First thing to do is replace the spark plugs and spark plug wires. Next change the fuel filter and air filter. Make sure both battery cables are tight. If it is still acting up after you change these things then you will need to replace the oxygen sensor. Drive the car to your local auto parts store and borrow (for free) there OBD II scan tool. This tool hooks up underneath the drivers side steering wheel and it will obtain the trouble codes stored inside your vehicles computer. Open up a Haynes repair manual and look in the back of it where it shows what each trouble code is and match the code number you obtained from the scan tool to the number in the repair book. This will pinpoint the exact problem and save you time and money because you will be replacing ONLY the failed componant

Can not back up or even push it backwards in neutral running or not.

The right rear brake on my Granddaughters car was so worn that the pad jammed when turning backwards stopping any backwards motion. When going forward it did not jam and could be pushed or driven forward. Tell everyone that if you hear scraping noises when applying brakes to get them checked right away.

In turbo hydro 700 why would forward gears make the rear wheels go in reverse

Your differential is upside down. Ford model T's had the same problem. It was possible to mount the rear axle upside down which made the car go forward in reverse and backward in forward gears.

My reverse went out of my truck and I put it in neutral to push it backwards and its like I'm in drive andcan drive forward what can I do to fix it

If reverse is done and you can only go forward is it shifting out of first. If its not then you need the transmission rebuilt. That's what happened on my truck.

Loses pressure when driving forward and backwards. It won't go any faster than 25 miles per hour

Sounds your catatylic converter is clogged.You will need to have the exhuast pressure tested.Or the next time you drive it for a little while stop and look under at the converter to see if its cherry red.Also put your hand behind tail pipe and feel how much pressure is coming out at idle.

Sounds like a worn out put shaft. Its time for a transmission rebuild. Keep in mind that the stator inside of the Torque Converter is made out of plastic.
