last 3 or 4 days i've been having a serious problem with my vitz 2002 . in the morning when i start the car and try to put on reverse to backup ,, literally nothing happens as if its in N or P . this is really strange but more importantly its serious too , its CNG but nothing happens even if i convert it to petrol , D works fine though.
someting wrong with the tranny , keep in mind that last 3-4 days its lil much cooler that before in khi. i really appreciate if someone can help me or face similar situation with his vitz ,coz its appears to me that Reverese gear is not engaging or something , after driving some 2, 3 km , ther reverse starts to work , please brothers help me or name a good mechanic in karachi , regards
Check the gear oil and change it if u havent. its a common problem with imported vehicles that there gear oil is so bad, its doesnt look like oil anymore, and it can screw the gear box (i hope it hasnt happnd for u yet).
thanks for ur reply Juneyd ,
i've checked the oil , it looks clean but i will change it today anyway , any recommendations for the oil , as far as i know it should be dexron II , i hope changing oil should solve the problem
Change your ATF immediateley with TypeIV, and check th eextended life coolant if its milage more than 35000 KM. cause antifreeze also circulates and cool the transmission and maintains its temperature.
where can i get type T-IV, at toyota dealships they have TOYOTA ATF D-II. its s round black metal can 1 ltr capacity , thats all they have , these ignorant ppl dont have any Type T-IV atf . they said thats all they have and they always replace it with Toyota ATF D-II.
do you know any place where i can get Type T-IV atf
btw my car has 54000 km on the clock , i am not sure if its the right milage or tampred
