If it wasn't slipping before, you are either still low on fluid, or you have the filter on wrong or the wrong one. If it just started to slip, its due to low fluid. It sounds to me like you had these problems already, so you changed the filter and fluid to see if it would help. If this was the case, its not going to help you. I hate to tell you, but you need service if you have no reverse, and slippage. There is nothing else you can do, you did the right thing, but you have more severe problems with the tranny!!

Driving down the road and tranny started slipping so I pulled to the side of the road, then let the truck sit for 10 minutes, then the tranny worked again but within 1500 feet was slipping again, and will...


It sounds like you either have a dirty filter, or a solenoid is faulty in the transmission. Change the fluid and filter, put some Lucas transmission oil in it and see if that resolves the issue. If the solenoid is dirty then it will cause the transmission to shift improperly, the Lucas will clean it.

200 740il no reverse when cold , once warms up some reverse


If you haven't had the Transmission filter replaced lately i would start there. If you filter is clogged and it is cold the fluid gets thicker making it hard to circulate through transmission When the car warms it heats the fluid enough to circulate through the clogged filter some what and then give's you the reverse but not totally. It can be done on your own with a set of ramps. You have to drain the tranny fluid then take out the bolts for the tranny filter housing . Replace the filter then fill the franny back with new fluid. If that doesn't work then you have either Band slip-age and need a tranny tune up or you have deeper issues. But it is always a good point to start with the filter when you have problems of that nature. If you have never had a tranny tune up then maybe you should take it to a certified transmission mechanic to have it tuned just for general purpose that way they will also diagnose the problem. One word to the wise. Take it somewhere were you trust them because if not you may be told that you need a new tranny and you really won't.

1992 grand prix transmission slip in reverse


Slow, slipping or no reverse: “lo-reverse” clutches are worn out, fluid leak in the reverse apply circuit. It is possible to remedy a fluid problem by removing the checkball from its cage in the case in the trans may help (must remove valvebody), or adding a high-viscosity additive such as Lucas Transmission additive or other seal restorer product. May also have worn boost valve (can replace in the pan).

Thank you for using fixya and good luck

When gasing the engine tranny slips


If you have a manual transmission it is time to replace your clutch. If you have an automatic transmission it is time for a transmission rebuilt. You can have your auto trans fluid and filter changed and this might help, but I doubt it. There is very little you can do for a slipping clutch in a manual tranny except replace the clutch. If you have a manual tranny with a clutch that is manual adjusted then the cluth may be out of adjustment, but I doubt you have a manually adjusted clutch it is more then likely hydralic.

Transmission not working when hot


well sounds pretty bad, did it start slipping before all of this and gradually get worst? anyways when this happens the cheapest diagnostic fix is pull all of the bolts on the bottom of the tranny to dran all the fluid, not sure if this tranny has a filter but pretty positive it does, pop a new filter in there you will see it when you you drop the pan, let all fluid drain and refill with the specific type of tranny fluid it calls from you can find the quanity and type from the auto store when you get the parts, substitute one of the quarts with lucas stop slip and hopefully it will bring the tranny out of it. otherwise your bands are shot and need a rebuild/tranny replacement. good luck and take care
