[quote=DiabloGTS]mine does the same thing.
they all do the same thing.
It has to do with the design on the transmission, and the location of the reverse gear. But, I'm sure you knew that.
Don't like it, tough.
mine does it and my dad said to just depress the clutch and repress it, then try it again and it'll go.
yes, because the car needs to shift into neutral, and reengage the clutch to grab the reverse gear.
It's not hard, and it's not broken.
Ok, even though I stated that I shifted into neutral and reverse multiple times and still had the same problem, but has always happened when the car is cold in cold weather. Oops, when I said I shifted into neutral I forgot to say that I let go of the clutch and then engaged it again. I don't know if I was supposed to count to three until I tried again or say some sort of magical word, but I did it all pretty fast because I was pissed off.
if it's REALLY cold outside, the tranny oil isn't viscous enough and will cause rough/impossible shifting.
Just shift into neutral, release the clutch, wait a second, shift into reverse.
You have an 00 with the old style shift gates? [/quote]Yeah, I do, and I was looking for that answer in the first place instead of the obvious answer that I wasn't disengaging the clutch when shifting back to neutral and then trying again, because I know that's required.
Anyways, it's in the teens here and sometimes I have to go outside and move my car from one spot to another because I work in the city and got kicked out of our building garage for calling the stupid bitch that has a Harvard degree and decides to take tickets instead a "fucking bitch", but that's besides the point. Also, winds are really strong especially in the city between the high rises so the car cools a lot faster than it usually does. I also thought that I might need to change my tranny oil because the dumb ass that had the car before me never took it into consideration. Now I know that it could be due to the fact that it's really cold outside and that my tranny oil probably looks like afro sheen or something. Thanks.
