Well since u just got it rebuilt they might of did something wrong rebuilding it. but do u not have reverse at all? i used to have a 700r tranny and went threw 5 within a year if u was going to put a new tranny in it or a rebuilt one i would go with the turbo 350 or just the 400 they wont have the overdrive in it so u might not get as good gas mileage but all the money u will end up putting in the tranny it would just be better to put a different one in it. thats wat i did about 6 months ago i put a turbo 350 in my 1989 chevy 1500 with a 350 in it and its works fine. but when you put it in reverse does it just rev. up or does it move a little bc i had a problem just like that but it would move still just not very much

My 1991 735il bmw will not reverse, what can i do to solve this problem

You will more than likely need to remove the transmission from the car and have it rebuilt. Since this is a guess (based on 40 years) on my part have it taken to a transmission repair shop bob and have them confirm the guess is right, i'm sure it is.

700r4 transmission won't shift out of low gear and reverse is slipping

Take it to a shop where they can change the transmission fluid and filter and also have them do a good flush of the transmission with a special solvent they use. If this doesn't help it may be time for a rebuilt transmission.

My 1991 Mercury Grand Marquis will not go into reverse and the over drive does not work either what does that mean?

It sounds like your transmission need to be serviced,rebuilt or replaced.
Smell your fluid to see if it smells nasty and burned.
You can try to change the fluid and change the filter,if you do and it remains the same you need transmission service.
