Hard to get into Reverse when cold 96 B2500 Ram Van

Unread post by Meridivs » Wed Dec 11, 2013 5:17 am

We have recently acquired a '96 Dodge RAM B2500 Conversion Van.

Since winter came around it developed a strange problem just after starting - if we try to put it into reverse with the transmission cold it would sit for around 40-50 seconds doing nothing then it would "bump" hard into gear.

With the AT fluid hot everything works as it should, the Reverse engages smoothly as soon as we move the lever.

Any idea why this happens and how we can fix it?

some valve bodies can cause this, the reverse band could cause this, the regulator valve pieces too. you should talk to a transmission shop in your area.
