Cause u ruin. The transmission. My husband works on cars he said to tell u took locked up the reverse gears in it it will work in the other gears that didn't. Get shaving. In them


Can it be fix pretty cheap


Probably not. Reverse is usually the first gear to give out. You need to have a shop look at it, but very likely you need to have it rebuilt.
