      Pull the pain, drain and check the fluiid

      If it appears good with no burnt smell or metal contamination, rebuild or replace the valve body.

      Install new "O" rings on the reverse servo and install a new separator plate with bonded gaskets.

      Search on the forum for 5R55E rebuild to learn more

      My opinion in 198K is that I would get a miti vac and quarts of tranny fluid and look at it. If its burnt smelling and dark, I would replace a couple of quarts with each oil change till the fluid looks better, then do the pan and filter. Old tranny's with old fluid do not like to be shocked.

      Your transmission type will be the 5R55E.
