We checked and that part is fine. It just locked me out of reverse...

If it were me, I would concentrate on that area since it's either the shifter or the linkage. Unless the trans has been giving you some kind of indication before you lost reverse then I seriously doubt it's the trans itself.

Yes. Everything was working great. I drove to store. Parked. Was in for ten minutes. Went to start car and back out and I was locked out of reverse. Maybe reverse takes fluid to help it not get stuck?

Nope ... from what I see there is a mechanism outside the trans that pulls that linkage out. I don't know where you live but in some snowy area's that linkage may have hit something ... donno, just my guess . But as I said earlier ... I seriously doubt there's anything wrong with your transmission
