    my neighbor has a late 90s style 4x4 chevy with the 4l80e in it, he siad it shifts fine in forward gears, but doesnt have reverse, the tranny has 1xx,xxx miles on it, is this a sign the tranny is going out or could there just be a problem with the reverse section of it?? i hate to see him spend the money to get a new one put in, i wish i knew how to rebuild them cuz i would, thanks for the help, chris

    sounds like he needs to have it rebuilt, sorry..he has either a valve in the valve body stuck, or the sprag clutch that holds and allows it to go into reverse is wore out on him... either way, youdon't want to mess with that tranny unless you are a pro... I went through one 6 times in school before I got it all right... and normally, I only have to do it once!
