Hi there, I've heard of later versions of Mazda - Ford utes with failures of the 5th- reverse selector ring (internal to the gearbox) which results in no 5th & reverse. If you still have 5th, but no reverse, I'll suggest you have a similar issue but with the capacity to engage 5th. It could also be the selector fork.Whichever way, it will entail a stripdown & inspection of the gearbox, probably with a full recondition in mind..Sorry the news couldn't be better!CheersScott
