Questions about my 1976 Impala

Whenever I put the car into reverse gear the transmission is making a noise similar to the predator. The car is also having trouble with using the reverse gear as well. To get reverse to engage I have to almost have the gas petal on the floor board. When I check the transmission fluid, I was about a quart and a half low, but after topping of the noise was still there. The only thing that change was that I no longer had to put as much of the gas petal down to get reverse to engage. So, is my transmission going out?

Welcome to the Team M'Lord!

Yes it is. Time for a rebuild or an upgrade depending upon what tranny you have.
