Hi: BabyGT: Thank you for your reply. I need help!
OK: All other gears shift fine no problems at all. no grinding.
Not on a hill, it would not matter. It was working just fine even going into reverse, then it stopped going into reverse. I don't mean sometimes it will go into reverse and sometimes it will. I mean it will not go into reverse ever.
I tried all the suggestion: double clutch, go to first fifth etc. It will not go into reverse. The clutch is the original, has 70,000 miles on it, does not slip.
Whatever happened: It was working fine one day the next it would not work. I am hoping someone out there has had the same problem?
Hi PNYXPRESS: No it will not go into reverse with the engine turned off.
I even tried parking on a slant: Started the car holding the break put it in first then tried to go into reverse holding pressure on the shift while releasing the break so it would slowly roll backwards hoping this would align the gears if that was the problem; did not work. It is like the shift moves to the point where I shove it into reverse and it stops.
Factory shifter? Nothing aftermarket involving the trans? This might be kinda dumb but pop up the trim around the shifter and make sure something stupid like a pen or anything dumb isn't lodged under there physically stopping you from being able to put it in reverse. Apart from a mis adjusted aftermarket shifter, or something jamming it up, sounds like your trans has crapped out on reverse on you. If you are not sure whether its aftermarket or not take a pic for us and we can tell you.
