I require some information or at least a pointer to the right thread... My car moves forward perfectyly and changes up and down silky smooth. The hassle starts when you select reverse. The transmission takes what feels like forever to select fully. When selected from D or P, one can hear the transmission engaging, but not fully. On an even surface the car moves back but with no power. Once the car has started moving and the engine revs are lifted slightly, the transmission will engage fully into reverse with a slight jerk. Can anyone tell me if there is something I can set or change to repair this problem, or do I have to exchange the tranny?
