It sounds like what happened to my '96 Mazda 626, and if that's the case, your tranny is going. With mine, reverse started slipping a bit, then wouldn't work at all, then first went and at that point I just replaced the whole thing.
Low/reverse is probably fried. you could try some B&M trick shift in the trans to help make the clutches grab. flushing the trans made it worse. might i suggest getting rid of the car soon cause your trans is done. best way i can put it.
thats why i am thinking about just putting another transmission in it
does anyone know what they run for? i have checked a local yard and the wanted $125 for a used out of 99 le with 87,000miles
true there is absolutely to guarantee that it has 87,000 limes eitherThat sounds pretty good, but you don't know if the 87,000 miles were hard or easy.
