Check your fluid level and condition. You may need a tranny shop to check it out. Could be a sticky solenoid or a piston seal that leaks until it gets enough pressure.

put it in neutral, then turn on your 4 wheel drive. then put it in reverse. if it still does not want to go into reverse then your linkage to tranny slipped out. easy fix if you know what your doing.
