Transmission hesitates going into reverse only!

I have a 1991 ford explorer w/4.0 v6 it runs fine and the gears all shift fine going forward, but when i put it into reverse it always hesitates for about a second then goes into gear. What could be causing that?

Also Replace Valve Body Gasket. They do blue out which will cause this hesitating. If doing it yourself check 11 auto on You Tube. Good luck

    I don't think there's a Solenoid Pack on the A4LD. It's a straight mechanical auto. Also, I have no idea how a valve body gasket could turn Blue. The MERCON Trans Fluid is Red, If my brain has not died.

With 1991 f-150 truck running the auomatic transmission will shift into reverse but notthing else


Rule out the easy stuff first...
Does it have the correct type and amount of fluid in the transmission? There should be a dipstick you can check.
After that, the problem could be with the linkage at the shifter, or the linkage at the transmission, or internal to the unit.

Shift problems


No reverse in just about any automatic transmission is going to be a mechanical failure inside the trans.This is presuming all the forward gears are ok.I have seen on many occassions where the vehicle has no reverse and no 3rd gear and that makes sense,but is still a mechanical failure,as the direct clutches (3rd gear) are applied in reverse as well as 3rd gear,on most automatics.

Car won't go in reverse


If the vehcile is V6,then the trans model is the A540E,and if it is the 4 cylinder engine,the trans model is an A140E.Both are 4 speed overdrive transmissions,and sorry to report that on just abot every automatic trans on the road,reverse gear failure is almost always a mechanical problem inside the transmission because there are no shift solenoids involved with reverse as with forward gears.And you did say the forward gears were fine.Good luck.
