Need help. This morning I was backing up down my driveway and heard a ping sound coming from my transmission. I then noticed I had no reverse. Now the tranny has all forward gears but it will not click into reverse. Does anyone know what this could be. I think the reverse syncro assembly is broken. Can any one help?

When you jacked it up and inspected all the linkage; what did you find?

Morning?

Is your reverse lockout lifting? I recently had same symptom, my reverse lockout lock bolt had loosened up and the rod pulled out of the lockout mechanism. 

I made a video to show it. Easy fix. Hope it works for you.

My Corvette as a Hurst shifter without a lift lockout. It wouldn't shift in to reverse because the electronic lockout was stuck with the solenoid pin in the out position making the shifter not able to move to the right gate where the reverse / 6 gear gate was. It's all fixed now.

But... I have a new problem. The car shuts down while i'm driving! I have to wait a few minutes before it will start again!

Any help would be greatful!
