1995 Bonneville SLE Slam into reverse.
Well today I found out that my tranny slams into reverse when I put the shifter in reverse. It shifts fine into drive but reverse is a loud slam not a jolt or anything just a slam. I dont know how long its been going on this is the first time I noticed it but I usually drive the SSE. It backs up fine its just the inital shift into reverse. The tranny in my car is pretty weak right now. A couple months ago on a 3 to 1 downshift under WOT the rpms rose to 6k then the bands kicked in causeing them to squeal bad. I haven't done that since that happened. Otherwise it still shifts good through all the gears but I have been very light on it since the transmisson did that. I guess its getting to the end of the road for the SLE. Its got problems neways. It leaks power steering fluid, tranny is weak, the car stalls around when accelerating (like a vaccum leak in the manifold but its not), and overdrive kicks out after the car warms up and it wont work lol. Good thing I got the SSE to fall back on now sigh.
