What would cause my 09 Traverse will not move when put in reverse

the timing chain is located in front of the motor where the fan keeps the car cool, it not the timing chain becuase if that was the issue the motor would not run and may not even turn over, timing chain in the older cars where made with steel chain, now days its just rubber, and it works under the same purpose.

the plate in the transmission maybe broken, gear for the rear verse
broken, teeth maybe striped off, or the band in the transmission out of alinment or broken band, no one will know until some one takes it apart.,
you could remove the transmission pan inspect the linkage, bands, plates, check make sure theres is no metal pieces in the bottom of the transmission pan, than put new gasket and new transmission fluid in it, also put slick 50 or product that may help transmissions with alot of mileage on them to work until you can afford to fix the transmission.

Manual transmission

There is a trans pump seal between the tourque converter and the pump. I would degrease the entire engine (including the trans)first and put some oil dye in the trans to see if the leak is actually comming from there. It's possible but unlikely.

I have no fifth gear and no reverse in my 1997 4wd kia sportage

The shift linkage inside the transmission is bent or broken. From the shifter there is a ~10 inch shift rod that goes into the transmission which toggles a fork that selects one of three independent levers in the transmission. When you go into reverse it pushes the rod to the left and locks onto the rod which controls 5th gear and reverse. If the forks are damaged then it cant grab the knuckle of the rod and therefore it want engage the gear You will probably notice if you go back and forth from 1st to reverse a bunch of times you may even get it to drop in once and awhile. The fix requires removing the transmission from the car and taking it apart to access the inside linkage.

You best bet is to remove the transmission yourself as that is the bulk cost of repair (about $800.00), then take it into a transmission shop for a fix. You should be able to get it repaired for about 200 dollars.

My ford focus tdi 2003 cant select 1st,3rd or 5th gears.

Car is in limp in mode unless you have the tools to work on automatic transmission you will need to take it to a transmission shop. Of course you can check oil level but I suspect you have other issues.

Driving in 5th gear tach started jumping engine roaring, shifted to 4th mile later stop sign, shifted to neutral, shifted to 1st nothing, 2nd, nothing same 3rd, 4th, 5th, reverse, wouldnt move ,sounded...

when the clutch is not depressed, the transmission is fully locked to the engine, thus no movement between the engine and transmission should be felt. what did the clutch pedal feel like? what year is your vehicle? have you checked your trans oil lately? with your first sentence it sounds like the transmission is jumping teeth, causing the engine to freewheel and your car to jump.
        If you feel comfortable enough to take your transmission out, then drain it, disconnect all of your linkages and hoses, take out your starter, support it with a floorjack, disconnect any crossmembers now, then unbolt from the back of the engine, dont pull it yet, disconnect the four bolts holding your flywheel onto your engine from the front of the transmission, then roll your transmission straight back away from the engine. make sure your flywheel doesnt fall out ( it should weigh between 20-40 pounds for a manual transmission and be very sharp). 
once on a table or place you feel comfortable working on the transmission, slide your flywheel, clutch, and pressure plate assembly straight out of the front of the transmission. the friction matierial on a new clutch is very thin but if you see that your clutch is worn to the point that you cannot see the vent grooves or that the rivets are hitting your mating surface of your flywheel. if any of these is the problem then replace the clutch wheel and have your flywheel ground or replaced (watch out for asbestos dust off of the clutch, soak with water before dissasembling) (if need to replace your clutch, always remember what side is the rear and what is the front of the clutch (take pictures if need be) your pressure plate (the wheel with the springy fingers in the middle) (what i think is wrong) should be able to support your weight on the springs (180-200 pounds) with minimal give to the spring, if it gives alot then replace. also check to see if the bearing on the shaft, has play in it. this is the throw-out bearing (ironic when you need to throw it out) if it has play then replace and get a new one. for good measure inspect the magnet in your oil pan when you drain the transmission for excessive metal shavings, and if your feeling brave enough look at the gears (either through your opening in the oil pan or by taking apart the gearbox portion of your transmission) to check for broken gears, worn gears, anything other than shiny after cleaning with brak-kleen or other solvant. if you find damage here then message me again and i will walk you through taking the gearbox apart. 

Hope This Helps!

Wont go into 5th gear

I am going to assume this is a manual transmission, if it is 5th and reverse are on the same selector set, the only solution is to strip the transmission and check out whats broken.
