    is it possible to check that pressure at home? is there a service port or would you have to tie into a cooling line? What is the pressure range? measured at idle in park?

Sounds like a pump issue, check line pressure. If it does have a bad trans pump it can be changed with out removing the trans. But also check the fluid level if you haven't already.

    There is a service port, I'll have to look up the location. I think it is right on the pump, which is right behind the wheel well cover on the driver's side. You can do this at home, but you will need a transmission pressure tester to do this. It is just like an engine oil pressure tester but the gauge goes to 300 psi. So if you know someone that has one, borrow it. Or maybe you can rent one from a transmission shop. You can buy one if you want to spend the money. I bought mine from Mac Tools, I think it cost about 150 dollars. But it is a transmission and engine oil pressure test kit. It comes with a 300 psi gauge for transmissions and 80 psi gauge for engine oil.

I bought a 92 Chev 2500 4X4 from a guy just recently. He said the tranny wont go into gear. I found the transfer case was in neutral. So i put it in gear and away it goes. But reverse seamed sluggish. ...


If your transmission is a 700r4 (4l60) you have a reverse band that engages when you want to go in reverse. since it drives forward your low reverse clutch and your fwd clutch are working. This leaves the band which was probably slipping now is not engaging.

Car goes into reverce but does not engage completely works fine in forward, when in reverce it seems lik it wants to ingage but does not. it makes a chattering sound and feeling. what electric part puts...


Hello. As you know, the transmission is one of the more sophisticated components in any auto. It takes the most transmission pressure to engage reverse, third, and fourth gear in an auto tranny. In an auto tranny, the shifter is connected to a linkage that manually shifts between the different gears in the transmission. When you shift into reverse, all transmission pressure is concentrated to engage reverse. When you shift to drive the transmission will operate normally, building pressure until it can shift into the next gear. With third, second, or first gear selected it will lock out all higher gears (Unless the TCU detects overrevving of the engine, in which case it will override gear selection and upshift to avoid engine damage). All the TCU does in a modern auto tranny is control shift points. Years and years ago, shifting was controlled by a spring attached to the gas pedal. When the gas pedal was depressed, the spring would expand. As tranny pressure grew, the spring would become compressed until it was fully compressed, engaging the next gear. The harder you stepped on the gas, the longer you went until the tranny shifted. In modern transmissions the TCU dictates shift points, and not much else. The TCU will also control when the torque converter will lock, but that's where it's duties end. The problem with engaging reverse is either a linkage issue, or a problem with the pump not building enough pressure to fully engage reverse.

Try putting the shifter in reverse, holding the brakes firmly, and giving the car gas. If the car reaches a higher RPM and suddenly slams into reverse it is the pump. The pump will only build enough pressure to engage reverse with higher RPM's. If the pump is severly damaged it won't engage at all, but if this is the case it probably won't engage third or fourth gear either at that point. If the problem is with the linkage, reverse just won't engage whatsoever, despite RPM's. I'd say start with the shift linkage. If it's bent or misadjusted it could cause reverse to not be fully engaged. The TCU doesn't control reverse at all, since there are no shift points and no need for the torque converter to lock.

Auto tranny slipping after shifting out of second


Firstly is it slow for reverse, reverse clutch also engages in 3rd gear however reverse has a boosted circuit (more psi) therefore will engage rev but not 3rd but it is a little slow for reverse.
They do have a tendancy to pop a ball out of the High and reverse clutch giving this symptom.

AUDI A4 AUTOMATIC SLOW TO ENGAGE FORWARD GEARS ,REVERSE ENGAGES INSTANTLEY BUT TO MOVE FORWARD I NOW SELECT DRIVE FOR AROUND THREE MINUTES THEN MOVE OFF SLOWLEY,THEN ALL GOES WELL


Not overly familiar with Audis but it sounds like either a.) you have an electronic tranny that has a serious bug or b.) there's a problem in the computer of the car itself. What is sounds like is the car is taking a long time to "understand" that you're telling it to move forward. How new is the car? When you push on the gas before the three minutes, what happens?
