0.transmission takes a minute or 2 before reversr gear engages
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

This transmission shifted smooth and strong through all gears until today when it stopped all of ... Any idea on where we should start tackling this issue? .... Also, make sure that the pressure tester is not leaking or you will run the tranny dry(use ...
Transmission fluid is on te base of the engine all settle up. Once the oil runs all over the transmission will work easily. I would make check and refill the oil on the transmission.
Until then, start ur engine and let it warm and pump for a minute until all the oil is washing all over and then go.
It sounds like the reverse band broke. Typically with automatic transmission when you put the transmission in reverse a couple things happen. Usually, the forward clutch engages and the reverse band engages holding the reverse drum from turning, which causes the planetery gears to make the vehicle move backwards. If the band breaks there is nothing told hold that drum from turning and you have a forward gear. The bad news is the trany is going to have to come out to be repaired and usually the reverse drum is one of the first things to go into the trany, so it has to be completely disassembled. Take it to a transmission shop have them check it, hopefully it's something simpler.
