Question about 1983 Chevrolet K1500
I have a 1983 Scottsdale Chevy truck. Recently, I noticed that when I put the truck in reverse, it seems it does not want to go. It will, but it seems it has a problem grabbing the gears, or something. It also makes a sound like the gears are trying to grab, I don't know. I had the pan dropped on the transmission last week, and the mechanic found two silver teeth looking pieces, made out of alluminum. Would this be part of the problem? I do not have any problems whatsoever in drive, or on the road, it's just when I put it in reverse. I would greatly appreciate any assistance with this. Thank you very much!!
Hi! There's a broken part of the transmisson caseing internally that is restricting the proper synchronizing of the reverse gear.
The gear of the transmission is made out of steel not aluminum .So yes! that broken part is the problem.
