96 Camry LE reverse no longer works

Asked by Jun 09, 2017 at 09:24 PM about the 1996 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My REVERSE no longer works.  It will rev as if it is
in park and it will not budge. Also, the car will
actually drive if it's shifted in NEUTRAL. It drives
just fine at all speeds when in DRIVE. Is it just a
matter of time before the transmission kicks the
can? Is it salvageable? Is it worth saving?

What Engine...mileage? Check the quality and quantity of Trans fluid. Refer to your owners manual for procedure. If fluid level is OK...and....the odor of the fluid smells burnt.....you most likely have a trans failure. A good Trans Shop can conduct a series of pressure tests to verify this diagnosis.
