Unhappy Will not do anything in reverse!! Help!!

Hey guys. I have a 2002 PT Cruiser. So yesterday I went to go in reverse in the car and it shifted into reverse but it won't go anywhere. Everything else works perfect on it unless I try reverse. I am trying to see if anyone can help me figure out what the problem is before I go and spend a butt load of money. Thanks

It does absolutely nothing. No noises or anything. We can drive it all over the place in forward but backwards it just sits there.

Question Re: Will not do anything in reverse!! Help!!

Whe the transmission is in DRIVE,it doesnt slip,and the shifts all feel smooth....This only happens when in REVERSE,right?

Reverse used to (1960's Torqueflites and whatever's in our CTD) take lots more pressure to engage reverse.

Put it in neutral, rev it up, let rpms drop to a reasonable level; then select reverse.
