I have never seen any thread on reaming and bushing the reverse solenoid. You only have to ream the case to replace a bad bushing due to irregular bore wear. Great product, very needed and your correspondence and care was appreciated. Has anyone solved this same problem? The positive side of this I feel this can be repaired by removing only the transfer case then removing the retaining shaft. As a bonus, they come with upgrades to prevent or cure common problems that the factory should have fixed in the first place! Based on what I've read here so far, the more knowledgeable and experienced people have given a lot of good advice.
Your kit resolved my issue completely and we are back motoring down the road. I originally though that was an electrical issue because the problem got much worse the day a lot of ice melted under the truck. Reverse only works at all when the oil is cold, at times you can hear something pulling in and out in reverse. No engine codes, unless I really let it slip, but then it only throws P1700 I think that's right , I guess indicating that the input speed and output speed are mismatched given the targeted gear. My next step; the reverse servo extendo pin.
Please let me know what you think, I'd love to know what wrong with this thing. I meant servo but typed solenoid. This problem started very suddenly. It absolutely boggles me that it will go into 1st perfectly if I shift manually, but it will not move if I try to take off in D.

I probably forgot to mention some of the steps, but you get the gist of it.
In a few isolated cases the band can be changed and the transmission resealed and put back in your van. The 5R55E featured more accurate computer controls to accommodate the additional forward gear and introduced adaptive shift control. With that being said my suggestion would be to call the gentlemen at GotTransmissions. In the event that your transmission has made its last shift, I highly recommend you look at replacing it with a over one that has simply been rebuilt. I couldn't get the piston back in the bore, so I used the cover to push it in by slowly tightening the bolts. Most properly functioning solenoids will return a reading of somewhere between 20 — 30 ohms.
Demand for them may change in time as there may be fewer of these vehicles on the road. Thanks for providing a cost effective repair! Buy a top quality product and pay for it once. No engine codes, unless I really let it slip, but then it only throws P1700 I think that's right , I guess indicating that the input speed and output speed are mismatched given the targeted gear. The 5R55E featured more accurate computer controls to accommodate the additional forward gear and introduced adaptive shift control. The same thing happens if I try to take off in 'D'.

The servo is the hydraulic apply mechanism and can be replaced in the vehicle. I have manual first gear, but maybe not engine braking in first-I'll test it.

I don't know what to try. Any idea what might be wrong? Let us know what you think of the new look! Reverse went out over 6 months ago. It was the first 5-speed automatic transmission to be employed by an American automaker. Explorer Forum has probably saved you that much already, and will continue to save you money as you learn how to diagnose fix problems yourself and learn which modifications work without having to experiment on your own. The problems started very subtly and intermittent at first, but over the course of over a month, it had come to this state. All the clutches were virtually welded together so there was no slippage to them at all so I guess the notches were the weak point.
