Well the title explains it all, my friend thinks it is funny when he puts the car in Neutral while i am driving, well he went one gear too far... Wheels locked up, Skidded to a stop, and the car stalled.... Took a while to start back up, and my abs light came on that day, but it has gone off since then... is there anything i need to do or look out for, besides me kicking the living SH** outta him he said he would pay for epairs just in case....

Hope the rear is ok. That's how my buddy blew the rear out in his F-150.

Personally I'd change the trans fluid and pull the rear diff cover off and check to see if any gears or teeth are damaged. Just my .02 though.

I'd keep an eye on that trans. I would think that the clutch packs took quite a hit when this happened. It may not be eveident right away and show up a month from now when it starts slipping. Hope your friend has some $$ laying around to have a new trans built if that's the case.

Well since your friend is footing the bill, start with a complete trans fluid and filter change and make sure they drain the converter. Tell the shop what happened and ask them to look real good through the fluid and make sure there aren't any metal shavings floating around in the trans. If there are, you will probably need a new trans. Also have them pull the diff cover off and check the backlash of the diff and look at the gears to make sure nothing got screwed up in there. Probably replace the U-joints in the driveshaft just to be safe, or at least check the play in them. If you have a stock driveshaft, look at the part where the 2 halves are crimped together and make sure that doesn't look like it twisted or came apart at all. Also check the CV shaft for excessive play, and check both rear hub bearings. Last but not least, have them hook up a scan tool and go through engine, trans, and ABS systems to make sure there aren't any codes in the system. Just because you don't see a light on doesn't mean there isn't something wrong. Most likely your car will be alright, but have them check everything on this list because if they don't, and a few months from now you start getting a vibration or a noise, you don't want your friend to say that it isn't his fault and refuse to pay for it and then you'll be stuck with say a $600 bill to rebuild the differential for his stupidity, see what I mean? Good luck. Hopefully everything will be alright. If not, at least you'll have your own personal servent until he pays for what he broke.

R---not for "RACE"

I really hate to hear that these trannys will actually engage reverse when put into "R" while at road speed. C6's would not engage reverse while moving---at least mine wouldnt, that I know for a fact. When I was younger and even more foolish, a few friends + Budweiser tried it (accidently) in my 460CJ w/C6. Hope your friend wasnt from the annheiser-busch house :D

i had a 78 cutlass that i used reverse as a brake in the winter because it was a beater and the guy who sold it to me crimped the rear brake lines to do burn outs, also the front tires we shot. that car was a beast took at least 10 or more reverse drops at 30+ it through reverse out and it still went forward. i knock my buddy's car out of gear at red lights but never at speed, just touch his lever and it goes to reverse his you have to press the button which i don't do. i know i'am a but head but he laughs about it

I accidentally did that to my 89. All it did was make a clicking sound, I didnt do it again, but of course it was the AOD

these cars have a reverse lockout function that will not allow you to put into R or P either from N or D without depressing the brake first. Same reason why you cannot shift out of P without depressing the brake.. they call that a Neutral safety switch :)

i can move from any forward drive gear or neutral without touching the brakes, and you can move from reverse TO neutral w/o braking.. but it shouldn't go the other way
