The car goes forward but only stays in gear about ten minutes then it will not shift gears anymore, I can not get it to go in reverse at all. I did take about 3 quarts of extra transmission fluid out (courteous of previous owner). Would a transmission flush help? Is there electronics in the transmission that may be causing the problem? I do get the arrow indicator light, when the transmission stops going into any gear. Once engine has cooled it will then work again in forward gears but still no reverse.
Do the reverse lights come on when the gearshift is put in reverse?
I suppose it COULD be the PNP switch, but it should be going into limp mode (3rd gear) instead of not forward at all.
There is a small filter at the pump pickup that is un-replaceable; it sounds like either this is clogged or the valve body solenoid is dead (also un-replaceable) without removing the transmission from the car.
Un-replaceable, is that a word? Hmm...

A learning experience is one of those things that says, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that."
The Transmission flush did help, but still will not go into reverse, I agree with the solenoid diagnostics and small filter at pump should be check and repaired. Now looking for a Transmission shop that would not take me for all my money, any body have a good est price of this transmission repair should cost? Attempt to do it myself, but need to complete building my shop first a 22x 30 dream.
