There can be several things that will an automatic transmission not to work properly. The most common cause is a lack of transmission fluid. Broken shifting linkage can also cause the problem.

Letting the fluids get too low (leak?), switching repeatedly from drive to reverse while the wheels are turning (did the van get stuck?), wear and tear from high miles, towing/pulling something too heavy, or not having the fluids changed every once in a while are all possible reasons an automatic transmission could burn up.

Most likely the reverse band (in an automatic) - Also note that some of these cars used an anti-fill/drain-back valve in the valve body, this can cause a delay in how long it takes for reverse or low to start working.

If this is an automatic transmission, more than likely the transmission is on it's way to the junkyard. Usually failing transmissions lose reverse first, then the higher forward gears - last will be the lowest forward gears.

Assume it's an automatic. You probably have a bad valve-body or clutch pack in the transmission.

the only problem that you can repair yourself would be with the linkage. but if all other gears work except reverse then the problem is probably internal and should be inspected by a professional. it makes a big difference if the trans. is manual or automatic also.

by drinking to alot of fluids

because salt can hold fluids more than just the body can.

possible problems: broken engine mounts cause the engine to jerk, or tranmission fluid needs change, and possibly bad transmission.
