If its cold, reverse wont kick in. But all forward gears work 99% perfect. If its warm reverse only grabs after about 3 seconds.. I put some lucas tranny stuff in it and it hasn't helped. Not sure if its a sensor/module or something like that or if I need a whole trans.. please help

Check for bad solenoids/ wires, possibly valve sticking in the valve body, or linkage out of adjustment. Those are problems I have run into with many " missing gear" issues.

I had the same issues with my 85 Fleetwood...just started getting worse until the tranny gave up & needed a rebuild. As far as I know your 89 has the same trans it should be the 200 4r
