SOURCE: 1999 F250 only goes in reverse, no forward gears.

I believe that reverse is operated by a brake band. So it seems to be stuck. It is operated by a piston, and the seal could have swelled and caused too much friction. But you could loosen up the adjustor so that it is disengaged, in order to get forward gears again. Perhaps you can force the piston to retract as well, once you drop the pan again.

SOURCE: 1997 Chevy 1500 P/U 4x4 small V8. Transmission shifting issue.

you may be confusing the torque converter clutch engagement with o.d. this trans has a problem with the T.C.C. regulator valve wearing out the valve body bore. this will cause the converter clutch to engage only sometimes or not at all. this will set a P1870 code in the control module. when this code is stored in the controller, ( check engine light may or may not be on), it increases the pressure in the transmission causing the 1-2 shift to be harsh. ask a local tranny shop to scan the vehicle ( most will do this for free) if this is the problem they can either fix your valve body (sonnax parts) or replace it with an upgraded valve body. hope this helps

Is it hard to drop my gas tank on my 1991 chevy caprice wagon?


It is really dirty,awkward,and the retaining strap bolts will be rusted a little or badly and have to be drilled or cut off. Not a nice job,until it is out., then it is interesting.

Transmission fluid leak, may be slipping a gear in overdrive


OK if its the pan gasket, it wouldn't hurt to change it. probably due for a change anyhow. It may or may not help with the OD problem but fresh oil is a plus.

Try servicing the tranny fluid if not changing the fluid, if the problem has existed too long it may be time for a new tranny.

Transmission is slipping on 1992 Chevrolet Caprice Classic


Dude.. You need to adjust the TV cable or it is broken. It runs from the throttle to the transmission. It sounds like it is starting off in the wrong gear. All of this is due to that cable man! Have it checked out before it burns the trans out! Also; make sure it is full on fluid, and DO NOT over fill it. After you have driven it for a while, stop on level ground, put it in park, and check the dipstick. check it many times, and go by the low side of the stick. It may read up there on one side but low on the other, and if this is the case it is low. The fluid should show full on both sides of the stick. When changing the filter, there is a grommet type seal that goes up in the valve body, and they are very hard to change without the proper tool to do it with. A common mistake is some people think the old one is out and put the other one in, and have two in it. This will cause all kinds of problems. If that seal gets damaged it will **** air and cause the trans to give problems. Good Luck!
