Default No Reverse

Okay guys....I have a problem. For some reason my truck won't go into reverse and I dont know why. I just replaced the tranny myself about a month ago and its been working perfectly since then, but today I tried to back out of a parking space and couldnt. I could feel it click into reverse but when i hit the gas it just revved the engine. All the other gears work just fine, except reverse. Do you guys have any ideas?

MODERATOR? Can we get a BuMp? Or did he? Im looking for some answers to this same problems. TROY a newbie, posted this 6 mos ago in May. I hope we were able to help him & he will return. Mine is on an '01 3.9 w/s with 91k on her. Reverse acts just like neutral. No indication it is attempting to engage into a gear. (reverse) Fluid is at proper level, looks & smells very/suspitiously good.

If you have no reverse then you are going to have to take the transmission out and rebuild it again, you probably have a direct clutch problem most likely. But just to rule out a few things. Do the fallowing for me and tell me the results.

Put the vehicle in MANUAL 1ST gear and tell me if the vehicle moves when you press the pedal?

If the vehicle moves then it's not a reverse band or low/reverse servo issue.

If the vehicle doesn't move then try checking the band's adjustment and check the low/reverse servo.

Next thing to do is to check that low/reverse servo pressure. The pressure should be around 140-175PSI minimum with a absolute maximum of 280PSI. This check port is located on the passanger side of the transmission closest to the OD Unit.

If everything checks out and you still have no reverse then remove the OD unit and rebuild it again, BE SURE TO TAKE THE OD PISTON SPACER SHIM MEASUREMENT AND THE SPACER FOR THE INTERMEDIATE SHAFT.

If you need help just ask me and I am more then happy to assist.

My reply to Troy is applicable to your issue as well. Just so you know with ATF+4 you cannot judge a fluid change based on the color or the oder. Only with the older fluids are you able to. If you tow change fluid every 12K miles and do a flush at 50K miles, if you don't tow often then change fluid every 50K miles with a flush at 100K miles. Have the valve body rebuilt at 150K to 250K miles in both cases.
