1995 Buick Lesabre No Reverse

1995 Buick Lesabre. Work done to repair = fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel strainer, oxygen sensors, and two injectors. Question: While doing a three pt turn reverse stopped working.

I took the pan off, also filter. 3 aluminum tubes with one pulled out of the tranny. This aluminum pipe has a rubber hose connected to it that goes up inside the tranny.

Could this be the reason why there is no reverse? I would be able to figure this out possibly with a picture of a transmission but cannot find any pictures. Thanks

This pipe/hose is the final drive lube pipe. It supplies transmission oil to the final drive assembly.

If this were out for any period of time, it would cause the final drive to burn up. It is not the problem of no reverse.

That is most likely a band problem internal to the transmission.
