Transmission only has reverse, no drive

  1. First thing to do would be to check the transmission fluid level. Top off if needed. None on stick is BAD. The reading on the stick between the lines is equal to 1/2 quart. Use Mercon transmission fluid.

    Determine if the transmission fluid is burnt. Use a white paper towel and wipe the dipstick on it. The fluid should be pinkish/red. If the fluid looks dark and carries a burnt smell, you are looking at burnt internal clutches and in need of a rebuild. The largest cause of a burnt transmission is heat.
