Less than ten minutes ago i tried to put me 1992 N/T plymouth laser in to reverse and all that would happen was a slight increase in the RPM's.

i tried to put it in neutral and it went forward so did everything else except park(which worked fine) and reverse(which didnt do anything). I know this might already be posted but i was wondering if there was any specific thing that might be wrong.

may i also add that in park my RPM's wont go above 2k. Please i really need help as soon as possible.

:wall: :poke: :freak: Thank you.

I take it you have an automatic.Probly the only reason you havent had help is because you need to be more specific with what you have and state you have a non turbo automatic. Kinda like that,then state your problem in plain english.You will get alot more help if you take the time to explain yourself.

Check tranny fluid... Sounds to me like your tranny is shot. There could be issues with the linkages. Might want to check that out as well when you are checking the fluid.

I think the linkage runs were the shifter is and under the car to the tranny?

Where in NY?

If you're anywhere near L.I. give Gary at Mitsubishi Graveyard a call (dsm shop) because I believe he sometimes has good used a/t's for sale and he works on them too and is where i'd go even though it's like 1-1/2 hr from me.

Where not to go: Aamco or equivalant

Definitely sounds like it's toast... how did it go forward in neutral, like it engaged in a gear and went forward? or you could roll it forward?

Best bet is to get on your local dsm boards (if there's any up there) and get recomendations.

Mitsu dealer in Florida wanted $1900 for a re-manned 1g FWD turbo trans about 5 yrs ago (not including labor). Instead I went to aamco and for $1,950 plus tax they did a CRAPPY rebuild while BS'en about the cost and stringing me along the whole way and i THOUGHT their warentee would at least GUARENTEE no problems but I found out the hard way that their warentee is also crap :(

it engages then drives

I'd check the linkage because if 'R' gives you neutral and 'N' gives you drive it sounds like it could be off by 1 spot. Check the linkage that moves in the engine compartment when the gear selector is moved. If you stand on the passenger side of car and look into the middle of engine compartment down low but just above the trans housing you should be able to see it move. It's adjustable by loosening a nut on it.

Also the more specific you are in describing the problem the more we can help you out.

Solved by...."Actually i was just screwing around in a parking lot, i shifted it into park and then hard into reverse; it made a grinding noise and BAM look i have it fixed. No lie at all i was soo happy."

Yeaaa... and how long before it un-fixes...
Sounds like you've been shined upon by the golden light, and you've been granted a limited time in which to drive/fix the car properly =P
