Synchronizers, bearings. Could be the clutch, but this would be a problem with forward(1st gear and reverse)

What kind of and how much oil do I put in my 5 speed trans 1996 dodge avenger 2.0 4 cly

Engine Oil not the trans right?
Should be 4.5 qts Capacity
The manual calls for 5w-30 but you can use 10w-30 if you have high miles and issues with oil leaking. Of course once you fill it, check your oil dipstick to make sure you have enough.

Why does my 94 dodge stealth 5 speed tranny lock up in reverse, car will not move and I can't get it back out of reverse, when I jack the front end up it releases from reverse

This sounds like you may have a problem with the shift linkage and when you jack up the car it is taking the pressure off of linkage and frees it up, I am not for sure but some have adjustments that can be made to fix the problem. If that's not the problem then you may have a problem with the trans itself. If you can get to the trans you could unhook the linkage and try shifting the trans with the conectors coming from the trans.

1989 dodge dynasty v6, fwd, transaxle 3 speed auto, good condition, experiencing shift problem, doesnot want to shift into passing gear, sometimes it does, right now it doesn't, any takers

most auto trans don't shift into reverse when low. Reverse takes the most fluid of all the gears.
Check for a bad shift solenoid or wires to and from that circuit. Most trans-axles have them now.

1996 dodge ram diesel no reverse

It could be a few different problems but the trans will likely need rebuilt. There is one solution that you can do with the trans in the truck. It might be that the reverse band is out of adjustment. You have to remove the bottom pan to adjust the reverse band. There is a test to see if its the reverse band. First do all the other gears work? Next drive it in Manual 1st. Does it have engine braking when you let off. If no, its the band.

Reverse engages HARD!!!

Check for trans codes then I would suggest a fluid change if there are no trouble codes, many times these kinds of problems are caused by a little piece of dirt causing a shift solenoid to stick.
