First, is it a 2000 or a 1990 as you have both years listed?

So there was no reverse on the day the engine was installed and cranked, correct?

Or did it lose reverse a day, two days, several days later?

Please remember that I am not there and unless I have all the details and facts, I cannot give accurate answers

Hello, Ill assist you if I can. So you had an engine failure and had reverse gear prior and now the engine has been replaced and have only no reverse at all? It just revs in neutral? All other forward gears are ok? No warning lights are on or codes stored? Trans fluid level is full and correct and doesnt smell burnt?
