Startup reverse stall?
Well not really a stall but i noticed that if i start up my jeep from a rest, then quickly put it in reverse and try to backup it just revs the engine and no movement for about 20 seconds after startup. If i do the same thing but let it sit for a about 30 seconds everything is fine.
I seems like there is a lack of pressure in the tranny or torque converter on startup and it needs to build before moving. But this is only in reverse.
My jeep used to stall out after stops and randomly like many other wks but i took a master jeep mechanics advise and added half a qt of trans fluid and its been gone ever since (knock on wood) he said that WKs tend to be low on pressure in the trans making them stall and such.
Anyone else have this reverse issue?
