well it's hard to read ALLCAPS it's like you're yelling at me. No problems with the motor. Everything starts and runs. You know in order to check the transmission oil, the motor must be running. You may have a transmission oil leak. Been noticing any red drips near your radiator, when you park on pavement?...because if you are low on transmission oil, could manifest itself in failure to engage reverse...check your transmission oil, the correct level will appear in the zone between the hash marks. If not this, the linkage to the transmission is wumpus and needs to be looked at, could be a bad bushing, could be something fell off, have someone scurry around on their back and look at the linkages for you.
