What happens when you put a car in reverse while driving fast like on a freeway?

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.

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.

Can your car be repossessed while parked in reverse?

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.

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 .

Where is the reverse gear switch in 1996 car van model?

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).

What would cause a 1996 Pontiac Sunfire not to shift into reverse?

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.
