Car only goes into drive (no reverse)

Asked by Jul 30, 2010 at 07:48 PM about the Mercedes-Benz 190-Class

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a '85 Mercedes E190 and when I try and shift from park it only goes into drive. I shift to Reverse and it goes forward. Neutral=forward etc. etc. I asked my step-dad who was a mechanic and he thinks from the sound of it it may be a transmission problem. Is there anything I can do (short term), short of pushing the car backwards everytime I need to go in reverse?

sorry to say it , but 99% of the time when you lose reverse your tranny is done.

Bye bye trans. 722. Seals gone. Not bad to rebuild though.
