I have a 2008 cobalt, and it only has forward gears. Reverse is not working, the car will jumps like it wants to work, but it doesn't. Any ideas of what this could be?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car would rev up to 3 RPM if not higher at times before taking off in drive. I think my transmission was slipping before.

Take it to a transmission shop and have it evaluated. It may be a shift module or some other electronic component, on the other hand the transmission may be about to fail. I'm assuming you've checked your fluid level, right?
