Why wont my car go in reverse or neutral
Have you checked your transmission fluid? If the stick shows empty, your transmission is dead
the shifter has an interlock that wont let it release until you press the brake and that sends currant to a solenoid that pulls a small lever from locking the shifter from moving, most have a way of overriding this feature listed in the operator manual in case the battery is dead and you need to pull it out of park to maybe tow it
I check it goes fowerd but not reverse
I have a toyota corolla 2010 S edition 1.8 engine. I shift gear in reverse & neutral won't move on reverse, Or can't move car in neutral. But, It drives good in drive, What would seem the problem be??
I have just found that if you are talking about an Automatic shift, not standard/Manual shift. Under the (black) outline cover around the PRND shifter, you can lift that up to reveal the unexposed gear shift beneath. ON THE PASSENGER SIDE, you will see a (white/offwhite) plastic circle end attached to a cable running towards the front of the car. There is a half inch (projection) metal post pointing towards the passenger door which moves when you move the gear shifter. The problem with my car was the (missing) cap that used to keep the circle of the cable ON the post, had disintegrated over the 11 years and it let the circle slide off the post with the roads we have here. My car went from going forward, and starting to not going into reverse and then not restarting either. My Tow Guy showed me this and slipped it back on to prove that was all that was needed, except maybe a cable tie to stick to the metal end to keep it (the circle loop) on. Hope this helps someone down the line, dealer wants a min of $550. to replace the entire cable.
Ja.. please help my daughter has her first car and about to spend that much on a transmission...even though you elaborated really well... please do for us in more detail
