If you read the First Post in this thread, you will learn a wealth if information on this issue. You will learn -- if you follow the links provided -- about the dozen different fluid types for the various transmission models used. You will learn that the failure mode has multiple manifestations. You will learn that the Production Date of your car is important in determing which problem you have.

With the scant information you provided, I'm going to guess that you have a GM5L40E transmission with a solenoid that is hanging partially activated. The result is that the fluid that is supposed to be moving through the system is insufficient to properly propel your car. If you wait long enough, it'll stop going backwards at all.

If you have replaced the transmission fluid, AND the wrong fliud was used, this can cause your problem too.
