Unhappy No Reverse Or Park

Soo I don't have Reverse or park. I have the 5r55e Transmission any ideas on how to fix it without spending much money?

Instead of being a tranny rebuild, can't it be a shift linkage prob?

Check the linkage....

When I lost reverse, reverse band hand snapped, I still had park and all other gears....drove it for another 6 months til I saved up the money to have it rebuilt.


And swapping in a manual tranny will be more costly and time consuming.
If u have another vehicle I say go and do the manual swap.

Well today i made a friend move the gear selector in the car while i grabbed onto the wire that changes the gears and It got to reverse. But then he moved it into another gear and i didn't have reverse anymore. So that means its the shift linkage?

No reverse here, same tranny. What/which wire did you grab and where. I'd like to hear a little more on this one.

Its by the Headers and you need two people , You need to grab onto the cable and have the other person shift and don't let the cable move and hope you get into a gear.

easeir way is to disconnect the shift link, and operate it manually.

either the range selector has snapped or you blew a seal. I doubt its a band, but i wouldnt be surprised if its valve body related.

sounds like its not selecting the right spots. if the truck will start in park and neutral, but not reverse its not the shift position sensor.

pluging it into a tech 2 is the best way to find out what gear its actually going into or "thinks" its going into. beyond that your tearing the trans out to repair it
