I had my 00 eclipse gt automatic do this. took it to mr transmition and they cleared codes that popped up and it stopped. if i drove forward for a while and warmed the car up, then reverse would work. hope this helps.
Check the transmission fluid for odd color or smells. If all of the forward gears work ok then the transmission fluid may not be flowing properly through the valves. The filter could be stopped up, or the bands for reverse could be worn.
Check transmission fluid and fill to mark on dipstick. If this doesn't help, expect to replace the transmission.
Drive 1 locks the automatic transmission into first gear (preventing an upshift). Very good to use when parked or stopped on a very steep slope and you need to move forward and do not want the transmission to shift. Drive 2 locks the automatic transmission into second gear. This is sometimes referred to as a "snow" drive position, as it causes the engine power to be applied to the wheels much more slowly (via converter slippage within the transmission) minimizing actual wheel-spin when accelerating from a stopped position.
It probally is the transmission or your brakes could be slipping.
Its probably the actual transmission itself. It happened to my moms 99 Kia sephia and then it just started working for a few months than the tranny just stopped working all together so I would suggest getting it checked out
13bn771g729 shuts off when put in reverse
When a chemical reaction reaches equilibrium it means that neither the forward nor the reverse reaction have stopped.
It is not a good idea to drive with two feet on an automatic transmission unless your stopped on a hill. In that case you would press the brake with your left foot and the gas just a little with your right foot.
air intake more than fuel needs reconfiguration
Low fluid level, stopped up filter, or a very serious transmission or torque converter problem.
Had same trouble with my 04 Sequoia.. Flushed and change transmission fluid and had no more trouble..
the O ringseal is not in right, the pump is sucking air
It sounds like the 99 Grand Prix has slippage in the reverse band, or a stopped fluid path. Changing the transmission fluid and filter could help, if not then the transmission needs to be checked by a transmission since the band is inside of it.
1967 was the first year for the AutoStick. Really a manual transmission with an electrically operated clutch, it also had a torque convertor so it could stopped in gear. Works great when everything is in tip top shape, VW stopped using it in 1976.
depends is it automatic or manual? if its automatic its more than likely that your transmission isn't shifting into first gear
There are many reasons why your reverse gears stopped working. There could be a leak or a plug for example.
Possible a stopped up/dirty trans filter.It can be changed.Possible a pressure problem/Possibly a vacum modulator on older transmissions
All GM cars use Dexron transmission fluid. It may say Dexron III or Dexron VI. You can put either in your car. It used to be Dexron II, but they stopped making it so you just use whatever Dexron currently is on stores shelves. It's fairly common. Dexron III ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid).
Check the fluid level to start with. If level is ok, then the filter could be stopped up, or there could be internal damage.
Could be as simple as being in need of a tune up.
IF it is a rear wheel drive vehicle it mabe something wrong with the gears in your final drive...
For that model year, the automatic transmission had four speeds (although I believe they stopped putting the 'Overdrive' decal on their vehicles by that point, as it was standard), and the manual transmission was five speed.
I doubt it is a transmission problem. It sounds like the engine is in need of some attention maybe even some motor mounts.
transmission and gear box, also it might be u r having sex
