Question about Cars & Trucks
The reverse just quit after driving it one day there was no bang to indicate a band breaking and the fluid is at proper level and in good condition
It is entirely possible to suddenly lose reverse like this if a shift solenoid or shift valve fails.
I'd expect though that there would be a trouble code showing on the dash. Some cars do this by blinking the O/D indicator light, so check that the Check Engine and O/D dash warning lamps all work by observing them when the ignition is first turned on and in those few seconds when you hit the starter.

Changing the fluid will never harm your trans unless you do not fill it back up.
Reverse is all hydrolic. There is no electrical that could cause it. If you have park and forward, you don't have a lincage problem.
As much as I feel for you, (I satarted rebuilding transmissions in the 80's) you will have to get it rebuilt.

I would begin by replacing the filter if its not new, 2 possibility of issue, faulty shifting module or defective transmission rebuilt. just because it has been rebuilt does not mean the individual work on it did a good job. the less cost effective way is to locate used modulator from ebay or junk yard, if that does not rectified the issue than more likely it will be the tranny. the bad part is that I dont know of a company offer a bench test for the tranny modulator.
