If auto-matic then its the forward band or pump is not working due to sump filter clogged up or the bands have burnt out or the pump carnt get oil..
IF its Manual then its the selector shafts broken which would be 1000 to1 ..
So take its a Auto-matic so get it looked at or remove the auto sump on the g/box and remove the filter and if clean its a auto repair shop job . if dirty then wash in petrol and refit and refill with new fluid ,,start and test if ok then you have done good IF not then its a bigger job. Sorry mate

1998 Camry Reverse noises

this really sounds like a broken motor mount / trans mount. An easy way to check is have someone sit in the car and shift into reverse, then to neutral, then to drive. Have your "assistant" do this repeatedly with the hood up, parking brake ON and foot FIRMLY applying the brakes while you watch the motor move. if you can see a big difference in "jump" between reverse and drive, that is a bad mount. The motor will lift or "jump" higher on the broken mount side. if your really not sure then try a gentle power brake in each direction.

1998 toyota camry won't reverse and hesitating in drive

This could be a fault with the shift valve, hopefully just requiring cleaning. This is accessible with the trans pan removed, best done on a hoist.
