Can't back up an incline
 
Need help, please. My 1996 Ram with auto transmission doesn't want to back up my inclined driveway. Takes a lot of acceleration to get up it in reverse. Seems to back up fine on level surface. Have looked at back brakes and they don't seem to be the problem.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks.

Fluid/filter/ band adjustment. If it hasn't been servised in a while you could have a lotta slack in that low/reverse band.

Thanks for the reply. As I don't know much about transmissions, is that band adjustment an internal adjustment?

Front band is externally adjusted, but the Rear band is internally adjusted, so you have to drop the pan. Good excuse to change fluid and filter. Here's a good reference page:

That's a great link. I'll give it a try and see what happens.
