Exclamation She wont go into Reverse and O/D light is blinking

I have a 97 explorer xl 4.0 SOHC 4 door 4x4 automatic with 95,000. Since 2 days ago it would go into reverse. Also when i try to put in reverse the O/D light Blinks and keeps blinking. The transmission fluid is good and the reverse lights also come on. It also drives well other wise (no shaking or problems shifting up.)
When i put it in reverse it slightly rev's up like it normally would but even with slight gas it wont go in.

Please have somewhat good news for me
thanks for helping
