Let me know so we can continue,thanks Pete
O.k.,this usually points to an internal mechanical fault with a clutch or band that may not be releasing in the transmission.Unfortunately this doesnt sound like a solenoid or valve body fault here.Make sure that the shifter cable is o.k. and that you are actually seeing it shift into reverse and neutral.If this is o.k. unfortunately the transmission usually has to be removed for inspection which involves having it taken apart to pinpoint the cause in it.This is best done by a transmission repair facility that has experience in this model here as well as the correct tools.Usually all bands and clutches are released in neutral and something internally is not releasing/operating properly to allow neutral and reverse operation.
