Bad clutch pak
Shift linkages not put in the correct spots.
The lift and pull reverse gear is found in cars like the Chevrolet Optra. To shift on to reverse, lift the ring below the gear knob and shift on to 1st gear like you would always do, but with the ring being held.
I would look on the transmission by the gear shift linkage.
I had a similar problem where it would shift into reverse or drive but not go immediately. Or sometimes it would drop out of gear and you'd have to rev up to get it to fall back into gear. i replaced the transmission filter and it fixed the problem.
You may have a broken spring which disengages the transmission allowing it to shift or it is bad linkage going to the transmission.
On the vast majority of modern cars today it is impossible to actually shift to reverse while driving at high speed. Modern transmissions have an override safety device that prevents the transmission from going into reverse at any speed forward that would harm the transmission. You could put the selector in reverse, but the transmission would not shift to reverse. On older transmissions without this feature, you would probably destroy the transmission and possible have an accident.
clutch plates could be welded to gather
That would be alternating current or 'AC'.
. . . then that would be alternating current, or simply, 'AC'.
If it is an automatic transmission then your reverse clutch pack is probably burnt out in which case your transmission needs to be rebuilt If it it a manual transmission and it wont go into the reverse gear it is probably a shift synchronizer.
Alternating current would fit this description.
Yes/No, because if it is parked in reverse, the back wheels would be dragging, and soon shift gears (If repossessed by a chain truck), but if it is a flatbed tow truck, then yes, it can be repossessed, because the back wheels would not be dragging, therefor the wheels would not shift gears and ruin the vehicle, or reverse of of the truck!Why are you asking, has your car bin repossessedbefore?-Zachary T.

the linkage between the trans and shifter is what i would check first. also, there is a switch that prevents the car from starting unless its in N or P
If it still has a reverse, just in the wrong place, then the linkage or cable from the shift lever to the transmission has streched or fallen out of alignment.
How would you know about my car? Get literate! The friendly answer is worn engine mounts or to high idle speed.
The shift censor could be going bad. There may also be a problem with the transmission linkage which would cause this problem.
Check the shift linkage to see if it is loose , and has gotten out of adjustment . Unhook both the high /reverse linkage and the low linkage . See if you can shift it out of gear with a pair of pliers . Then see if you can get it in high and reverse . If you can then adjust the linkage .
neutral safety switch/ or reverse switch faulty thanks. how would i go about replacing the safety switch? is it difficult?
Check your shift linkage as one linkage is for low . another for high and reverse .
Poler shifts actually are impossible because the gravity on the earth and the gravity would be to great for earth to reverse the other direction
Well, first, you didn't specify the vehicle. Secondly, I don't think you quite grasp how transmissions work. The shift cable would be what makes a transmission go into reverse, and that'll be operated either by a manual lever (the shift column) or by an electric solenoid (in push-button transmissions).
the only problem that you can repair yourself would be with the linkage. but if all other gears work except reverse then the problem is probably internal and should be inspected by a professional. it makes a big difference if the trans. is manual or automatic also.
