THanks for the help Hristo and MBDoc!

"You could pull the tranny and replace the reverse piston seals and the reverse friction discs and be just fine. "

That is good info! Do u know the average cost for this?
Also, I take that back about it happening 20% of the time. It rarely happens, and it only happens when the car is fully warmed. It also only happens when I want to go faster than Idle speed. IE, I engage reverse, but want to go faster than a few MPH, so i hit the gas, and u can tell that REVERSE then engages fully...? Don't nkow if that makes sense.

BTW, Hristo, is the sound of noisy lifters.... or do they sound like a rattling? I get that from the engine and just can't figure it out! It makes me feel better knowing it's not the timing chain.

Thanks again for the info!!!!
