Sounds like your tranny is getting hot, check your tranny fluid level, if its ok, your fluid and filter might have to be changed. You also have to make sure that the cooling lines to radiator are not plugged causing your tranny to overheat.

Sorry, don't have an answer for you...just wondering if you have found a solution to your problem? I seem to have the same problem, backs out of garage, backs up in driveway, goes thru all gears perfectly....then no reverse for the rest of the day. Any solution you may have come across would be greatly appreciated.
