Post 98 camaro wont drive in reverse
ran into a strange issue last night.
my camaro will shift into reverse but it wont drive. what i mean is, it wants to go back but its like something is holding it in place. almost like im brake torquing in reverse. the forward gears are fine.
any ideas on what it could be?
i know it probably sounds weird

Need more info, have you tried giving it any gas to back up? Could be a hung caliper. Could be a trans issue also. Is it a standard or auto?

That still doesn't make sense on it's own. Are the pads symmetrical between the left and right wheels or is one side really worn out and not the other? Def leaning toward a hung caliper.
