My 2000 ford Windstar 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

Suspect fault in Reverse clutch possible piston seal failure

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.
