MY LS HAS JUST LOST REVERSE GEAR, BUT ALL OTHER GEARS ARE RUNNING FINE. I THERE A SIMPLE FIX FOR THIS OR SOMETHING I SHOULD TRY? OR AM I IN NEED OF A TRANSMISSION?

My reverse over night slipped but worked and then the next day was gone. There were no warnings. All other gears work fine

This is a Front wheel drive automatic Transmission, does that still the answer for the question? And if so would a Transmission Flush and fill with New filter work?

No, it will not. Beyond a flush. It has an internal failure and will have to be removed, evaluated and most likely re built.
