Transmission Problems

Ok, so I was having some rough shifts and I got the transmission serviced, He boosted the oil pressure and serviced it. It shifts WAY better now, but now it seems when I put it in reverse it clunks and makes a weird sound. Anyone have this problem?

Nor sure if it helps with mine being a 97, but mine clunks also when you put it in reverse. I believe it has something to do witht he driveshast. Not sure, hopefully someone else has more insight on this for you.

most manuels do that... it seems to be like when you go to put it in gear and the gears inside the tranny are not aligned so then it will kinda chirp....ESPECIALLY IF YOU TRY TO PUT IT INTO REVERSE WHILE STILL KINDA COASTING FORWARD... my suggestion is play around with it.. here is option (1) when you start your truck dont imediatly put it into reverse.. while the truck is kinda warming up rev the motor slightly just like around 1000 rpms.. nothing real harsh on the motor.. the put make sure you engage the clutch fullyand then try to put into reverse.. make sure you TRY THIS BEFORE YOU LET DISENGAGE the emergancy brake... here is option (2) if tht does not work start the truck disengage the emergancy brake let the truck roll slightly... only about 5" and then try and put into reverse....if both of those dont end up working send me a pm and i will try and help you out.......

when you boost the line pressure like he did it will whine or squeal in reverse because the fluid is at a higher pressure.

also for the reverse thud make sure you are completely stopped and have your foot on the brake. it will always thud some, but my guess is since the line pressure is up it has no reverse delay like it used to.

I have an Auto trans. sorry I didn't mention that. I will try it with the foot on the brake, but I think that makes it worse, The noise is more coming from my bed too, because it makes a similar noise when going over a speed bump, my bed may be loose

i wouldnt worry about the reverse thud. its should do it anyway if the trans is running a high line pressure
