Just have someone look at it. like aamco or someone that does a free diagnostic. the tranny will probably have to be rebuilt.

I lost reverse on my 1994 chevy suburban 454, but forward gears work....help?


You start buy pulling the unit out & having it
rebuilt

There is no other fix, but to completely strip your
trans & go thru it.

If the truck is not on the second trans in 18 years,
I would be surprised

Be thankfully you don't have a transaxle,they never
make 100,000 miles & in some case only a few years.

Only reverse works. No foward gears.


No forward movement in OD or D, but L2, L1 and R work: Forward sprag is broken. R&R. Try not to run or drive the car or further damage could result.

Do you have manual 1st? If so, can you shift through the gears...i.e. manual 1st to manual 2nd then 'D' then 'OD'??? Only 1st and 2nd gears use the forward sprag unless the LO/Rev clutch is engaged...i.e. 1st and 2nd if in "drive". If you can shift threw the gears manually then, yes, your forward sprag broke.

If no manual 1st then your sprag is not what broke. Sounds like you blew up the rear planet. If you pull the pan and find chunks of iron and steel, then that is probably what happened. If you have reverse then it is not the pump. If the pump was bad you would have no line pressure and it would slip in rev. or no rev. Not the beef sun shell either because you have rev., a broken sun shell would cause no 2nd, 4th and rev. gears. Either way the trans needs to come out and torn down and it will be easily found what went. Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.
