Hello, is the transmission full of fluid and does it look clean or look black or smell burnt? Reverse is the only issue, once its in reverse it works fine? How many miles are on the transmission?

Reverse requires most pressure. When u out in drive fluid circulates and then when u put it back in reverse it has just enoughpressure to engage. The transmission will fail completely soon...chanhi g fluid filter probably won't help...thats honest truth...
