What is wrong with Reverse????

Asked by Nov 06, 2014 at 04:20 PM about the 2002 Dodge Durango SLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Dodge Durango SLT. It goes forward but will not go reverse. It goes into reverse but there is nothing there, even rolls forward while in reverse if your on a slight hill. My tranny fluid was low by about 2 Quarts, yes I said 2 quarts. It got that way because I did not know you had to check the levels while in Neutral as specified on the dip stick. Lately I had noticed some vibrating when accelerating and originally thought it was the u-joints or tires or something of that nature. Now I am thinking its slipping but only slightly. Could it be the TPS (throttle positioning sensor) or some other sensor or is my reverse gear gone and I need a new or used transmission???

From the research that I have been doing, sounds like the rear bands need to be adjusted, and or TPS replace along with new tranny fluid and filter. AAMCO is going to diagnose for me NO COST!! What a deal. I will comment when I find out some answers!

Usually,reverse is first to go in tranny,and there is no adjustment to band,s in and auto tranny,by running low fluid ,you have burn,t the band,s,,meaning may have to rebuild,or replace the tranny.

T_S_T I saw someone else had the same exact issue on a Dodge Forum and the bands is what they said took care of it. So you think I am better off looking for a salvage tranny and replacing it?
