I have been trying to find an answer to my situation by reading through some of the posts but not having much luck. The guys at the tranny shop say the Bands are shot but I want a second or third opinion...Here is my dilemma...
I have a 1989 Bronco2 (2wd) auto tranny. When I put it in any gear and try to move, I have to rev the engine quite a bit(3000 rpm) before it grabs. Now, the truck has been sitting for a year not being driven while I have been restoring the body. The Tranny fluid was BLACK so I drained most of it and added a real expensive conditioning fluid. No performance change has taken place. The worst gear is reverse. I almost have to rev the engine at 4500 rpm to get the truck to move. When I do move forward, it seems to drive and shift fine. All problems are occuring when at a stand still.
