lack of power in reverse...

last nite i was going in reverse up a fairly steep street and my cars engine made alot of noise and barely had enuff power to get me up the hill. Anyone else experience this? Is it a sign of an impending problem?

Sure it wasn't just the gears in the tranny making noise.

Re: lack of power in reverse...

Are you having the problem in your forward gears? Sounds like you possibly have bad gas or an obstruction with your fuel delivery.
