PONTIAC GRAND PRIX TRANSMISSION PROBLEM

1992 Pontiac Grand Prix • 85,000 miles

My daughter came home with her '92 Grand Prix 3.1, w/3 automatic speed transmission tonight complaining that it wouldn't go into reverse at school when she went to leave. I checked it out and the tranny fluid is a pint low but otherwise clean and works fine in all forward gears but sure enough, reverse acts a bit as a neutral. You can feel it kick into reverse and trying, the reverse backup lights come on, but it acts likes like something slipping in the reverse gear. I guess if it's in the transmission, I would hope they could just get in there and replace a reverse gear component easy enough. Anyone have any experience on that?
