I cannot reverse!!

That only occurs when the engine/trans is hot after driving for a while, if its cooled down/or local driving its fine.

D, 2 and 1 (all forward gears) are fine but when you select reverse, there is nothing like being in netural! What could be going on?

Have you checked your tranny fluid? If the fluid is full take it to a transmission specialist to determine the problem.

sounds like it's a little more serious then a fluid problem but a trans cooler never hurts

Definately add the cooler. It will increase the life of the transmission.

unless you drive like a granny(and i bet there aren't a lot of grannies on this forum), fit the cooler. something i noticed in another thread about ADLD cables and data logs is that almost everybody trying this is getting an auto over temp flag comming up. i'd suggest that the standard trans cooler in radiator setup is a poor design. fitting an extra cooler certainly won't hurt the tranny, might hurt the wallet a little but it's and extra insurance policy for your box
