I would have the transmission check if you plan on keeping the car a long time. The lucas oil is an additive for the oil. The additive is making the fluid a little heavier and tricking the soleniods or clutch and bands with a different pressures.
This is a temporary fix. The transmission over time is going to start to slip more and more.

Low fluid can cause slipping. (depends upon how low) Most manufacturers post "safe" tow speeds. These are generally ignored. (not good). I recommend towing with driveshafts removed and where driveshaft has a "slip yoke" you install a yoke from a scrapyard and wire it to the tailshaft so it stays in place (keeps oil in and dirt out) Although you can't just detach the tow-bar and drive, it eliminates any possibility of trans damage, since the transmission cannot turn. (most use oil from pump to keep gearsets cool...when towing, pump is not pumping and over time and distance it can damage trans internals.)
Hope your problem is just low fluid and not a rebuild...keep in mind what I said though.

SOURCE: no reverse gear - auto trans
I have the same problem on my 96 Pathfinder. I just spoke with a mechanic who said this is most often due to a knicked seal in the rear part of the transmission. The leak results in pressure loss, making the system reluctant to shift into reverse. He said the fix is replacing the seal. The part lists at approx $200 Canadian ($190 USD), but unfortunately it takes lots of labor. The whole transmission needs to be removed and taken apart to replace the seal. The total bill is esitmated at $1500 Canadian. Youch. I'm not sure if I'll proceed with the repair, given the age of the vehicle.
