2010 Pontiac g3 manual 5 spd. Transmission does not shift into reverse. When I put stick into reverse gear, it’s another forward gear. No reverse. Cannot find reverse in any other area of shifts. Just checking if there is something I can check or adjust before I change the tranny. Thank you. Thank you very much.

Change the tranny??? I would sure check that the shift arms on the trans are moving to the proper detented positions. There are probably cables, with plastic bushings that can break, in the linkage from the cabin shift lever to the trans.

If the trans arms are going to the detented positions, then that cover with the arms can be removed to inspect inside.

Hey never mind. I just found the little thing on the stick that has to be lifted to shift to reverse!
