So are you speculating that the oil pump in the tranny is busted ? If thats the case then all gear shifts should be affected not just reverse.

OP (original poster), please begin making enquiries for a rebuilt valve body or tranny, and a good used tranny, plus labour and time required. Call a few places and get a baseline. Also check the pricing for a full valve body overhaul with one solenoid changed, or just a valve body removal, general cleanup and reinstallation with one or two solenoids changed. I will try to get you some info in parallel need to check that out for my tranny too.
