The reverse in the automatic tranny on the Safari van is getting weak,most estimates were around 18-2400$, 90 day warranty.Found a good rebuilder by word of mouth who wil R+R+R for 1250$. Needs 2 days and gives a 1 yr. warranty.Works out of town so for sure his overhead is lower.He's getting the job today.Hope it all turns out. Dan in AB.

You can't go backwards and my honey's brother our mine left my house the other day only to call a few minutes later and say he was on his way back. literaly. Transmission went out and he he had to back up about 7 miles back to our house.
You might be a redneck if you have to drive to your brothers house..... backwards. hahahaha.

Our 96 windstar was getting lazy about going into gear so i took it to the guy who plugged in an analysis puter & estimated $1500. He had it for a week, he had a free loaner and it came to $1700 including a kit to reduce the factory-designed 300 pound pressure surge on the clutch. Works good since. :)

Before I would pay that much for a transmission overhaul I would stick my foot out the door and push it backwards.

You know a honda civic will go 65 on a level road with a 14-horse engine and snowmobile clutch? And looks street-legal like it always did. Now if it just had reverse. :)

Figger out where you are going to need to back up ahead of time.Have a bungie cord and hook it to something back at where you wana backstop.keep the other end tied to your Honda. that's all there is to that.
