I have a 19876 Buick Regal Limited 3.8 engine. I have lost reverse could it just the linkage or could it something major. I have to move the shifter a little to get the reverse to work in the past.

If you had a problem with the shifter and now it got worse, then my guess is it very well might be the linkage. Did you get under the car to inspect?

No it is in 6 inches of snow and I don't have the luxury of being able to do that. I backed into a snow filled driveway the problem of living in a foreign country ( Maine).I Suspect that the snow under the vehicle may be the culprit. Thank you for the answer and confirming what I thought might be the problem I am going to have it looked at hopefully Monday.
