Q: Reverse gear not working

asked by on

We have a 1990 chevy truck and the reverse went out on it and was stuck in high gear. We have changed the transmission fluid and filter which seemed to help in the sense that it can be shifted easily into all gears now where before it would skip gears or be stuck in high gear. Now that we did that and tried putting it in reverse we can hear it shift into gear and it acts like its trying to back up but does not do anything.
My car has an automatic transmission.
