Reverse won't work on my 1994 GMC Surburban 4x4. Only 90K miles, truck is in great shape otherwise. All other gears work fine. Tranny fluid looks and smell fine, it was changed in the last 12K miles.

If you have no reverse, more than likely, you have either a stripped or broken sunshell, assuming you have the 4L60E transmission. Are you absolutely sure you have all forward gears? Another indication of the sunshell being defective, will be no engine braking in manual second.

My 1999 Yucon is not shifting in to reverse now....

You probably have the same problem i just repaired on my surburban. It had 190000 and I lost reverse also. so you may have a reverse sun shell problem. This was common on the 4l60e transmission and when the part wears out you have to have the transmission rebuilt or replaced with a Re-manufactured transmission. Without more information then this is what I can offer.

Have a 1998 surburban 4x4 4L60E trans high r.p.m from stop to change into gear want move i reverse can it be in valve body oil flow and pressure?

The late shifting could be a control problem but the no reverse is not. These trans had a habit of stripping out the reverse sun shell, the metal from it may have gotten into the valve body causing the late shifting, but it really does not matter. If you have forward movement, but no reverse it has to come out. Sorry dude. You need a trans.
