transmission problems. need an opion or advise

OK here it is. I looked at a 190e today. And I am really interested in it. so me and my step-dad took it for a test drive today and we went through the gears and we realized the reverse isnt working. i was woundering if it could be low on transmission fluid might cause that? And also i am woundering if the transmission modulator valve could cause that problem. b/c i figure if it is something that isnt major i will get it. i was just asking yall what could make the reverse in the tranny not to work?


i got it up on a level road and tried it agian. and it took about 3000 rpm's befor the reverse to work and it was only doing about 5mph at that case.


so any responce will help me out. thank you.

No reverse doesn't sound good. Odds are it isn't just something minor... Welcome to the forum, BTW!

You don't say where you are and what year of the car is it.
I used to own 83' 300 tdt with some hesitation between 1st and 2nd gear, as well it took over 2 seconds to engage the reverse.
Put about 30,000 miles on the top of original 260000 and sold it running the same way. Those transmission are famous to have glitches like that, but on the side of annoyment they seem to hold for years.
Quite cheap to rebuild as well.
