My car has a manual transmission.
Hi there. The gears 3rd and 4th are both on the main shaft inside the transmission. Those gears have a synchronizer that connects the gears together. The reverse gear does not have a synchronizer to make the gear work. It sounds like that the reverse gear has chipped a tooth and caused the main shaft gears to grind out the synchronizer. I recommend seeking out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to observe the issue with your transmission.
