All gears work except reverse won't work. Check

Take the car to AutoZone, they will check your ECM for the code using a OBD II scanner that is causing the problem for free, once you have that code the problem can be diagnosed easier.

Hi i have a stearing problem the car has a screatching noise when reversing hard could this be the stearing fluid is required or is this a mechanical problem?

unfortunally that will be a machanical problem, olthough depend what you mean by reverseing hard!
you allways get a bit of a whine/screech when you reverse most cars as reverse gear mesh is flat and non sincro! unlike outher gears!

with the code, I'd lean to the solenoid, but there is a large nut inside the transmission that loosens on these and when it does, you'll lose reverse.

Jerks going into 3rd Gear

more than likely you will need a valve body rebuild. you are probably looking around $500+. don't let them try to sell you a transmission. you could search ebay and see if you can find a "rebuilt valve body" but make sure it is for a '00 to '02 SL2

I have a 2000 Saturn Sl, and I have no reverse. It seems to go forward fine, just no reverse......

I'm not a car Expert but I think you need this looked at by a mechanic,  our family car lost the primary drive gear,  When we took it to a mechanic we found that it needed a new transmission, We paid $3000+/- for a new transmission.  I hope you can resolve this,

You could try the reverse fix here:
Reverse fix for Saturn TAAT
Or if it turns out your valve body is bad, here is how to swap it:
Replacing the valve body of a Saturn TAAT Transaxle

DO NOT believe bad auto mechanics that tell you they need to swap your transmission!
