1979 Trans Am

My 1979 Pontiac Trans Am will not go into reverse. It is a 4 speed manual tranny.

Did it go in before?

Does it refuse to go in at all, or does it grind? If it grinds, your clutch may be in need of adjustment. If it's not completely disengaging when you push the pedal down, the gears will not stop spinning, and it will grind. It might also make it hard to downshift in the forward gears, and can lead to synchronizer damage.

Will the shifter even go to the left side of the gate? I don't know what kind of reverse lockout your shifter has, but my '72 Nova has a detent ball down inside the shifter mechanism that doesn't respond well to smooth pressure. It works better if I slap the stick to the left from the right side of the gate.
