5r110 hesitating in reverse

It started with a delay earlier in the day when I put it in reverse or drive. From what I've read....can be normal.

But when I went to move it into the street tonight it barely even worked in reverse. I put it in reverse, waiting for delay, then let off the brake to let it do it's own thing but it barely moved on it's own so I helped it gave a little pedal and it hesitated big time like it was engaging and then disengaging, no noticeable sounds, I stayed steady on the pedal as I backed up about 30ft and it slightly smoothed out with about 10ft left but it was a noticable chugging/hesitation.

I also noticed earlier in the day in reverse after the delay it would hesitate/chug if I got on the pedal quickly but if I eased into it it wouldn't hesitate. It feels almost kinda like a bumping when in reverse.

There was also a delay when putting it into drive and a decent flare from 2nd to 3rd.

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Re: 5r110 hesitating in reverse

It could be one or more solenoids getting sticky. How many miles on the ATF?

Thanks mark.

I've put 30k on it after it had a heated flush. I just recently drained 8 and refilled with 8 after I installed the gogo solenoid. Everything was fine after the solenoid, I've put about 600 miles on it or so. The delay has been coming and going for the last year but it never did what it did last night. It seemed like the trans had a hard time relearning the power from the hercules ficm tune.

Isn't the direct drive solenoid (gogo) responsible for reverse?

Thanks Mark.

Re: 5r110 hesitating in reverse

The direct AND reverse solenoids are used to create reverse. How much extra power do the tune make it idle?

Re: 5r110 hesitating in reverse

I have to agree. My father in laws 04 did the same thing about 6 months ago. Turned out to be a bad solenoid. It would take forever somtimes to engage drive or reverse and somtimes at low speeds would kick out of gear. I am no trans expert by any means but IIRC there was a solonoid that controlled all the other gear solenoids, that was the one he had to replace. He said it wasn't too complicated to do. If that helps any.

That's a good question. I have an email in to chris @ TSD maybe he can adjust something.

Ill update once progress is made either way.

Thanks Mark.

Re: 5r110 hesitating in reverse

That was a rhetorical question. It doesn't make ANY more power at idle.

It also did something weird when I came to a stop in traffic on the freeway. Came to a complete stop, then traffic moved up and when I gave it some pedal it was like it wasn't in gear, it took a second or two then it engaged and back to normal. It was strange. Dunno how I forgot to mention that.

Re: 5r110 hesitating in reverse

That's about what mine started doing before I welded the forward drive hub and the direct drive hub together.
