Transmission Problem 1982 CJ-7

Dear Members I have just purchased a 82 CJ 7 I has been parked for approx. 1 year and now the it will not do anything in reverse but drives fine forward thru all gears!!!! Does anyone have a idea of what could be wrong with the reverse ??? It is a automatic transmission.

So someone please reply I am lost in this transmission matter and I am a new jeep man...and owner...

Thanks Stelo

First, get your wallet ready

No, it will be interesting to see what people have to say on this. But I can't imagine a problem like that with an automatic transmission would be fixed for cheap.

You could check the fluid level, but I doubt this has anything to do with the problem.

Low fluid will kill or drop out reverse first, then the rest of it 'really' fast.

That's great news. Maybe the problem can be fixed with a bottle or two of ATF.

It's possible. They are tough, I have seen buckets of mud come out of them and they still worked after fresh fluid.

Do you know WHICH automatic you have, Chrysler TF999 or GM's TH-400?

If it's the TH-400, I know EXACTLY what it is,
The center support busing is worn out and has let the direct drum drop down on the seals on the center support snout.

Not hateful expensive to fix (if you do it yourself) and not hard to fix if you can do an automatic trans without going into convulsions (most people can't)

If it's the Chrysler TF999, it's more than likely the band is out of adjustment or the servo seals have given up...
