    will it not go into reverse at all or just when it gets hot if it is when it gets hot the valve body is the culprit if not the trans will have to come out but keep in mind the valve body should be replaced anyways alot of problems for this transmission,another problem is the od/reverse drum along with the support cover for this drum i have rebuilt many of these tranny's without removing it from the car as long as you have 1st 2nd and 3rd gear you dont have to worry about the forward clutch drum inside the trans the rest of the guts come out the side by left front tire, support cover has the cooler line sticking out of success rate 100%
