Why does my 1995 Volvo transmission stop going into gear after it's hot?

1) How's your fluid level?

2) When did you last replace your filter?

3) When it shifted, did it go trough all the gears as you accelerate or did it just stay on one gear and never shifted?

4) How's reverse, does it slip out too after 2 - 3 min?

5) As you first able to shift into gear, you can drive it for 2 to 3 mintues and it just suddenly slip out of gear?

.... could be a number of different things. Maybe even burnt out clutche(s) inside your transmission

My reverse transmission stop working suddenly this morning when I started the car. All the other forward gear positions work. When I engage the automatic transmission to reverse and accelerate i just hear...

OK, I would first check the fluid level in the transmission to verify that it's full or topped off.

Usually transmission fluid and filter changes will not correct physical problems with the solenoid not going into reverse, and get rid of strange noises.

Changing the fluid is more like a preventative measure against malfunctions, but once damage is done it's probably permanent.

You probably are looking at a transmission rebuild in this case, unfortunately.

Oil pump quits when transmission kicks down or heavy acceleration

I have only seen this happen once in my entire it happens it was to one of my own cars (also a chrysler product) Normally if asked I'd say that oil pumps don't fail. BUT, it is possible that the drive gear on the pump has become just loose enough on the shaft that when pumping hard, it will spin slower and result in the conditions you mentioned. To test it you need to actually take the pump apart and put the shaft in a vise and try to turn the gear with a pair of waterpump pliers
Bottom line is: change the pump.
