My van won't shift gears properly.Mechanic did not think it was the transmission but gear slippage. Bought some Lucas to put in it but it didn't help.

well the gears are within the transmission,even if it is rear wheel drive (differential will not cause slippage) shifting issues can u describe in more detail-harsh engagment when cold? engine revs for a while (delayed engagment) before vehicle moves forward or upshifts. what colour does the fluid look like? does it smell burnt? when was the last time the trans was serviced? is the level correct? is the correct fluid being used for top up?is there any transmission dtc's or is the check engine light on? slipage occurs when the clutch packs are worn, glazed or contaminated-there is also the possiblity of lack of adequate hydraulic pressure which is generated from the front pump, there could also be an issue with the
valve body and or shift solenoids. so he could be correct with the gears being ok as there are more dynamics to the tranmission operation, pending of the transmissions path of power-planetary gear set it could be an intermidiate band not fully holding the forward drum....pending on path of power. anyways a
simple pressure test of main line pressure will help in determining tranmission overall condition cause if you have one internal fault trans requires removal and at that point it'll have to come apart at that point you may as well be doing a complete rebuild.

All of a sudden wont go forward or rev .

Hello, The first thing to check is the transmission fluid level. When you check the fluid does it have a burnt smell? If so, you probably have an internal failure. Have you had the transmission serviced? Your trans filter may be stopped up.
I hope this helps.
