Hi Dieter,

There's another transmission question on this forum at the moment and the person is having the same trouble that you are - no Reverse gear.

What he's looking at is the possibility that the rear engine mounts have gone bad from age and exposure to oil vapors. This can let the transmission sag so that the shift linkage won't be able to push the transmission lever into the "R" position. Consequently, no back up.[B)]

Miscreant at large.
