doest it idle lumpy, when driving forward, do the revs stay below normal when ideling, if so, the reverse gear may be damaged and have not sufficient power in revs to make this gear work, check with your mechanic, it wont cost anything for them to check it.

quite possible you have damaged front pump in gearbox when reinstalling gearbox ,does it engage reverse .........if it doesnt more than likely the torque converter has moved forward out of the gearbox oil pump ,thus not creating any pressure for gearbox to operate

How to change a automatic transmission?

Its a very big job, especially on a diamante. You need to disconnect any electrics to the transmission, remove the half shafts or universal joints, disconnect the shift linkage, remove the gearbox mount(s), the oil hoses. basically disconnect anything that is connected to the transmission. I believe however in a diamante you may be best removing the whole engine/transmission as a whole then seperate them outside the car.

Bmw e46 steptronic box, up to 1 minute delay in taking up foward drive in the morning from cold. perfect in reverse, fine for the rest of the day.

How old is the gearbox oil? In some cases, older oil (higher viscosity when old) will be too "thick" in colder weather and inhibit the synchro on your gears from slipping into 1st gear. The reason it only happens in 1st, is 'cause the shifting mechanism on the forward change is finer than that of the reverse change.

POSSIBLE Solution: Replace the gearbox oil with a lower viscosity ie. "thinner" oil.
