Having trouble going into reverse.

I have a 1988 560 SEL and it is having problems going into reverse. I put in it and it acts like it is slipping and once it does go it jerks to back up. I have had the fluids checked but I am afraid it might be something more serious. Any ideas?

Transmission probably needs to get re-done...

Doesn't sound good to me either...
