SOURCE: car won't move in reverse gear

i think those trannys are built like a manual on gear shafts rather than a planetary system. I would suspect the spur gear ...

Most likely an internal gearbox problem, but I would first check the shift linkage at the gearbox end, see if you can disconnect it and change out of reverse from there.

SOURCE: instant NO REVERSE, Chev 700R4 tranny.

You blow out the planatarys in Reverse,having fun. Now you can pull the unit and rebuild it. You should have to do it yourself,to learn what damage you did. I mean rebuild it yourself.

If it goes forward with no problems and just won't go in reverse your tranny sounds like it's going bad. Also check fluid levels

2000 jeep grand cherokee won't move in drive. I went to proceed from a stop sign and it rolled back like it was in neutral. Reverse is fine.

i would start by checking the linkage and make sure it is engaging, put the vehicle on jacks and have someone shift it and make sure it is going into gear if not adjust as needed.

1995 dodge caravan will not back up goes forward

I'm guessing it's a automatic. It is probably a transmission problem. Check your transmission fluid level. It might be leaking. If it's low just refill it and you will be good to go. keep an eye on the level. You will kill your transmission if you let it run with low fluid for too long.

Wont go in reverse but will go forward...

That is the way automatic transmissions usually die when they go slowly :( The reverse idler gear lets go, but the rest of the transmission is not very far behind. I've seen them go a while after reverse gave way, but not very long, usually the whole transmission will pile up pretty soon after. I'd look into getting that tranny rebuilt/replaced before it leaves you stranded and the tow call adds to the bill. The one thing i hate about automatics is the fact that, unlike manuals, they work just great one minute, and the next minute, they just quit working all together. Before anything else, just check your transmission fluid level with the motor running, transmission in neutral, parking brake set, but in your case, because it goes forward, the level is probably ok, the tranny probably has internal problems...

Vehicle suddenly doesn't move in reverse. Moves

Good chances are the transmission gave up on you. Check the fluid level, and if it's good, let a transmission repair shop take a look at it.
