Reverse Shifting

I just bought a 2008 super duty with 30k miles. When I shift into reverse it kinda feels like it slips a little bit then kinda clunks in. All foward gears are fine. Is this something I need to talk to a dealer about? Or is this just "one of those things" that some trucks have? It kinda bothers me... id appreciate some input thanks.

Hmmm no ideas? Its gotten worse.. when the tranny is fully warmed up it now "shudders" when in the reverse gear. I think its time to take it in.

Sounds like your Direct Clutch is going! Mine did the same thing before I rebuilt it. Check dip stick for dirty fluid and check codes. You might see or seen in the past " Direct Clutch Solenoid Failure and/or Direct Clutch Friction Failure". Very common problem for these trannies! Do yourself a favour and replace with Suncoast Rebuild Kit. Any very important! Replace Torque Converter, cooler lines, filters, and all solenoids. Everything will be contaminated if you had friction and steel material burnt up in pan!
