am a female that knows nothing about this but keep getting different
diagnosis from people.  One mechanic said its the trans sensors, another
says my car does not have them.  Please help

you're tranny may be done for , take it to a tranny shop and have them check it out , it looks like it's in good condition but you'll have to decide if you want to spend the $$ on a rebuilt trans for a 28 year old car

If it just won't move in reverse, it might just be the trans fluid is low. Check fluid level and condition. If it's a mechanical problem, it could just be the reverse clutch or the control solenoid.
