmission..
Just a drip.
Another problem might be the sun gear drive shell in your auto transmission. GM 4L60 transmissions are notorious for this problem causing a no reverse symptom. this means that you will need some serious work done on your vehicle
You have a 12 year old transmission that is in serious need of service. Have the fluid and filter changed and see where you stand after that. If the problems still persists, take it to a professional.
Sure you can drive it, and you can also do serious damage to the transmission by doing so. Do exactly what the light says. Have the transmission checked by a professional.
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 can't physically shift the vehicle into drive, then the linkage going to the transmission may be binding up. If you can shift the gear selector into drive, but the vehicle won't move forward, then you may be very low on fluid. Many times when a transmission gets very low, it will only move in reverse and not forward in any gear. Check the fluid level and top it off if it is low. If the transmission is already full, then you may have more serious damage that may require a trans shop.
The same place the transmission fluid dipstick is. Be sure that you actually need to add fluid or you can cause serious damage to your transmission.
Transmission perhaps? __________ Sounds like the transmission needs work. It is a serious problem. Consult a local mechanic.
Don't drive it, but have it towed to a reputable garage that can flush the transmission. Driving it with the oil may cause serious damage to the transmission.
It may just need a fluid/filter change and then again it may be a more serious problem. My advice is to take it to a Acura/Honda dealer or trusted transmission shop for service immediately. Continuing to drive in this condition may do serious damage to the transmission.
How will you back out of your driveway or parking stall?
The simplest answer is that the transmission is damaged beyond normal operation and needs to be serviced. This normally isn't something that a household mechanic can fix. It requires removing the engine the transmission from the frame. The usual culprits are jammed or cracked forward engagement pistons, but the problem can be even more serious and more deeply rooted. It is recommended that if you vehicle shows these signs (Drives only in reverse) then you should take it to an ASE Endorsed Mechanic or shop.
P1811 is transmission component slipping. Seek professional help immediately or you will do serious damage to the transmission if you continue to drive it.
IF you have over filled the transmission this will cause it to bubble, this could cause serious damage, drain and refill with the proper ammount.
You are in need of a serious transmission service. Your fluid should look bright red new, and dark red when it needs to be replaced, but black indicates it is overdue for a transmission service.
