04 vue trans

04 vue, v6 Honda motor. Has hondamatic trans, MJ8. It has no reverse but all forward gears work. I see odyssey trans failures are fairly common so odyssey trans are kinda high priced. Used are 700-1000$. Rebuilds are $2200? The Saturn trans are $200 or so used. Is it a supply/demand issue? Does the accord v6 use similar trans? Don’t really want to overhaul trans but am curious to what exactly is broke. Any ideas?

Can you find someone to read the transmission codes?

Maybe it’s just a bad reverse solenoid.

It could also be the valve body. It is a common problem if there’ no reverse yet other gears are working fine.
