Out side of a replacement or rebuild your options are limited most all turbos i have had in my 4x4's reverse is the first gear to go out, you can try an additive like lucas or something like that and see, your only out the price of it, but before you do that pull the dip stick and smell the fluid if it smells burnt don't waist you money on the additive and put it tords another trans. or a rebuild.

Shudder in reverse and seems to be slipping forward gears good


It is an auto I take it and the problem will be a reverse band/clutch pack solenoid servo. It it is a manual then the clutch works the same way in forward and reverse so if it was slipping in reverse ,it would also be slipping in forward gears as well. Run the fault codes to check for TCM and servo/solenoid faults.

I bought a 92 Chev 2500 4X4 from a guy just recently. He said the tranny wont go into gear. I found the transfer case was in neutral. So i put it in gear and away it goes. But reverse seamed sluggish. ...


If your transmission is a 700r4 (4l60) you have a reverse band that engages when you want to go in reverse. since it drives forward your low reverse clutch and your fwd clutch are working. This leaves the band which was probably slipping now is not engaging.
