If you need to screw the band adjustment in that far chances are that there is no friction material left on the band. If you keep driving like that the band will begin to eat into the drum and shed fine metal (like what happens to worn brake shoes when they eat up the drum) which can and will contaminate the remainder of the internal hydraulics and do even more damage. Nothing worthwhile you can do to fix the problem short of replacing it with a scrapyard unit (including converter) or having yours rebuilt.

No reverse on a 2000 s10 extreme extended cab with a 4.3 v6 also slips from 1rst to 2nd


Might be a bad low-reverse band. I'd try `SEA-FOAM t-r-a-n-s-m-ission additive(one and a half cans)and follow directions. When and if the thing starts shifting into reverse and stops slipping, drain it,replace fluid and filter,and if it has a band adjusting screw,have it adjusted. don-ohio (:^)

1999 dodge QC/w diesel. Transmission slipping in the reverse direction. Why??? Duane


duane there should b adjustments for ur reverse band in ur trans pan .wen dropped u can access these pivoting levers in the pan pull them with ur fingers to actuate the band, u should b able to move them with about1 inch of play or less anymore and band wont apply. u either have band lining material starting to wear,or ur reverse clutches are starting to wear out. chek ur fluid condition, if its dark w a burnt smell ur trans probably gonna need overhauled, if not then ur adjustment may do the trick. note that the very loose band pivot rod is gonna b reverse..... good luck hope this was helpful

The torque converter is why you cant move.If it were bands, first and reverse are the first to go. Not sure why its not starting. The 2 are unrelated.

1997 Dodge Caravan Sport. I was driving normal then it quit pulling. Now have 3 forward gears no more than 8 miles an hour. No reverse. Dropped trans pan small metal on magnet.Fluid looked ok. Changed...


The correct fluid to put in a 1997 van is (ATF-3). Sounds like you need to make adjustment on both the forward and reverse bands of the transmission to correct your problem. The kickdown band (front) forward is located at the top (outside) of the transaxle near the front. To adjust the band,loosen the lock nut approximately 5 turns. With the lock nut loose the adjusting screw should turn freely in case. Tighten the adjustment screw with an inch lb. torque wrench to 72 in-lbs. Then back the screw out 2 1/4 turns, hold the screw in place and tighten the lock nut to 35 ft-lbs. Then after removeing the transmission pan and filter the low-reverse band is located next to the valve body. Loosen the lock nut 5 turns so the adjustment screw is free. Turn the adjustment screw in to 41 in-lbs, then back the screw out 3 1/2 turns. Hold the adjustment screw and tighten the lock nut 10 ft-lbs. Install transmission pan/with gasket and refill transaxle to proper level. Test drive van. Be safe and block the rear wheels before you raise the van and try to work under it. Hope this will help you.

1998 dodge ram 1500 2wd 5.9 eng. how to change


just drop the transmission pan to drain it and the filter is right there in the valve body,DON'T mess the band adjustment,they are only to stop the planetary gears so you can go into reverse,there is no such thing as adjusting bands! that went out with the fifties!

What are the transmission band adjustment for a 1995 v6 3.0 dodge caravan


The proper fluid for that Tranamiaaion is Mopar ATF Plus 3 Type 7176. I recommend using it as I have found it does make a difference.

LOW-REVERSE BAND:
  1. Loosen, then back off lock-nut approximately five turns.
  2. Tighten adjusting screw to 41 in.lb.
  3. Back adjusting screw off 3½ turns, then tighten lock-nut to specifications
KICK DOWN BAND
The kick down band adjusting screw is located on the left side, top front of the trans-axle case.
  1. Loosen lock-nut and back off nut approximately five turns. Ensure adjusting screw turns freely in the trans-axle case.
  2. Using tool No. C-3880-A and adapter tool No. C-3705 , or equivalents, tighten band adjusting screw to72 in.lb.
  3. Back adjusting screw off 2¼ turns, then holding screw in position, tighten lock-nut to specifications.
Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer any other questions you may have.

My tranmission was slipping and didnt go reverse so i changed my oil and filter now gears are passing but it still isnt going in reverse what could the problem be?


Low / Reverse band is likely fried. Remove the pan and valve body, check band adjustment per service manual. Or just pull the trans and rebuild it.
