90 lumina euro 3.1 auto trannie w/OD. 131000kms (81000mi).
Recently bought this car, did the government safety (in manitoba canada).
Drove around for the day. Always a little sticky going into reverse, like
I'd I have to hunt for it on the shift selector. Never a big deal
Suddenly in the walmart parking lot, couldn't get it into reverse. Its
like its engaged, engine won't go over 2000RPMs, but it won't move.
If I put in drive from Reverse, it sometimes won't move in drive either.
But once in drive, it is perfectly normal, and shifts exactly the way its
supposed to. I drove at 120km/h on the way home with no problems
whatsoever. Got home, tried reverse again, and no go.
Any ideas? Lots of suggestions to check for loose harnesses and plugs
underneath. (I did reverse through a rather large snow drift in reverse
that morning, maybe something came loose?)
Anything I should be looking into more seriously?
