When dealing with an automatic tranny, if you lose reverse then the tranny is pretty much done with for the most part. Make sure your tranny fluids are at the correct levels and the color of the tranny fluid. It should be red. If it's brownish or blackish or smells burned then it's goin out. Find an Aamco Transmission in the area. I am pretty sure they will run a free diagnostic for you so you know exactly what it is.

I dealt with the same thing on my 1998 S10 pickup.

89 sidekick automatic trans slow to engage in reverse on first start of the day.

the 3L30 automatic, its old fashioned Hyramatic,
it has no TCM brain, like the 4 speed.
the tests are all easy.
the Reverse stall tests fails in reverse only cold
this is the 2nd test in the fsm.
  1. levels good per steps in operators guide, lost that?
  2. do the full service, the filter or screen,. is clogged. (above pan)
  3. is the ATF fluid pink, red or black>? does it smell sweet or burned socks.?
  4. if all that is done, the FSM directs you to do the line pressure test.
  5. if the Line pressure is out of spec. in reverse , the tranny is bad.

if 5 fails. live with it or fix it, it will never get better. as pressure drops
more the 1 gear will slip.
