Question Transmission - no reverse

Last week when I started the car 1983 LeSabre (79000 actual miles) and I put it in reverse and a weird noise started - I immediately shut off the engine. I again started the car and no noise this time but I have no reverse! I only have first gear - won't shift into second. Hadn't had any previous problem shifting. Do I have a linkage problem or need a major overhaul. If so is a rebuilt tranny the only option?

Check your fluid level and condition. When was the last time the transmission fluid and filter were serviced?

Sounds like internal failure of the trans...rebuild time.
