If you have to brake suddenly and something from the back seat pushes your gear shift to reverse while car is in motion is this a valid loss claim?
It can, however most modern cars have a switch that prevents that from happening say late 2000? it completely bypasses the parking gear but, it not it can really do Lots of damage
What would be the problem if your car doesn't have reverse and you have to manualy shift gears to pick up speed?
modulater valve . may be vacume line if applicable.or electric modulator switch if applicable.whichever one ,are located on transmission housing
No, and in most states illegal if involved in an accident (Georgia Overdrive) i think what your asking is it safe if the car stalls while your moveing done the road can i put it in neutral,yes, it will not hurt anything and you can roll safely to the side of the road.when you are stopped put it b...
What you're describing COULD be what is called "disk brake chatter". The problem is caused by heat, which eventually will warp the rotors. If the rotor is warped the disk brake pads grab with different force as the warped rotor changes angle toward the brake pads. If the problem IS disk brake cha...

When parked downhill and need to reverse uphill when you put in reverse the car rolls forwards is this right or is something not right?
Assuming you're driving a car with a manual gearbox, a reverse hill start is fairly straight-forward.To Start with, you need to have your handbrake fully on, this will stop the car from rolling.With your clutch pedal pushed fully down, select reverse, then gradually bring your clutch pedal up tow...

have your brakes checked
What happens to you when you are riding in a car your seat belt is unfastened and the driver steps on the brake suddenly?
If your seatbelt is unfastened and the driver suddenly steps on the brake real hard, you will fly forward and go crashing into whatever is in front of you. Then you will complain, "That hurt." I will then tell you, "If we would have been in an accident, you would have done much more than hit the ...
the spark timing has to be adjusted (on older vehicles only)
Check the A/T fluid. If it is ok, seek professional help. Continuing to drive it can do some serious damage.
Transmission in 1999 Tahoe shifts at higher rpm than it used too you have to let off the accelerator in order for it to shift at a lower rpm It only does this from 1st gear to second gear?
Considering its age, i assume it probably got maybe 150 - 165,000 miles on it? My first question would be to ask if the transmission was regularly flushed as required by Chevy? If the answer is no or you don't know, it's possible it may never have been. If it's ever been used to tow anything will...
Your 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2 L Automatic Transmission is not shifting properly in order to get it to shift from 3 to 4 you have to shift it into neutral for a second and then back to Drive.?
This is a very common problem on Dodge transmissions and I'm about to fix this problem myself on my 1997 5.9L 1500. It's most likely being caused by faulty ATF selenoids. Replacing these selenoids will fix your problems, but most likely only temporarely. They usually become clogged due to metal s...

1: Car seat2: Baby3: Child4: Toys5: Purse
The snap rings that hold the shifter in place have popped out and you will need to remove the boot to put everything back where it belongs.
It depends what you mean by 'safe'. Will putting the car in neutral damage the engine? No...when the car is in neutral the two plates that make up the clutch are seperated. Therefore there is no power being transferred to the wheels. However, as there is no where for the engine's stored power to...
When your car is coasting 20mph without applying the brakes you feel a sudden drag could this be the transmission downshifting from 3rd to 1st skipping 2cd?
you can contact All Automatic 928-768-4112 and ask bobby
"If the transmission was not designed with a reverse inhibit feature, engaging reverse while driving forward will, most likely, stall the engine," Renneker said."The car won't lock-up or skid, but it will slow down a bit and act like the transmission is in neutral."
Its gone for ever, I am not sticking my hand in there.Seriously though it is relatively easy to remove the seat from the car if you need to to retrieve something.
If i am having problems sticking in my shifter into first gear and in reverse on a standard shift what might be the problem?
the clutch adjustment.if its not hydaulic.
If your name and your deceased spouse name is on your car title and you want to trade in this car can you do this without removing deceased spouse name from car title in the state of Texas?
If you and your deceased spouse were listed as "OR" on the title, it only takes on signature to release the title to the new owner. However, if the names were listed with "AND", then both signatures would be required. Since this is no longer physically possible, you need to take the title, along ...
What needs to be done to your 2000 Chevy Tahoe A71 if you are having trouble shifting from park to any other gear?
Check shift linkage for wear or binding or bent parts
When you ride a bicycle at full speed and the bike stops suddenly Why do you have to push hard on the handlebars to keep from flying forward?
It's called inertia, or conservation of energy. Basically it means that an object that is moving likes to keep moving, and that an object at rest likes to remain at rest. When you're on the bike you are that moving object that would like to remain moving, so to resist that force you have to brace...
It could damage the transmission. Normally it will break or damage the park pall gear. From your question, I have to assume you have doen this. If there appears to be no damage, then don't worry about it. You may be ok. You bet it is! If you actually manaqged to get it into park - then you would ...
After reversing out the drive I could not put the car in 1st gear and was stuck in reverse the car has been back to the garage 3 times in the last 6 months regarding this matter can anyone help?
Vw uses a linkage system that has small bushings and plastic tie-rods that wear over a period of time. These are situated just on top of the tranny in a linkage unit. They can be dismantled and replace. Also the base of the gear lever has a replaceable bushing. If these are okay and you have a no...

I drive an automatic car i dont have to push in the brake to switch gears how do i fix that to where i have to push in the brake?
It would be very difficult to install this safety device on a vehicle that did not come equipped with it in the first place. It may be possible, so I suggest you talk to a ASE certified mechanic familiar with your model vehicle.
What do you do if your car starts decelerating in fifth gear and you have to put it in first gear again?
Well hopefully your not going from 5th gear speeds stright to 1st... but go to a tranny shop and explain the problem
I hope you take it to a garage and have the brakes inspected. Might be a brake fluid leak.
While driving car it lost all gears Pulled over it idled fine but will not shift into any gears got it back from having a new water pump main belt broke and damaged the crank position sensor on the WA?
Check Crank Position Sensor. Is it still connected? Was it improperly installed, came loose and is now damaged (again)? Could be cam sensor. Dumping ECM codes will tell you. Engine could be running in Emergency Run Mode which is about 400 RPM ONLY (so you have the ability to move vehicle if it is...
I have an 89honda accord lx is stuck in reverse the gear shift moves but the car will only go in reverse please help?
sounds like the selector has broken from main box will require mech or someone mechanically minded to fix problem
If you are driving a car in 5th gear and you want to come down to 4th gear If by mistake you went in reverse gear is it possible Pl clarify if there is any locking for reverse gear to avoid accident?
It is not possible unless you are driving a very very old car.The reverse gear is mechanically blocked by a synchronizer to prevent exactly this kind of thing.
If someone steals something from a store and gets in your car and someone from the store gets your license plate number.can you the driver be prosecuted?

I hit a parked car while reversing and dint stop nor saw damage done and now rcvd accident claim form frm their insurance so should I call back to settle it outside or talk to my insurance first in MA?
You have pretty much hit and ran a vehicle. If their insurance has contacted you already, I would notify your insurance pay your deductible, but your insurance rate will go up pretty high. Your lucky that that's all they did. Usually they would arrest you for something like that.
You had your car in neutral while coasting down a hill and while coasting at the bottom at about 20-25mph you accidentally shifted into reverse did you seriously damage your transmission?
You would have to try it yourself and see. Please report back your results here.
You would pump the brake pedal to try to maintain control and steering.
Your option is to CALL the lender who had it repossessed and find out how much it will cost to get it back. Repossession is a matter between YOU and the LENDER. There is no state agency that oversees the process.
What makes an automatic car make a noise when it is turned on and when you change gears from reverse to park or park to any gear?
There's a few reasons:When a automatic transmission vehicle is turned on, the small but the seemingly small burst of energy it takes to start the car by means of combustion, it may rock the motor mounts and cause maybe a moving.. or bumping sorta sound. When you move the gear lever in any positio...
What is wrong with Gear box linkage It became uncoupled on Peugeot 106 Got it back but only have 1st 3rd and 5th gears but it won't go into 2nd 4th reverse Is it the linkage or something else?
There is quite obviously a mudkip shortage in your car. Simply pour more mudkips into your storage container to increase the mudkip:car aspect ratio. After that start her up and if rainbows stream from your exhaust then you know shes running fine. Look here, its rather simple really: Basically 'S...
There's a few possibilities. It could be the transmission itself.. whether an actual mechanical problem or a need to replace the transmission fluid. It could also be the shift settings in your ECM. I'd recommend you go either to a service shop or a parts supplier like Auto Zone, O'Reilly's, Advan...
How do you fix a 1992 Lincoln Town car drivers side seat that goes forward and all other position but is stuck in reverse of motion?
You will have to take it apart and see what failed. Once you have done that you can determine the next step of repairing or replacing what broke. Being that old, used parts may be an option.

Contact your local Credit Counseling Service. They may also be able to help with other creditors, allowing you to have...
If you are driving under 30 MPH it probably won't do much damage, but shifting to neutral at highway speeds and you will ruin your engine.If you start skidding on an icy road (probably going 20 MPH or less) shifting to neutral will take you out of the skid and stop your vehicle immediately. Doing...

My 1999 tracker will not shift out of park if you have your foot on the brake keep your foot off shifts fine previous owner states has been this way since new he thought it was normal how to fix?
Without knowing the Tracker specifically generally it's the other way around, sounds like a simple wire cross either on a repair or at the factory.It could be specifically for the sense switch or the brake switch, which if you have ABS would be something you want to fix.
Nothing... But it probably wont let you start it until you put it back in park.
If your car was just repossessed will they let you get it back if you have the money and how long will it take to get it back?
get it back?? prolly, depends on your payment record,ect. They really dont want the car, they want the MONEY. How long?? a day or two
Depends on the prior circumstances and promises made.
1992 Chevy Corsica starts fine But If you try to put the gear from park into reverse or neutral it stays in drive you cannot go into reverse What is the problem and how can you fix it the ceapest?
sounds like a transmission replacement is needed. you could always buy it from a scrap yard or online, but you most likely wont get a warranty and it may not even work once it is installed. the best route would be to just buy a new transmission, and if you have the know how, install it yourself.
Emergency brake cable doesn't workWhenI push down on the e-brake it goes to the floor but will not hold the car from moving in gear.?
1st adjust the rear service brakesThen check parking brake if still does not holdAdjustment should be at the junction of the cables under vehicleSet to "3" clicks and adjust so vehicle is held in place at that point
When my 4.3 v6 is in the middle of the shift from first to second it takes a while to go in second gear?
First off, a 4.3 V6 does not shift gears, it's a engine not a transmission. If the transmission in the car is a automatic then I would #1. check the kick down cable, also known as the detent cable, they can be adjusted. #2. take it to a repair shop that you trust and know and have the transmissio...
It goes into reverse gear, nothing else.
Can you claim a vehicle if its been in your possession for years the owner is deceased and owed you money for back rent?
Possibly.1) You must be able to PROVE the debt, in writing. A written lease will go a long way on proving back rent.2) The executor of the deceased estate has oversight over all assets and property. That person would have to be notified of the existing of the asset. This can be determined by sear...
If you are homeless and indigent and your traffic citation is 7 years old can you file a motion to have it dismissed?
Yes, under TATE v. SHORT, 401 U.S. 395 (1971) the US Supreme court ruled that a person cannot be held to pay a fine if they are indigent and that they cannot be jailed for a fine only offense; under this precedence the court would have no choice but to dismiss.
Your car won't start unless you pushed the shift lever forward in park. After a while it would not start in Park so you put it in Neutral to start and that worked. Now it won't start at al?
The Park and/or Neutral switch is out of adjustment. There is a hidden switch that must be engaged by mechanical means in order for the starter motor to be engaged. This is to prevent accidental starting while the car is in a forward or reverse motion gear, which could result in the vehicle movin...
What do you do if the throttle cable came off and the car won't go in reverse and is in between gear and won't come out?
Odds are really good that you have piled up the kick down cable. Disconnect it fromthe transmission, manually reset it to the point where it will "flop" about 1-2 inchesand reconnect. This should be done with the accelerator cable disconnected.
it really depends what state your in but it is just smarter to have it in the back seat
You can't place your 1994 Grand Marquis in Park even though the gear shift lever indicates that the car is in Park but the car is actually in the reverse gear What would cause that?
There are two possibilities. 1. There are three bolts above the gas pedal on the steering column that hold the shifter lever in place. Those bolts may have come loose as it did on my 1993. You will notice slop in the shifter if this is the case. Tighten up those bolts. It is not fun to get to. 2....
Yes, it is the law in the U.S.
you snapped the little pin in the trany. big money
You have Chrysler 97 Concorde the problem is the your car runs only on 2nd gear and doesn't shift to 3rd gear engine make a lot of sound when you reach to speed 60 kmh need to buy new one?
If the vehicle is stuck in 2nd gear and does not change gears.... you more then likely have a bad speed sensor. The transmission is electronic and the 2nd gear is considered the " Safe" mode. Take it and have the transmission computer checked for codes.
Very well could be the ignition module but before replacing it check to see if you are getting spark to your plugs if so then that is not the problem . please include year make and model and motor to help answer these type of questions
Why it is difficult to push a stalled car from rest than to keep it in motion once it has started to run?
You have to overcome the inertia to move anything from a standstillYes, That's Newton's Law of Motion: An object not in motion will remain not in motion until acted upon by a outside force, and an object in motion will continue to remain in motion until acted upon by an outside force....that's wh...
If you hit a car parked illegally across from your driveway while backing out are you responsible for repairing the car that is parked illegally?
Yes. Being illegally parked does not affect fault. If you strike a parked vehicle, it is ALWAYS your fault because you have a duty to ensure the way was clear before moving.
You had just let off the brake from shifting into reverse and I bumped into a car that drove right up behind me without disregard and I have a witness that agrees Who is at fault?
if you were in reverse, then you would be for not being aware of what was behind you when you started to move.
Report it stolen to the police.
Why is more difficult to push a stalled car from rest than to keep it in motion once it has started to run?
Inertia.When you first start to push the vehicle you need to overcome the inertis of the vehicle and provide it with Kinetic energy.Once the vehicle is moving, i.e has kinetic energy, then to keep a constant speed on a level surface you only need to push to replace the energy lost through frictio...
When a car is moving in reverse backing from a driveway the driver applies the brake in what direction is the car's acceleration?
The car's acceleration is in forward direction.
Why is it more difficult to push a stalled car from rest that to keep it in motion once it has started to run?
It's based on Newton's first law of Motion: a body at rest will stay at rest, until acted upon by an outside force. A vehicle that is stopped is harder to move, because you have to overcome its inclination to remain stationary. Once the vehicle has begun to move, you add your influence to the veh...
Why is it more difficult to push a stalled car from rest to keep it in motion once it has started to run?
Force = mass X acceleration. When you start pushing a stationary 'dead weight' you are making it go faster than it was or accelerating it. Once the car is moving at a steady speed, it is no longer being accelerated. The greater the mass or inertia of an object the more it will resist changes in i...
If you sold a car to carmax and changed your mind can you give them their money back and get your car back?
Very rarely, and if then only on the same day. Usually not, because of the paperwork filed with the local DMV.
Can you submit a claim for accident from three months ago if your truck was in your driveway with no one in it and someone hit it?
It depends on where you live! Each State has its' own insurance statutes, believe it or not! I worked 15 years as a claims adjuster in Florida. In that State, you sould do the following: 1. Report to police! 2. Report to your insurance Company. If you have collision coverage, it will pay for repa...
What could stop your car from upshifting out of first gear and im having a real bad problem with 1 thing to.. i have put 2 new transmisssion in this thing and they all keep leaking out the front...?
For some reason your control computer is not getting a signal from the speed sensor, or their is a problem with the governor on old transmissions.As to the leak, there is an issue with the pump or the install procedure. Either way change repair shops.
Yes ... this is why the front end tends to nosedive when stopping. Some newer cars have achieved a perfected braking system where the total load is shifted equally between the rear and front breaks, resulting in a more comfortable stop.
If a mechanic has a mechanics lien on your car will this prevent the finance company from repossessing your car or prevent you from voluntarily having car repossessed?
No, what will happen is this: the finance company will pay off the mechanics lien (usually) and tack that on your loan balance, it would be considered a repo fee.
Would it be grand theft if you took your car back from the repo lot and what can happen to you if do?
Grand Theft or Grand larceny, either one is bad. Please dont do it. Once the Car is in our care and custody it is NO LONGER YOUR CAR AT ALL, Unless the lien holder says it is and yes it has happened and yes debtors have Been arrested for taking a car back.
What if car A is at a four way light and needs to reverse to back off the white line and hits car B Whos at fault?
If car A is in front of car B, then car A is at fault
The rear of the car will always go in the direction that you turned the wheel if you are in reverse. It's just like driving forward. If you want to go forward and right, turn the wheel to the right. If you are in reverse and want the rear of the car to move to the right, then turn the wheel to th...
The way i remember it is the word OPPISITE if you turn it right (reverse) it will turn left!! If turning wheel left (reverse) it'll go right!! hope i helped
Turn the steering wheel right to turn right in reverse.
If you did not sign anything, yes. If you have signed some papers, depending on what they are, probably not. If you have signed the agreement to purchase, possibly. Ask the selling dealer to let you out of the agreement to purchase.
You first put the car into either neutral or park (this will depend on whether the car is an automatic or stick (manual)), and then you start the car again. That's it! Good luck.
You have a auto car and when you put your car in drive it wont move but if you put it in first gear it will what does this mean?
Well somone correct me if im wrong you need a new tranny. Considering you have to skip to 1st you mise well get a manual.
When you put your car in reverse it does not change into gear for 10 seconds When you drive in gear it is fine?
You need to seek help immediately from a transmission professional. If you continue to drive the car with this problem you may do serious damage to the transmission.
If you stop making your car payment while waiting for your chapter 7 bankruptcy to be discharged how long until your car is taken from you and will you be able to get another car?
It is up to the creditor to file a motion for relief from stay in order to take back the car. Your ability to buy another car will only be limited by your ability to find a willing seller and a willing lender.
While changing your spark plugs one did not back out and was very hard to turn to begin with just got this truck 93 t100 and was wondering if there is any way around replacing the head?
Go to the parts store and get a spark plug thread insert kit. Be sure to match up the right threads to your spark plugs.
If it was in plain sight, it's admissable. Otherwise, it wouldn't be unless the police had either a warrant or could establish probable cause.
If someone left a note claiming that you backed into their car in a parking lot and you don't think you did what should you do?
Arrange for a meeting. Have them prove, just like a tral prosecutor, exactly how, when, and where the accident took place. TAKE PHOTOS Also, look at your car, look at their car. Compare color, (paint usually scratches off on offending vehicles when they hit parked cars), damage description, etc. ...
