So I have never posted here but a lot of your posts have been very helpful to me. My 2004 xterra recently stopped going into reverse. All forward gears work great with no delay or slippage but the reverse won't engage. Any info is much appreciated!

It has 140000 miles. Fluid seems full and doesn't smell burnt. But I'm going to change it to see if that helps. I'll check the linkage

If you going to change the fluid drop the pan and see if the spring on the reverse solenoid rusted off easy fix.

So I dropped the pan and couldn't see any spring anywhere. I tested one solenoid and it sounds like its working but otherwise couldn't see anything broken

The valve body probable is blocked i would put a magnet in the pan change the fluid see what happens . Pulling the valve body is very difficult job.

It has a magnet in the pan and it had some fuzz on it. I put new fluid in it and gonna see what happens. If it doesn't work I'll probably take it to a trans mechanic
