Im going to change the oil the transmission oil i change when i replace the solenoid and sensor late week i have a scan tool a regular one or is there one for desiel i need to use
Thanks for the reply!!I would first have the codes scanned and there is no special tool for the Diesel. I would have it scanned first because if you have a bad sensor you can change it while you have the pan off.If you get the codes post them
Here so I can explain what is happening and how to repair it.Talk soon,
Brad

I need to know if my transmission is bad

Thanks for the reply and I have your question opened back up..

Ok the codes you have are not trans codes... If it won't go into reverse you will need to check your rear band because reverse is front clutches and rear band.. If you drop the pan and see excessive metal I would have it rebuilt or if you see the rear band has failed...

Ask Your Own Transmissions Question

To be honest if you lost reverse then changing the sensors in the valvebody will not correct the issues.. if it didn't start in 1st or wouldn't change into 2nd then it's likely a sensor issue but with no reverse there is a good chance you will need to have it rebuilt as I suspect you have quite a few miles on the transmission..

Let me know,

Brad

Can a transmission band be fix without removing the transmission

I'm sorry the front pump will need to come out to replace the front band so yes the transmission will need to come out..
