Default no reverse!!

Strangest thing happened yesterday - When I tried to back out of my driveway, reverse was gone! It was as if I were in neutral. The engine was revving freely and there was no change in sound or anything when shifting back and forth from R to N.

I drove a few miles and then it worked again. Today it seems to be working fine.

Has this happened to anyone? Do you have any idea what is/was wrong?

I'm a bit nervous after spending $2300 last spring getting the tranny rebuilt after losing overdrive.

warranty is expired on the rebuild. :(

I'll check the fluid color tonight. I would have noticed a leak when I changed the oil last week, so I was thinking it might be an electrical bug. Since all the other problems I have are the same problems everyone else has(other than shearing off O/D), I figure I'm not the first to see this happen.
