hELLO THERE, hOW IS 1ST GEAR WHEN TAKING OFF, DOES IT SLIP ALSO?
Sorry, I had the caps lock on................
I will need to know if it slips in 1st gear when taking off, this makes a difference on how we determine whats going on. Meanwhile, also. could you tell me what kind of condition the trans fluid is in - does it smell burnt (like old coffee grounds), does it look dark colored and is it full? Once I get that information from you we can determine what the cause is. I will wait for your reply and we will continue. Thanks...................Pete
no first gear doesnt slip and the transmission oil is full and good
Ok, then you have something wrong in the valve body or in the reverse clutch area. It would not be electrical, because it would affect the whole trans and not just reverse. This was a common problem on this transmission. The only real fix for cost efficency is to replace it with a used one.
can i open the transmission and fix it ?
If you are familiar with overhauling transmissions, yes. If you have never opened one up, I suggest not to, but it would be a learning experience for you.
There are books that will tell you step by step available.
If you are interested.
I do not know if you are a novice or a professional, so pardon me, I do not want to offend you.
is it easy to take this transmission off or do i have to take the engine off aswel
is it easy to buy parts for this transmission?
This transmission requires to be hanging in mid air while you remove the trans, thus an engine support fixture must be obtained, you will be dropping out the whole subframe - it gets kind of messy.
Parts are available at the dealer, but kits are also available at most all aftermarket parts stores, NAPA, etc.
I'm going to give you the removal procedure so you have an idea what is entailed.
Okay tomorrow im gonna take the transmission off to open and repair it
