Hello, welcome. My name isXXXXX will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.

What happens when you try to select reverse, it just grinds?

reverse gear wont engage atall some of the forward gears will engage

Ok this issue is normally caused by a failing or weak pilot bearing which requires the gear box to be removed in order to replace this. It is normally a good idea to replace the clutch while the gear box is out.

could you give me a estimate of cost if possible

The labor time is about 5 hours and the parts are about 150 depending of course on where the work is performed.
