Q: No Acceleration in reverse gear, what could be the problem? 2001 pontiac firebird 3.8l v6

asked by on

I have no acceleration in reverse gear, it will go into gear just no acceleration. What could be the problem?

My car has 151777 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

This is caused by an internal pressure leak to the reverse band or the band is slipping from excessive wear. Try having your transmission serviced and make sure fluid if full to see if it helps.
