I have a 99 buick century. I put car in reverse and tried to back up but car stopped. I put
it in drive and it went forward but it still wont go in reverse and let me back up. Any idea
if this is transmission or what?

I'd say your right about the transmission. Have your mechanic take a look at it. Do you think your parking brake is hanging up?

I don't think the parking brake is hanging up. The car also made a whining noise every time I used the brakes. Had never had any problems with car until now.

perhaps the transmission and/or motor mounts have changed the geometry of the selector....have someone scoot under there with a huge screwdriver or pry bar and see if the mounts are supple or torn~
