The clutch plate apply seals have hardened and are not sealing to well. Other than a rebuild to fix, you might try some type of additive or seal conditioner to it along with a fluid and filter change.

I have a 98 Tacoma 2wd automatic w/2.4 truck runs excellent,shifts perfect and does not slip any going forward,but if I park and have to back out it takes a second to engage reverse but it will engage


You do have a problem then. Slow reverse engagement can be the sign of a failing transmission. Use reverse as little as possible under as light a load as possible. If you have never changed the fluid and filter in the transmission do that as well, it may help. Also verify the fluid level is correct hot fluid check.

For car not changing gears and not shifting out of park mode ,it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.

Well tanny fluid is dirty and it shifts into low gear and jerks alittle when driving


Service the transmission, replace the transmission fluid and filter, and have them check the transmission fluid line pressure. Base pressure at idle in P,N,OD should be around 70psi and around 140psi in R. Max line pressure should be at least 190psi at WOT in 1st or 2nd, 225psi is optimum. If base pressure is low, trans or pump is worn out. If max pressure is low, check EPC solenoid. If reverse is slow to engage, and line pressure does not come up to at least 130psi in reverse, replace the boost valve with a Transgo 0.490" or 0.500" boost valve (easy fix in pan). the boost valve is only an extra $45.00 part and should be replaced every second transmission service. Service is every 60,000 miles. Good luck and this should help address you transmission issues. At worst the EPC valve is sticking due to the dirty fluid and may need to be replaced too which is an easy fix when the transmission is serviced.

Reverse was slow to engage for the last couple of weeks and today it's totally gone, all forward gears are working fine. 93 Silverado with only 250k


Did you check the transmission fluid level? I had one that did this and all I did to "repair" it was add fluid. If this fails to help, it sounds like transmission repair time to me.

It's possible a new filter and fluid may take care of this,check your transmission fluid for color,it should be clear and ruby red with now burnt smell.If its a reddish brown and cloudy definitely time for a transmission filter/fluid service.
