Need help. This morning I was backing up down my driveway and heard a ping sound coming from my transmission. I then noticed I had no reverse. Now the tranny has all forward gears but it will not click into reverse. Does anyone know what this could be. I think the reverse syncro assembly is broken. Can any one help?

When you jacked it up and inspected all the linkage; what did you find?

Is your reverse lockout lifting? I recently had same symptom, my reverse lockout lock bolt had loosened up and the rod pulled out of the lockout mechanism. 

I made a video to show it. Easy fix. Hope it works for you.
