Shifting into reverse doesnt engage reverse, it acts like a second neutral gear until I rev up to 3500 rpm and then it slams into whoevr is parked behind me. Help, my insurance cant take the rear end damage.


#2

Why would you rev your engine to 3500 rpm? Your transmission needs to be checked by a mechanic. It may just be low on fluid or some other simple problem.


#3

guess I should have included this… i had the fluid checked, it was fine and clean, but i had it flushed and replaced anyway. Same problem. I reved the engine because that is what you do when you are backing up is hit the gas, and when it didnt go anywhere I kept my foot on the pedal to see if it would engage, which it did…I didnt really hit anyone, I was using artistic embelishment to make my story sound more interesting.
