Question about Cars & Trucks
Transmission shops will sell you a rebuilt or rebuilt yours for enough money to take a vacation!
Going on your symptoms alone, sound like may be you have only some bent shift linkage, some worn shift parts, or maybe even some broken motor mounts!
If you can, raise the car up in the air and maybe unhook the shift linkage off the transmission, and see if the metal piece that sticks out of the transmission that the shift linkage attaches to is free and clear, and then see if the linkage will make that shifting lever go all the way from one end of range to the other.
You would need someone to move the lever inside the car while you looked underneath.
Bent linkage, or maybe missing nylon bushings somewhere in the linkage, or stretched cables if it is cable shifted, or failed motor mounts which have caused to engine or transmission to be in a position other that factory-produced could be a cause of this.

Has your fuel economy dropped? It may not have, what it sounds like to me is a low rpm miss. You could have a dirty injector or injectors, hard to tell unless hooked up to engine analyzer

I have a 1998 and I just confronted the same problem. It seems to take like 1 gear in reserve and like 2 gear in 1 gear. Any thoughts? I don't really it should be the transmission since it still works going forward in 2 different gears. Thanks.

It will soon. The loss os reverse is the first sign that something internal is wrong and other failures will soon follow. It needs to be taken to a local, trusted transmission shop or get one from a local salvage yard with a warranty. If you wish to do this yourself and need instructions, let me know.

Sounds like the transmission linkage is in need of repair. It's not a very expensive repair, but should be done by a qualified mechanic.

Your motor mounts are either worn out or broken causing you to feel the vibration from the engine. Another possibility is that your exhaust pipe is touching the body somewhere.
