Why would the transmission on a 2001 LS jerk into forward or reverse in the morning and sometimes after being warm?

Low fluid level, and/or dirty filter. If hot rodded, then extra wear on the transmission.

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.

truck will only go forward not in reverse does this mean the transmission is gone

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.

Put it into reverse when moving rapidly forward.

Your transmission is gone, you need to rebuild it.

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

User Avatar

could be either transmission shift linkage not engaging reverse ( stops at neutral ) worn joint connectors sometimes cause this. or reverse clutches or gears bad inside transmission.

your problem is the transmission. you need to replace the transmission

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.

Most likely your transmission needs replaced.

the forward gear clutch pack is worn out. the only solution is to get the transmission rebult.

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.

When a Mercedes C280 will not move in forward or reverse it is an indication that the transmission is going out or has already gone out in the car. This is true of all cars, not just a Mercedes.

When a Toyota 4Runner will not move in reverse, it could be that the reverse band in the transmission is broken. Another possibility is a problem with a range selector. Both problems would need the services of a transmission expert because the transmission would have to be pulled.

To allow the vehicle to go forward or reverse. To "transmit" the engine's power to the drive axles.

Bang depending on the vehicle, you will ruin the transmission.
