Check the fluid for a burnt smell or odd color. While driving the car with low transmission fluid its possible that the bands were damaged.
by going to a body shop
This is the first time I have ever heard anyone state that neutral works fine...................as if not doing anything would go wrong. It's time for "The Transmission Doctor"
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.
A reverse idler gear in a manual transmission. It converts the reverse gears turning direction into the outputshaft to reverse its direction. The transmission can not spin clockwise when the reverse idler is engaged thus it only spins backwards not forward.
truck will only go forward not in reverse does this mean the transmission is gone
that sounds like your transsion you should have it looked at although you can drive it with out reverse for quite a while
A Super Beetle with a manual transmission has four forward gears and one reverse. A Super Beetle with an Autostick transmission has three forward and one reverse.
If no forward or slipping forward suspect problem in the forward clutch and circuit. Reverse does not use the same applied components
Put it into reverse when moving rapidly forward.
Your transmission is gone, you need to rebuild it.
3 forward, 1 reverse
Time for a transmission rebuild.
The transmission may not shift or engage in forward or reverse until the car warmed up for a few reasons. Two examples of why the transmission will not engage is low or no fluid levels or a leak.
Make sure transmission fluid level is correct Bad transmission pump?
your problem is the transmission. you need to replace the transmission
Your 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis may need a new transmission or something as simple as transmission fluid.
the forward gear clutch pack is worn out. the only solution is to get the transmission rebult.
Most likely your transmission needs replaced.
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.
have your transmission checked, you need a new one.
Check transmission Fluids.
Begin by removing the belt from your 1999 Mercury Mystique alternator. Remove the wiring harness from the back of the alternator. Remove the alternator retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install your new alternator.
The forward pump is shot or the throttle has a blown gasket
