big hesitation in reverse

It's almost like it's engaging and disengaging. It started with a delay when I put into Reverse earlier in the day, followed by a slight stutter right when I gave it a little pedal in reverse that smoothed out quickly. I could make it stutter more/worse the more pedal I gave it right after the delay.

I had to back it out of the driveway and I waited for delay and let off the brake to let it push itself back a little bit but it would barely move so I gave a little push on the pedal and it was like a romping, it would barely back up, like it was engaging and disengaging. I had to limp it out of the driveway.

I didn't notice any noise from the trans area. I could slightly hear the motor revving while it wasn't backing up then sounded normal when it would engage but it was a noticeable BUMPing while slightly on the gas in reverse. I stayed steady on the pedal as I backed up about 50ft and it barely smoothed out with about 10ft left but it was a noticable chugging/hesitation that made it almost impossible to back it up.

Tow/haul never blinked.

Saving for a trans build now along with other fun things planned for this summer.

Making progress with this. Just ordered a couple solenoids. Crossing fingers that's it. But here is a clip I had my neighbor take hoping it would shutter enough to pick up in camera.

well I can tell you the direct clutch isn't controlled by a solenoid during reverse engagement, the manual valve is responsible for this.

Thanks Matt. Did you watch this clip I got of it. Look for flare followed by bang into gear at 13seconds and again at 16 seconds.

I'm worried about driving it because even in Drive if I come to a complete stop it might not want to go when I give it some pedal, it lugs and barely moves like it's in 5th or 6th then the rpm's will rise and it will drop a gear and seem normal.

I'm having a very similar problem. Did you ever figure anything out?
