Post 2g auto gsx
I just got a 2g auto gsx. When I first drove it, it would go in reverse but the rpm would go a bit high before moving even slowly (3000 rpm).

After driving an hour to my house, I tried going in reverse again but this time no matter how much I gassed it it never moved.

Why would my reverse just go out like that? What needs to be done to get me up and running again?

Thanks in advance.

Note: The car is almost 100% stock with 190k on the odo. It has an intake and exhaust.

I just replied to your PM. Check the things I listed in that PM first, fluid level etc etc. Don't forget to check the fluid after the trans is warm and idling in neutral, not park.

I'd buy a new filter and pull out the valvebody and check the o-ring that sits up above it. If that o-ring is damaged or not sealing properly you'll lose reverse for sure.

The o-ring I'm talking about is mentioned in this IPT video. It's worth having a look, as it's not very difficult to pull the pan and valvebody to get to it.

Where can that be purchased? Can it be purchased on its own?
I can't tell from the vid if it is just a normal oring or a special piece.

Do you think it would come in this kit?

I'm sure it would come in that kit. From what I remember when I put in my shift kit, it's just an ordinary o-ring. You should be able to pick one up from a parts store that's the same diameter and just replace it.

Thanks, it should be getting rebuilt this Friday so hopefully it gets taken care. Did you go with the IPT shift kit?

If it's getting rebuilt, then yes, it definitely should take care of the problem.

IPT sells the shift kit made by "Trans Lab" I got mine off of the dsmtuners classifieds for like $40 a couple years ago. It's the same one IPT sells though.

I'll look into that thanks. Would you recommend just getting the rebuilt valve body from IPT directly?
