Best case...you may have a shift lever adjustment issue. do a physical inspection and look for damage

worst case...your trans will need to be replaced...even GM will not rebuild these

Idling rough when put into foward/reverse gears


Check clutch master and slave cylinder, and throwout bearing.

If automatic, change transmission fluid and go from there.

Ninety eight ford explorer will barely accelerate from a complete stop until about twenty mph then it drives normally until it comes to a complete stop again However in reverse it runs and accelerates...


It sounds as though the transmission is slipping. You say it works okay at about 20mph, well by then it should be in 2nd gear. And you say reverse works fine. Reverse and 1st having no internal components in common, and in 2nd gear there is a band to assist the forward clutches. So it sounds like either the forward clutches of the low one-way clutch are bad. Take it to a transmission shop and ask them to road-test it.

Van wont go forward or reverse


check transmission fluid level and manual linkage adjustment if all is okay transmission could need over haul,sound like transmission has worn burned forward clutch plates damaged pistons or seals could have damaged roller clutch, oil pump faulty or stuck pressure regulator many things will cause transmission not to move in any gear.

All the sudden Reverse does not work at all. After driving forward only for a couple of weeks, Reverse reappeared. Transmission fluid is at normal level. The fluid appears is little brown, but not too bad....


Problem could have been an intermittent transmission electrical problem, computer needs to be scanned for an intermittent code, this is the first place to start. If no codes are found and transmission is currently working okay then unfortunately there is no way to check for problem further at this time unless it has a problem again.

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee makes a lot of noise when selecting Reverse. Forward gear okay. Now, reverse doesn't work and it sounds like the transmission is coming apart.


Your automatic transmission has an internal low and indirect clutch. The indirect clutch is what's used when your vehicle is in reverse. You might have a heavy jerking when you put it into gear that feels like vehicle got hit by another or loud rattling or chattering in gears. It very well may be coming apart as you think and soon, so I'd recommend taking it to your local transmission shop to inspect and test it and they can give you a more detailed idea of what it would take to fix it. good luck

Poor responce when first started


If lurches when going forward and requires extra throttle, but reverses okay, it due to breakage of the valve body spring. All ZF HP-series automatics have this problem. Have a qualified Jag shop (independent is okay) replace the spring with the improved unit. If you wait too long the transmission will fail completely.

Transmission


I have same problem with a 95 4runner 4wd 3VZE engine and A340 H tranny. I had previously had a real bad problem with all gears "neutralizing" where car would rev up but not move forward or rear in any gear. I spent $ 1,500.00 for transmission and transfer case rebuild, and problem not solved. After months of research, I found out there is a "valve body" which is a an electronic plate inside the transmission drain pan right above the transmission filter. These valve bodies have solenoids which act as mini pumps inside transmission. I ordered a kit through a San Antonio, TX independent distributor (# 1 solenoid, # 2 solenoid, and a so called "lock up solenoid". Kit comes with full details how to replace those three sensors. I did job myself one afternoon..no problem. 4runner works like new now except for the reverse which acts as you mention. There is a fourth solenoid in the transfer case (not transmission) whcih was not part of the "kit" I bought. Although I'm not sure it is the cause, after replacing the other solenoids, the fix was dramatic on the forward gears. I'm currently researching if solenoid # 4 may be the cause of the reverse gear still not working fine.
