I have a 95 dodge ram that I am having problems with no reverse. The truck is not worth enough to drop a lot of money on a new or rebuilt transmission. Im not a mechanic, but like to tinker. The truck had issues with forward gears but reversed was working, I didnt have the money to fix so I let it sit for over 3 yrs. I decided to tinker with it, I replaced the control solenoid, filter and fluid. now all forward gears work great but when I put it into reverse, It will back up slowly on its own, but if I give it gas it just revs up like its in nuetral and it vibrates like its trying to back up but wont go. Fluid level is good, nothing was found in the pan (very little shavings). Could it be air in the lines? bands need to be adjusted? or what?

Back in the day you were able to adjust the bands, not sure on a '95, it is a possibility. It just involves dropping the pan, and there was like a rocker arm so to speak, that had a set screw and a nut on it. You can pull that back by hand, it moves anyway. You would adjust that back up so there is hardly any play in it. Now that is the extent of what I know on these, But if is there it is worth a try. And if that didn't solve the problem, the trany would need work. You may want to pick somebodies brain at a trany shop.
