Soory to say this but it sounds like its time for a trany overhaul, this happens, even if you had no warning signs, you got 159,000 miles out of it but now its time for a rebuilt trany, this truck is a 1999 4wd with a good engine its worth repairing, good luck.

transmissions are very vehicle specific, like it has to come out of the same year, same make and model, and have the same bolt patterns, also the gear ratios have to be the same. if the gear ratios are different you can take it to a transmission shop and they should be able to fix the ratio problem, although if it is grinding in reverse, that is the first sign to a bad transmission.

It is inside the transmission. It is called a reaction sun shell, it strips out, which causes the grind noise your talking about.

Reverse gear has grinding noise...?


Have them flush the fluid out under warranty and put in new fluid, and have them bleed the clutch lines in case air is getting in there. Audi and VW claim lifetime transmission fluid but it's BS - I've changed relatively low mile fluid from these cars and it was horrendous. It's possible that the fluid itself is causing trouble, but it's more likely that it is a synchro problem. If it was a clutch issue, you should have problems with more than just reverse gear - a clutch simply engages and disengages the engine and transmission, regardless of which gear it is. The problem (if not fixed by fluid) is in the transmission, and being under warranty, don't accept another "suggestion" like they're giving you. Changing your clutch isn't gonna do it.
