Hows the fluid level? That would be my first place to look.

What color is the fluid and how does it smell. Have someone put the transmission in drive with their foot on the brake and then check the level on the dipstick.

The chart from the FSM indicates the front clutch is slipping for reverse and the overdrive clutch is slipping for drive.
