Will it shift and move in forward gears just not reverse?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
no it will not move at all.
Expert:  Tech413 replied 8 years ago.

Sounds to me that you need a clutch. Even the best of drivers will burn up their clutch at 120k. You must meet that criteria. If you shift your trans into any gear and is does not move, chances are that you are in need of a clutch.
