Transmission

My Saturn SW 1998 Slams into reverse gear. If I wait a few seconds with my brake on it will go into gear without slamming. Is may transmission getting ready to go?

How many miles on your car? Any prior history of transmission problems? Has the fluid ever been changed? (Don’t go change it yet)

I have 156,000 miles with no problems. The fluid was changed several months ago
