1977 CUTLASS SUPREME THAT ONLY GOES IN REVERSE... NEED HELP!!!!
Cutlass Supreme and it will only go in reverse. But when I jacked it in the air and put it in drive the tires
roll but put it back down again no forward. What can be the problem? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP!!!!!
Sounds like the transmission needs service.
i was thinking that but I thought that if its the transmission i shouldnt be able to go forward at all? or am i mistaking?
everything is fine with the trans levels thats the first solution i went for
forward clutches smoked,99.9 percent that 1/10 percent made the wheels spin up on jacks. its an easy fix by comparison.id go used .little money cost
@ judge yes a 350 turbo
@7jimmy7 so u say it might be the forward clutch?
clutches discs about 6 facings worn thin from normal wear.id say
@ 7jimmy7 do you know how often they go bad? have you ever replaced a forward clutch before? i just recently purchased this car from the first owner and im restoring it.
A lot of people think automatic transmissions last forever. They have clutches that get replaced and bands that can be tightened along with new fluid and filters. That's all part of the transmission service I mentioned.
The Turbo 350 is a great transmission, but it does not last forever. I would say it is time to rebuild. Not a huge job. IF, though, you plan to drive the car quite a bit on the highway, find a good 200R4 in the salvage yard and have it rebuilt strong enough for the engine in the Cutlass. That will give you both a locking torque converter and overdrive. The gas mileage improvement will more than cover the up charge fairly quickly.
simplest thing first..if has fluid, check linkage...is it even shifting into drive? did you run over anything? or force it into a gear?
