Help!!! No reverse!!

Last week i was forced off the road by another driver and hit the ditch. Now i cannot get my car to shift into reverse. Its almost like something is blocking it from getting into reverse. i didnt want to try and force it into gear. any info someone could give me would be helpful. thanks.

Re: Help!!! No reverse!!

All I can say is check the shift cables, where they attach to the transmission, when you went off the road something might have caught one of the cables and ripped it off or bent it. then if you still cant find anything that looks weird or bent or broken, disconnect them from the tranny and see if you can move the levers on the transmission by hand, if you can't- something is wrong inside the transmission. If you can move them- I would remove the center console and check the shift linkage under the shifter boot. Make sure nothing is cracked or broken and make sure both cables are properly secured. You should find the problem.

Re: Help!!! No reverse!!

Mine done this same thing after a long road trip, after about 3000 miles it got really hard to get into reverse, then it wouldn't go at all. I moved it from first to reverse and jiggled it and forced it and it finally went right in. then i missed a shift a few weeks later and lost reverse again.
How I fixed it and haven't had a problem since...
I was changing the clutch, while the trans was out, by hand i turned the input shaft backwards a hair or too, and tried to put it in reverse, moving the lever on the trans from first to reverse. I repeated this until it went in, just took about 5 minutes, after i got it into reverse i continued until it got easier and easier to put in gear. then upon reinstallation i put lucas transmission fix in the transmission. its smooth, hasn't gave me a problem since, that was last year.
