Hello. Your engine might be burning transmission fluid when shifted into reverse. If bands were out of adjustment, it just wouldn't move...or very slowly.

SOURCE: Transmission wont shift into reverse

By the grayish color, fluid being thick, and metal shavings, the clutches are pretty much worn out. It's time to either rebuilding your transmission or just installing a good used one. The fluid normally should be a reddish color. The gray is from the actual clutch material going away.

SOURCE: Jeep erradic in shifting

I would look into replacing the VSS which is the vehicle speed sensor, it is the input that tells the transmission when to go into overdrive and the torque converter to lock up, also make sure the connector is clean and tight to the sensor, this part is located on the side of the trans where the speedo cable would go.

SOURCE: 94 Jeep Wrangler intermittently stalls when put in reverse, drive

Take the air inlet hose off where it enters the throttle body and take a look at the throttle plates. It is likely that they’re dirty and have a build-up of carbon deposits. That is the most common cause for stalling that we see in the shop for your vehicle. Sometimes all it takes is a good cleaning to cure the stalling problem. There is an idle speed setting on your Jeep, but to check and/or perform this service step requires the use of a computer scan tool for your vehicle. If the cleaning doesn’t help ask a repair facility to check and reset, if needed, the minimum idle speed on your Jeep.


Thnx.

SOURCE: 2004 Jeep Wrangler - Clunking Noise when shifting out of Park

It could be lash in the differential which is normal, but it could also be a loose u-joint in the driveshaft. Check the rear driveshaft u-joints.

SOURCE: Automatic transmission band adjustment

Don't have specs on band but the rule is that it should be close enough to the drum to engage without slamming, and loose enough to permit drum to turn without band dragging on it. Biggest problem I've seen people have when adjusting is that adjustment tightens down while turning lock nut. To avoid this, I usually adjust a bit looser than final adjustment so it tightens to correct position instead of becoming too tight. Don't drive 'till you have it right or you will burn band surface. When engaged in reverse, band should be applied and cannot drag. If you adjusted another band, check that one for improper adjustment.

if all forward gears work properly and engauge in the correct position then your going to have the reverse band adjusted in the trans or rebuilt if your lucky and have lower milage the adjustment works alot of times i do suggest you have it done at a tranny shop as to not over adjust and they can also do a pressure test at the same time

Wont go in reverse how to adjust band for reverse


what makes you think there are bands. ?
did you look in the FSM>
did you post exact transmission in your car , ?
here is a free look 1993 chickodee.
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

32RH (has bands) page 96 and 97 (band adj)
or
AW-4 no bands. uses solenoid clutch packs. electric.
see them both and all tests and settings.
is yours a TCM shifted ? tranny, yes then why not scan it.
or the flash code procedure. page 174


the TCM cars will flash OD lamp or drive lamps or something
to tell you its got error codes.
get them.

best of best. aw-4
(see the manual mode test. many cars have this, not just jeeps)
may TCM tranny cars, (RTM read the FSM and learn this)

http://mikestrawbridge.com/blog/2011/09/aw4-troubleshooting/

hint 2:
make sure the tranny ground stap is not broken.
if it is, it will never ever shift right or reliably
true for just about any TCM car.
see one guy last week bought new tranny ,and never used
a voltmeter on the solinoids. had 12v casing.. a shame.

I'd venture to say your linkage is out of adjustment - don't mess with the bands if the transmission worked before. Move the shift lever all the way to the lowest gear detent (farthest away from Park), then tighten the linkage cable adjustment until the shifter on the transmission is right at its stop on the transmission. The shift indicator needle should be centered on the letter. (If the transmission is now working properly and the needle is still off, you can adjust the needle inside the shifter housing by sliding its clip on the bracket attached to the shift lever. I didn't say it would be easy to get at it...)

When the transmission will not move in reverse this means the reverse apply band is worn out 95% of the time, since the bank lies deep inside the transmission the transmission must be torn down and overhauled to repair this, there is no in vehicle fix for this loss of reverse.

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.

2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee 2w Drive won't go into reverse.


Service the transmission and when you have the pan off, adjust the reverse band. It is either out of adjustment or worn out. Try the adjustment first and if it doesn't get any better, you'll have to have the transmission rebuilt.

Transmission slips or doesn't engage in reverse


Service the transmission, when you have the pan off, adjust the rear band. Loosen the lock nut. Tighten the adjuster to 10 ftlbs. Loosen the adjuster 2 turns and tighten the locknut. You either have an model 500 transmission (6 cylinder engine) or model 518 (V8 engine). In both transmissions reverse is controlled exactly the same. If adjusting the band doesn't fix it, then it will need rebuilt.
