when i put the truck in reverse it doesnt move but when i engage the truck in 4 low it moves but it slips bad do you have any ideas about what could be wrong with it? it still drives forward though.
wrong transmission fluid?
needs to be rebuilt?
My car has an automatic transmission.
You have the Chrysler 46RE transmission. Among the possible causes of what you describe is a rear servo piston that is sticking or broken, pin bore wear and/or the reverse band is slipping. The servo piston on the 46RE has a tendency to get misaligned in the bore and that results in inadequate force on the band. If bad enough, reverse line pressure will apply force against the misaligned piston, breaking or damaging the piston. The bore can also get worn resulting in band apply pressure that is too low. I would consider the foregoing possibility first. This can potentially be repaired with the transmission still in place but if the bore is damaged, that could be a problem because the bore is integral to the case. If you want this investigated, and repaired if possible, please request a no reverse diagnostic and the responding certified mechanic will get this resolved for you.
