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.

I have a 91 honda accord with an automatic trans. & when i shift into reverse it refuses to engage & makes a high pitch gear slipping grinding sound ! NOT GOOD ! ,I just replaced the transmission con


Definitely not good. The transmission is slipping internally due to worn gears and clutch packs. It will have to come out for rebuilding, IMO. Have a transmission shop check it out.
Good luck.

Transmission


Transmission model is 4L60E,and the symptoms you are describing is a common failure on these transmissions all the way back to it's predecesor,the 700 R 4 model.The reverse input shell,splines into the low/reverse planetary sun gear.The reverse input shell has a collar with splines made into it,and these splines are prone to stripping,and sometimes the collar itself will break free from the shell.Without the shell functioning,no reverse,and this is likely what you are hearing.Aftermarket companies sell heavy duty,and standard duty,replacements.Eventually,you will lose the forward gears also.Good luck.
