Default 98 Ranger 3.0L auto trans with no reverse

98 ranger xlt 3.0L with automatic transmission with no reverse now. Runs fine in forward gears so far, but for how long? Is there a way to tell which needs to be replaced ie valve body or reverse bad ? 174,000 miles and has run without a problem. Love this truck
