It takes twice the clutch pressure to engage reverse as the forward clutch. Likely the charge pump is failing , driven by the torque convertor. Run pressure test on forward and reverse, and if reverse does not increase, either reverse clutch seals are leaking or the charge pump is going out. Either way, transmission has to be removed and disassembled. Forward clutch pressure will be around 180 to 200 and reverse will be 360 or more.

No, pump is behind the torque convertor and is sold only as new
