Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My transmission in my 95 gmc pickup is
pulling in reverse on flat ground but if. I
hook my boat to it and try to back it up it
won't move and the more I rev it the trans
fluid backs up the tranny dipstick Tube.  
????????? What the hell?

1 Answer


Could be a badly worn reverse band inside the transmission, the reason the fluid backs up the dipstick tube is the fluid is getting too hot and is rapidly expanding, this will cause a total transmission failure soon. It already maybe too late but get it checked by a transmission shop, after the repairs are completed you should consider putting on a transmission cooler, it can really help with the life of your trans especially if you do some towing.
