Default C4

Hey guys, i have a c-4 trans in my jeep and all the gears work great in forward and shifts good and hard, but reverse doesn't seem to do anyhting. It will sound like it shifts in and bog down when i shift into reverse, but it goes really really slow and then it won't go anywhere. I have checked and double checked fluid levels, and they are good. I talked with a tranny guy today and he said the reverse band is a big culprit on these things. Also, he mentioned about a rear o-ring on a panel. Anyone know much about these, and how hard something like that is to fix? Is this something a normal person with good mechanical skills shuold be able to fix?

I have scattered a couple of ford trannys in my day. yes your reverse band went bye bye. secondly the only reason your still going forward is the one way clutch in the back of the trans. once you tear up the innereds any further it won't move at all. I suggest a rebuild now before you ruin the case if you haven't already.
