If it has ever been driven low on tranmission fluid this could be a bad sign, check the fluid level, assuming it is and has been full this could mean your internal clutches are worn, and tranmission will have to be rebuilt or replaced, the color and scent of the fluid are good indicators of burnt clutches, if it is more brown than red, and smells burnt...thats bad news

Get a limited slip differential stopp slipping in reverse?


limited slip differentials are so designed that when one axle looses traction the pressure is applied through the side gears to lock up diff so that both wheels have to turn. If it slips in reverse then in will slip going forward . I would be inclined to look for a reverse gear problem in the gear box/ transmission. If it is an auto check for reverse solenoid operation.

V70 poured new Dex3 auto trans in. Reverse gear stops working after a few days equal 500km, but all forward are still ok.


Sounds like your transmission is going bad. If your transmission is slipping only in drive or forward gears, then it could be just that it is low on fluid, but when reverse starts to slip it usually means rebuild/replace transmission.

Good luck

No forward gears


There could be a problem in the valve body of the transmission, preventing fluid to flow where it needs to be and causing the clutch plates to be slipping. The other thing could be a pressure problem, with same results of the clutch plates slipping. Get your transmission rebuilt to resolve the problem.

Transmission slips in reverse


I would have a transmission shop look at it. It could be as simple as a service, but its hard to tell without getting it on a lift.

96 ROVER DISC. Has strong reverse - won't engage any forward gears. Fluid seems full even when warm.


Make sure the 4wd shifter is in correct position and hasn't slipped out of correct spot to get you moving forward.

I have a 1998 Oldsmobile Bravada auto trans drive works fine but no reverse


Are you sure you have all 4 forward gears? Most of the time a no reverse condition also means 1st and 3rd only.No 2nd or 4th.If you dont have all the forward gears as i suspect , the reaction shell is stripped or broken.If you do have all the forward gears then these are the two most common reasons you do not have reverse.1 reverse input clutches are damaged or burnt 2 forward cltches have slipped to the point they are welded together causing a mechanical bind in reverse and also causing the transmission to pull forward in neutral.Let me know if i can help.Good Luck.

The transmission seems to slip when going in reverse in my Ford Explorer 1994 (OK going forward). Transmission fluid is OK.


How many miles and is it the original transmission? The AOD transmissions are known for 3-4 and reverse to go out first. The transmission is probably heading towards an inevitable rebuild or replacement. The reverse clutch pack is probably getting to old to hold correctly.
