Q: Q: no reverse

asked by on

Transmission would't engage on reverse

My car has 97 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The first thing to check is the transmission’s fluid level. If the transmission works in the other ranges, like park and drive, there is a very good chance the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced. If you would like this verified, consider YourMechanic to diagnose the issue with your gears.
