Default Transmission Question

I have a 2000 Ranger with 87000 miles 3.0 L Auto 4speed. Twice now I have had trouble going into reverse. I will put the truck in reverse and it will not engage. Is this the torque converter? I have checked fluid and after a few minutes at idle it warms up and the fluid is in the Do Not Add part of the transmission dipstick. Any help is appreciated.

for one you have to run the car for like 15 minutes to warm the tranny up, you should drive around for a bit, its possible you need a tranny flush or something. thats plenty of miles for the tranny filter to get gummed up.

most likely not a tc problem. those are made known by not shifting into o/d, and similar problems.

google those and see if either sounds right. the former is probably more relevant.
