Hi, I just got an xe as a bit of a project. All gears work except reverse, i thought all it would need was a top up in trany fluid because it was low. After topping it up and running it through the gears no change :(
Any advice?
P.S its auto.
Thanks

one of my autos in my old XF lost reverse and on the way to a automatic trnasmission place it blew up, so be cautious and maybe change and flush the fluid......

No.
I opened it up found that the fluid was quite dark and there was the remains of a rubber band of some sort. I changed the fluid and google to find out what this rubber was, i believe it is the band that engages reverse.
So I was wondering if it would be cheaper to get it rebuild or change to a c4?
And whats the cost difference?
Thanks

That rubber seal would have come from the rear servo - which applies the rear band for reverse. It occurs from not adjusting the rear band during a service. Because the servo piston has to travel further to apply the band, it pops the seal & usually breaks the band in the process.... :(

If you remove the rear servo, you will find the band apply strut & the broken end of the band sitting on top.

Either way is going to be expensive.

The XD was the last Falcon to have a 6cyl C4 factory fitted -and then it was an option. So finding one now would be hard - and to fit it to an XE, you need the 6cyl C4 driveplate, cooler lines, T-Bar & linkage etc. And the box you will probably get will need a rebuild - being 32 years old.

Cheaper to find a good second hand XE - XF Borg Warner 40 or convert it to manual.
