Q: Reverse not working , though other gears still do.

asked by on

Reverse gear is gone. The car still goes into other gears.

Assuming your vehicle has a manual transmission, it is possible that your shift cable bushings could be severely worn causing the reverse gear not to engage as this is a common problem on Dodge vehicles. If the shift cable bushings are good you may have an internal issue within your transmission and replacement or overhauling the transmission may be necessary. I would recommend having your vehicle’s gears inspected by a technician to diagnose the issue.
