Sounds like the trany shop didn't rebuild the transmission like they were. Take the truck back to the shop and have them rebuild it at their cost, if they did it not to long ago.

How do I get my two speed powerglide stuck out of reverse in my 68 El Camino.

Unless the problem is in the linkage for the shifter you will need to tear down the transmission to find the problem.

Car do not go into reverse

Tranny loses reverse usually you lose drive. You need a new tranny or rebuilt one

I have a 1966 Ford Falcon with a C4 transmission. The trans was completely rebuilt and has a Cheetah man/auto valve body. Lately the trans has been shifting eradict under normal driving conditions to the...

I would begin by replacing the filter if its not new, 2 possibility of issue, faulty shifting module or defective transmission rebuilt. just because it has been rebuilt does not mean the individual work on it did a good job. the less cost effective way is to locate used modulator from ebay or junk yard, if that does not rectified the issue than more likely it will be the tranny. the bad part is that I dont know of a company offer a bench test for the tranny modulator.

My 2006 ford freestar won't go in reverse and kicks when in drive and there was a funny smell, all the fluids are good, could it be the tranny?

it is the tranny. once reverse goes out there are seals in your tranny that are shot so even though u have full fluid the tranny cant push the fluid in the right places. it needs to be rebuilt or replaced.

TH 350 transmission question

Thought you had an old "slip & slide powerglide" ! I like the way they originally cursed them, then all the racers wanted them all of a sudden. Anyway, if you have the TH350, which your obviously cruising and shifting manually, just go with gear selection that sounds good to you, RPM wise. I never look at a tachometer, all by ear. The TH 350 are pretty strong too. Then of course there's always a shift kit that will make it bang into next gear & chirp tires for cruising too.

No reverse but all gear going forward

Just to let you know that I just got my care back from the tranny shop. I had not had a problem at all and just the other night after picking up my son , got in my car and it hesitated to go in reverse but it and it bucked real hard twice. Did a little of the same ..but anyway...the tranny place has to replace the lock nut on the main shaft. Remove side cover of transmission, replace self loking nut on main shaft ..nut came lose ...$320.00 So I was very happy I didn't have to have a valve job, sylenoids replaced or rebuilt tranny.
