You may have a broken direct drive drum or another internal problem that is preventing the forward clutch packs from being engaged. There might be a service code stored in the computer relating to the problem but if the problem is mechanical in nature it often won't set a code of any kind. I believe you have a 4L60E transmission in this vehicle and usually when I see this type of problem the transmission needs to come out and be repaired. Hope this helps a bit!

I have a 1996 chevy lumina sedan with no reverse. Other than replacing the tranny is there any other possible solutions.

It is possible that your gear indicator is not lined up with the actual transmission. Try the lever in each position to see where each gear really is. You may just be off a notch. If so, you were probably driving around with only 3 out of your 4 forward gears. Good luck
