Unhappy 95 S420--wont go into reverse

Greetings from San Antonio...

I am new to the forum...I have a 95 S420 it will not reverse. When I put it in reverse, depending on how level the ground is, it will slowly pull and occasionaly kick in roughly... If I am on totally even ground, it wont back up at all and we have to push it out..But if there is a hill, like coming out of the garage, it will just roll on out. My mechanic says it could be the reverse transmission pump...

That is a common problem & almost always results in major transmission repairs! The reverse clutch material wears out too quickly!
