Question about 2001 Renault Sportwagon
Sorry to say this but your gearbox is stuffed. When one of the gearsets gets permanenty switched on ie jammed due to a malfunction you end up with some strange results one of which is only having reverse.
It would be wise to drain the oil from the transmission and have a look at the oil and see what you see.
The oil should be a clear red. If it looks black, or like metallic paint when you swirl it it has a problem. In a worse case it has bits in and it definitly needs replacing.
To fill it back up with oil replace the drain plug and fill back up with 3.5 litres of Type D oil
