Default 96 Saturn SL2 with 129k...no reverse

My buddy has a 1996 Saturn SL2 4 door automatic with 129k miles and he has no reverse. All of his forward gears are fine as far as I know because he still drives it to work daily. I'm a new member to the forum and I recieved great help the other day on my Saturn, so I told my buddy that I would post this and try and get him some help. What could the problem be and how can he repair it?
Thanks guys!!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

perhaps check the selenoids (should be within 5,000-7,000 ohms IIRC) and/or the pressure switches on the valve body?

failing that, perhaps you need new Input/Output shaft nuts? also you could try PM'ing special forces.. he's the resident Saturn transaxle diagnoser AND he rebuilds the valve bodies very good as well.

Thats how mine acted when the transmission input nut came loose, no reverse and all forward gears.
