Delay on reverse

Delay or a bang

Posted by on

1 Answer

Other than changing the solenoid pack, I would
say your due for a complete transmission rebuild

That is what I would do,pull it & rebuild it, & do the
valve body updates

Once they slip or bang into gear, you have internal wear
& problems

I know of people that are on their 3 rd trans in a 2005 Expedition

Ford Trans are flawed when new,most of them & well known & can be fixed, but only when you build one

If you never change the fluid every 3 years, your done, with any vehicle

There is a bang noise coming from underneath similar to the reverse bang phenomena which has got worse over the day

Don't know your model of car or truck...but this is usually a side effect of a worn u-joint in the drive shaft...or CV joint. Please have this inspected before you get stranded. Should be a free inspection at most shops. Hope this helps.

Transmission problems

It could be a sign of bad transmission solenoid. If so, your vehicle has trouble shifting into drive or reverse. Normally, when you start your car, you're able to shift into drive or reverse right away. With a bad transmission solenoid, the vehicle could have a delay of a few seconds, or even take several minutes to warm up and operate properly. During this delay, the vehicle will act similar to how it behaves in neutral. It won't stay in park, and when you press the gas pedal, the vehicle will make an engine revving noise but not move.

The reverse does not work when engine warms up code problem po 732

If reverse does not engage or only moves when flooring the gas then you have a typical valve body problem. In fact it may be a two part fix which is usually the case but not always.

The valve body is the "brain" of the transmission and has valves and bores inside of it along with 5 solenoids. There is one valve called the booster valve that will wear down due to poor manufacturing and debris and gunk build up from lack of transmission fluid changes (suppose to be done every 30,000 miles but more strongly suggested every 20,000 along with the transmission spin on filter).

Once the problem gets bad enough but before reverse is lost completely it will delay going into reverse, meaning when the shifter is moved to reverse it takes several seconds for it to engage. Then once it does it will slam/clunk/bang into gear. The banging into gear causes what is known as the input shaft nut to loosen and untorque. Once it untorques enough it won't allow reverse to engage. However, it will cause problems in 2nd gear as well.

Since you only have issues when warm it sounds like a valve body issue. It is time to replace it. A shop will tell you the transmission is shot and the entire thing needs to be replaced. IT DOES NOT! The dealer will charge you $1,000 to replace the valve body...again TOO EXPENSIVE. I sell rebuilt valve bodies for a fraction of the cost and it can be done in 45 minutes by someone who has never seen a valve body before. The Saturn transmission (and car as a whole) is easy to work on and does not require any special tools or knowledge. I send my customers instructions with pictures and my e-mail for any questions.

You can search this online and on to verify. My name is Special Forces on Saturnfans, look up my threads about this common problem. Good luck!

2000 Hyundai elantra transmission delay, reverse going

Did you check the transmission fluid level? If necessary, add fluid. However you probably have a more serious problem. Take the car to a qualified transmission mechanic.
