Damaged or displaced

Checkball in Piston


Driven Sprocket Support

Porosity or broken
Feed holes blocked

Driven Sprocket Support Bolts

Loose, not in grooves, mislocated

Driven Sprocket Support Seals


Fluid Pressure

Too low

Lo/Reverse Anchor Pin

Anchor pin broken or not positioned

Reaction Carrier Shell

Missing, teeth damaged

Reverse Band

Broken, worn not anchored

Reverse Band Apply Pin

Too short or binding in case

Reverse Clutch Fiber Plates

Splines or friction material worn

Reverse Clutch Housing


Reverse Clutch Piston

Binding in case

Reverse Clutch Piston Seals

Leaking, damaged or worn

Reverse Clutch Spring Assembly


Reverse Clutch Steel Plates

So basicly, the transmission will need to be removed and torn down for inspection to verify the exact cause.
