Have Transmission Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Will the van start to back up and then make a grinding noise and then stop moving?
Does it drive well forward?
What size engine do you have in your van?
There are only a couple of things that can keep you from having revers with this transmission. With you having a grinding noise, I would have to say that the planetary gears are going to be where your problem is. I hate to say it but the transmission will need to be rebuilt to solve this problem.
