If it is an automatic transmission check the Transmission Fluid level. I assume it has a 4 speed overdrive transmission,if so it could be a broken reverse band or as mentioned by another tech it could also be a bad reverse shell-- which is one of the most common failures of the 4T60E transmission. Usually if the shell is broken you can pull the bottom pan and there will be large pieces of metal on the magnet. good luck
Reverse and forward gears
Your going to have to get your transmission rebuilt or get another put in.
im assuming that its an automatic,if so then its just because your transmition is messed up,or your rear gears(not the trans gears)are damaged.
If your Pontiac runs a 700r4 gm transmission you have stripped a reverse input shell. The transmission needs to come out for repair.
It means that in your Grand AM SE 3.3 your emergency brake is broken.
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.
3 forward, 1 reverse
Forward and reverse. It's an automatic
It has 16 forward and 8 reverse.
YOU BETTER FIND IT!
6 or usually 7 forward gears and 1 reverse, though this is rarely used.
no oil in the tranny will cause the bands to streatch and will only allow your trany to work in revers
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.
do you have all forward gears? if yes, you have broken reverse gear (one turning the spin into reverse) in the transmission, if you miss also some forward gears it shifts rough, tranny is to be rebuilt... either way it's expensive fix
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.
Four forward, one reverse.
The forward pump is shot or the throttle has a blown gasket
The transmission is broken. Take it to a shop.
Tranny is going out
The typical turbo 350 has three speeds forward and one reverse.
your problem is the transmission. you need to replace the transmission
Your forward gears are out in your transmission I recommend you take it to a shop.
The shifter. D is for drive which is forward and R is for reverse. N is for neutral. You have to have the breaks pressed down all the way in order to move out of park and into D or R.
if it was automatic it had a torqueflite tranny and had 3 forward gears and a reverse and if stick shift you had either a 3 speed tranny (rare) or a 4 speed.
You can do this by loosening up the gears. If you are having difficulties, you can take it into a mechanic.
