The linkage in the transmition is loose.
I am having the same problem. I have brought the car in 3 times. They tell me there is nothing wrong, obviously they have not spent much time looking at the car, this happens to me 25% of the time. HELP!!!
I am still having the same problem. The VW dealership had it for over a week and when I got it back they had put a 5 centimetre scratch on the hood and cracked my windshield, then proceeded to tell me that it was there when I brought the car in. They have also told me that what i perceive to be the car having problems shifting gears, is just the car "downshifting" because it's a "low-emissions vehicle". Well, I'm still having the same problems and I haven't gotten any answers form the dealership. This is the first and last VW I'll ever own. The lack of customer service is appalling at the two dealerships I've dealt with.
A car might stall when shifting from park to reverse if the idle is set too low. It is also possible that the engine stalls because it is not fully warmed up before shifting from park to reverse.
if you were in reverse, then you would be for not being aware of what was behind you when you started to move.
It is important to know the signs and symptoms of car parts going bad. A thump sound when a car is in reverse is usually made when the transmission is going bad and shifting incorrectly.?æ
would an automatic transmission car jerk when shifting after having had a transmission flush
Came up to a stop light and when the light changed the car would not move.
who would buy a $1.7M car that doesn't reverse
because there is no further GEAR in reverse.
On the gear-lever. Just pull it up before shifting it into gear. My girlfriend woke me up because of the same reason. Who drives a car without knowing how to reverse it?? :-D
Yes, you could severely damage a transmission by shifting into reverse while moving forward. But the odds of the transmission actually going into reverse are not good because there are safety mechanisms in place to prevent it from happening.
Automatic or manual?
A jeep can stall out after running for a few minutes if there are impurities in the fuel or if the transmission is messed. A faulty transmission may also be noticed if there is a delay in shifting or someone needs to restart the car every now and then.
Most likely the reverse band (in an automatic) - Also note that some of these cars used an anti-fill/drain-back valve in the valve body, this can cause a delay in how long it takes for reverse or low to start working.
How would you get your car in and out of your driveway? How would you get out of a parking stall unless you pulled through and there was no curb or car blocking you? It is not uncommon to find yourself in a tight area where all you can do is reverse to get out while driving. I would say it is not safe.
It would have to do with the transmission or maybe there isn't enough oil in the car?
Broken cable or linkage? Transmission trouble (?)
Difficulty shifting, can't reach first gear and grinds to reverse, have to stomp on the brakes to downshift, basically any sort of unusual difficulty with shifting, car jumps forward when clutch is engaged or moves while on a flat surface and clutch is engaged.
Shift linkages not put in the correct spots.
No, bad front wheel bearings would not prevent a transmission from shifting. If your car has bad front wheel bearings you will notice wheel noise or wheel looseness.
Its not in reverse gear.
Because reverse is a lower ratio gear than drive and puts less load on the engine.
Who's car? if you mean why does a car not reverse sometimes, its probably due to failure in the gears.
Most likely your transmission needs replaced.
If a car has an automatic transmission, potential problems include:not shifting into forward or reversenot shfting automatically into higher gears when vehicle speed increasesnot shifting automatically into lower gears when the vehicle slows downnot downshifting to a lower gear to produce more power when a driver pushes down quickly on the gas pedalnot shifting into neutral or "Park" positionsnot starting in the right gear, or skipping gears, or failing to shift to top gear
There are many benefits of owning a car with automatic transmission. These benefits would include the automatic shifting of gears as the vehicle moves.
