Question about 1994 Ford Explorer Limited

Linkage for transmission

We just replaced the transmission on 94 ford explorer and the linkage is too short. The parking gear doesn't work. How difficult is it to add extra linkage?

Thanks

Why don't you start by getting the correct linkage. Maybe the tranny you replace is not exactly the same one. No difficult to replace, some of them have adjustments so maybe you might be able to get away with it, by adjusting it properly. Ensure the tranny is in the park position when adjusting, if properly adjusted, all the other gear shift should fall in place.

1991 Ford F150 won't shift into park or reverse. Will go into neutral and drive, and the linkage at the transmission moves ok


The linkage may be out of adjustment preventing the shifter from moving into reverse or park.
One way to test this is to disconnect the linkage and manually move the lever on the transmision making sure that it can be set into park. Also try moving the lever counting each click from park to low gear to make sure it is clicking into each gear. If this works then the linkage is probably out of adjustment.
On the link cable there is typically a bolt in an oval shaped metal near the transmission shift lever.
1)Detach the shift cable from the transmission shift lever
2)Put the transmision shift lever in the park position, and also the shifter in the cab
3)Loosen the adjustment bolt
4)Reattach the cable to the lever
5)Tighten the adjustment bolt in place
6)Confirm that you can shift through all of the gears
Hope this helps

I have a 1997 Ford explorer, it won't go in park


The shift linkage has come off ether at the base of the steering column or at the transmission. If all is in tack then you might have to drop the trans. pan and look at the linkage in there.

When i try to put it in park it takes it at times. i have to start it on neutral at times. it feels to smooth when i try to sift the gear.


Two possible causes could be a bad neutral safety switch (enables the vehicle to start in only Park or Neutral) or the transmission linkage may need adjusting. If you feel significant "play" in the gear shift (from what you described, it appears to have a lot of play) the linkage will need to be adjusted to get the gear shift to "lock in" to the individual gears instead of sliding.

I have 91 ford explorer and the transmission was not slipping. I parked it one day and it no longer shifts into gear. This is an automatic. Could the drive shaft be out or does this sound like a shift...


First thing check your fluid level, its low enough it won't go into gear and if its full, then check your shift linkage, it should be cable and it may have broke and last if the cable and fluid are good, check the shifter column thats attached to the steering column if its loose or worn out it could prevent it from going into gear.

Stuck in neutral


sounds like the transmition gear shift cable is streched out or the plastic coating around it may have broke. but first go under the truck and see if there is any thing wrong with the transmission linkage. this is located on the drivers side and will have a cable hooked to it( the cable is the shift cable). from the linkage you should be able to manualy put the truck in to park if you cant i would recomend taking it to a transmission shop.

98 ford explorer will drive but you put in in reverse will not go


It is possible that the shift linkage is out of adjustment and is going into neutral and not making it to Reverse, try moving the gear selector slowly from park, through reverse to Neutral, and see if it will go into reverse somwhere in between. If this does not work ,you may have Reverse gear failure, a common problem with explorer/ranger transmissions. unfortunatly it requires rebuilding the transmission
