Q: I put my car in reverse and push the gas but my RPMs won't read

asked by on

My car go in every gear but resveres

My car has 1580000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

This may be a sign of low transmission fluid or a faulty transmission control solenoid. As you may know, automatic transmissions use pressurized hydraulic fluid to change gears. Every time a gear change is required, the car’s computer activates a transmission solenoid, which directs transmission fluid into the valve body to engage the correct gear. When this is faulty or not working properly, it can cause a delay in gear shifting or, in some cases, cause the car to not shift at all.

I would recommend having an expert, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your location to determine why the car will not shift properly and suggest the necessary repairs.
