    Thanks, I have a 4-3 transmission. It only happens when I completely release the clutch. If I keep the clutch depressed it is not a bad.

    Grinding noise in an automatic is usually a planetary gear failure...leak or not it likely needs a rebuild.

  • Mr D 427 May 11, 2010

    Is it only grinding in reverse? How well does it travel between other gears? Is your tranny an automatic?

Well in that case, there may be something wrong with the syncro's (not sure of the spelling) pronounced sing-crows, or possibly an issue with your flex pate. From what your describing, the clutch is not allowing the tranny to fully engage into reverse, wich can mean one of two things. The gears are not lining up because they are coming up shy of where they should be, or, they are passing where they need to be.

Reverse not working on 1985 chevy 1/2 ton pickup

I would have it flushed as the filter and fluid only get about 1/4 of the fluid and it sounds like there is a lot more sludge in there.

I have a 85 corvette with trans. problems. Since I replace the fluid and filter it won't move when I put it in reverse and it has a hard time shifting into 2nd. Anyone know what to do??

it sounds to me like you lost one of the little ball bearings in the valve body when you removed the filter try going to your local salvage yard and ask if they have any cores you could get one out of and the counter man will more than likely know what part you need or your local transmission shop can help with that part and location but they will want to sell you a transmission job your trans is a common trans it should be a 700r4 but check to be sure 85 was a problematic year for corvette but mostly computer issues

I have a 71 chevy pick up truck with a turbo 350

Make sure the fluid is at the proper level and the vacuum line is connected with no cracks or leaks.

If that doesn't do it, make sure the linkage is actually putting it into reverse. Of course you should only do this check with the car shut off.

Good luck.

I just bought a 1986 chevy 1/2 ton with a fisher plow. I hooked up the plow and it won't go up or down, or left or right. The controls work, if I move the pistons on the valve body it still does'nt work....

un bolt the motor from the base, the pickup is just tin, they rot off and fall into the base. you may have valves stuck too, but if nothings moving and pumps running, it should labor BADLY

1985 corvette coupe very hard start

There is a series of two videos addressing a very similar problem with a 1989 Corvette, first one diagnosis, second one fix. Seems like this is a not unusual problem for these older Corvettes. Check out the links.

It sounds like your clutch master cylinder is not functioning correctly. First i would check the fluid level and then see if there is a leak.
