SOURCE: 0.transmission takes a minute or 2 before reversr gear engages

The anti-drain-back valve in your torque converter has gone bad. The torque converter drains into the tranny when you shut down, and you have to wait until the pump refills it before it can work.

The pump does NOT fill the converter in park, only in one of the gear positions, or neutral. Start it up in NEUTRAL, wait a minute, and drive off.

No quick fixes, once it slip the transmission is pretty well done due to damage to the clutch packs, pull the pan and see how much debris is in there, if it is allot then an overhaul is needed, I would suggest that all the shift solenoids be replaced during the fix, also make sure th connector to the tran is in good condition, no loose pins or damaged connector locks.

I think he's referring to the valve body which is the hydraulic part of the gearbox assembly. Can only replace it.

SOURCE: while driving and during automatic gear shifts it

Sounds like you might be low on fuel. If not you may need to go and have the transmission flushed and tranny filter changed. It all depends on how many miles is on it and the driving conditions, but what you speak of sounds like the issues stated above.

SOURCE: my 1994 525 bmw, Auto/Man transmission started

no checking the trans fluid. There is a drain and fill plug. Jack up the car, keep it level, at hot temp, remove fill plug, if a little fluid comes out, it is at the correct level. know the difference between the drain and fill plug. the fill plug is higher.

How do gears to drive pto go in the manual transmission


If your transmission is PTO ready, there will be a plate on the side of the tans where the PTO bolts to it. The PTO will have a gear that goes into the transmission that is driven off of a gear on the input shaft. You will be able to engage and disengage the PTO by a slip gear in the PTO itself.

Car goes into reverce but does not engage completely works fine in forward, when in reverce it seems lik it wants to ingage but does not. it makes a chattering sound and feeling. what electric part puts...


Hello. As you know, the transmission is one of the more sophisticated components in any auto. It takes the most transmission pressure to engage reverse, third, and fourth gear in an auto tranny. In an auto tranny, the shifter is connected to a linkage that manually shifts between the different gears in the transmission. When you shift into reverse, all transmission pressure is concentrated to engage reverse. When you shift to drive the transmission will operate normally, building pressure until it can shift into the next gear. With third, second, or first gear selected it will lock out all higher gears (Unless the TCU detects overrevving of the engine, in which case it will override gear selection and upshift to avoid engine damage). All the TCU does in a modern auto tranny is control shift points. Years and years ago, shifting was controlled by a spring attached to the gas pedal. When the gas pedal was depressed, the spring would expand. As tranny pressure grew, the spring would become compressed until it was fully compressed, engaging the next gear. The harder you stepped on the gas, the longer you went until the tranny shifted. In modern transmissions the TCU dictates shift points, and not much else. The TCU will also control when the torque converter will lock, but that's where it's duties end. The problem with engaging reverse is either a linkage issue, or a problem with the pump not building enough pressure to fully engage reverse.

Try putting the shifter in reverse, holding the brakes firmly, and giving the car gas. If the car reaches a higher RPM and suddenly slams into reverse it is the pump. The pump will only build enough pressure to engage reverse with higher RPM's. If the pump is severly damaged it won't engage at all, but if this is the case it probably won't engage third or fourth gear either at that point. If the problem is with the linkage, reverse just won't engage whatsoever, despite RPM's. I'd say start with the shift linkage. If it's bent or misadjusted it could cause reverse to not be fully engaged. The TCU doesn't control reverse at all, since there are no shift points and no need for the torque converter to lock.

Gears won't engage


I am assuming that it is auto. trans??Check trans. fluid level and look under car to make sure linkage is connected and moving. Also when did it stop working ? all of a sudden or after sitting for long time? or over time?But quick guess, If all is good most likely torque converter went out. Then tranny issue, sorry no easy fix!!!
