Default reverse slips

I own a 1995 Ranger, 2wd, 4cyl, auto trans. with 188,000 miles. I use it mainly for transportation and carry very light loads occasionally. Ten years and 40,000 miles ago I had a problem with the transmission. The problem was when I backed up an incline it slipped very badly. On level ground there was no problem. All other gears are ok. I took it to Aamco and they rebuilt the transmission and also installed a rebuilt valve body. It has been working fine until recently when the same problem is now occurring. About two months ago I took a trip and drove it 8 hours at 60 to 75 mph each way. The problem started after that but I don't know if the trip had anything to do with it.

Default Re: reverse slips

It only slips when backing up hill? Sounds like it is low on fluid....?
