Hi, it sounds like you have an internal problem with the trans. Something has most likely broken or worn to the point that the "gate" is no longer there. There are blocker rings that break off, or wear out. If you power shift alot it may have broken or worn enough that it is skipping over and trying to go to reverse. Let me know if i can help you further. thanks,Eric
