    Is it fitted with a reverse lockout solenoid, on the external top rear left side of the box, immediately next to the shift lever cover. (Don't confuse it with the speed sensor, which is below it about half way down the side of the rear extension) It's held in with one bolt. If there is any fault with the solenoid, it could be jamming or sticking and preventing reverse from fully selecting. Try removing the solenoid, then seeing if the gear will select more fully. Test the solenolid to see if it is moving freely for the full distance that it should.

    And I don't give a flying fark what you think, as long as the person who needs help gets the help they need, fark me I didn't think this was a competition its about giving someone a helping hand, who cares if I only know 80%, If you don't like it read on.

    I and plenty of others on here, aren't going to show any appreciation to wanna be's who copy other forum members posts, and then try to pass the information off as their own
    Stick to copying & pasting info from your Google searches and posting YouTube videos

    To the OP
    I'd look at the advice offered by Calaber in the link provided, then take it from there
