I have to park uphill... help!

I have a 99 Mustang V6, and I have a wether annoying problem: my reverse doesn't work!

It works okay like in the morning when it's been sitting all night I just start it up and I back out of the drive fine, but when I'm running around doing errands, when I try to back out of a parking space the reverse takes sometimes up to 10 minutes before it goes. Drive and everything else works perfectly fine, I never drop gears... any ideas? Much appreciated.

Re: I have to park uphill... help!

I'm guessing it's an automatic.
I'd get a transmission flush. If there are any particulates in the valve body it'll affect shifting as it blocks fluid flow. Another case would be to make sure that the linkage is properly adjusted. If you change gears quite a bit with the auto, the linkage will loosen a bit over time.
