downshifting from 2 to first hard and it would take about 5 seconds to engage into drive only at normal operating temp everything works good now except reverse want engage this is a new problem
Still could be a valve body problem! ALL other shifter positions correct, park, drive and manual low?
there is 3 big solenoids and 5 small ones the clip on one of the small ones broke and I can here it a click in the valve body when in reverse does one of the small solenoids work reverse all other gears are fine and reverse worked fine in the old valve body I snapped the clip off one of the small solenoids when removing old valve body
can pull the valve body cover and put a new end on the wire so it will snap tight into the solenoid they will come lose easy without clip?does one of the small solenoids work reverse?
