1998 Toyota Camry will...

1998 Toyota Camry will only shift into drive or park. No reverse or neutral.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you noticed any leaking?

No leaking of transmission fluid. Car is actually drivable, but only forward.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Camry yourself? What have you tried so far?

Have no mechanical skills. Just trying to find out if it is a linkage or transmission issue and where best to take it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, that's it unless mechanic has a question or two.
