Question about 1992 Suzuki Sidekick
First thing in the morning, reverse gear won't engage for a couple of minutes. I have to start the car and then put it in gear and wait. Most of the time when it does engage its smooth but sometimes it slams into gear. After the car has been driven for a short while there is no problem it goes into gear just fine
The anti-drain-back valve in your torque converter has gone bad. The torque converter drains into the tranny when you shut down, and you have to wait until the pump refills it before it can work.
The pump does NOT fill the converter in park, only in one of the gear positions, or neutral. Start it up in NEUTRAL, wait a minute, and drive off.
