What can be wrong with my truck transmission?


I would guess the torque convertor has failed and you need it replaced

The reverse is going faster than forward


do you mean you have four reverse gears and only one forward gear or do you mean your rpms aren't going up as well in forward as in reverse

My 98 ford explorer won't go in reverse... it will drive forward and go into lower gear but not reverse...is this gonna be a big tranny job????


I know this sounds stupid but will it back up if you put it in 4wd low? If yes its a transfer case problem. If no, they the transmission will need rebuilt. Also can you push the vehicle forward or backward in park?

1998 Ford Explorer XLT Front drivers side power seat will go forward, up and down but not back! Is there an override?


See if the slide rail is bent. We just picked one up in a wrecking yard, leather seat perfect condition from a '98 Explorer, it has the same problem. If you put it back too far, it gets stuck and won't go forward. Check it for a bend or a burr in the metal which can be filed. Otherwise, ??

Jumps forward when brakes are applied at intersections when stopping Doesn't happen all the time.


I don't know if this would be considered a solution or not but in 2006 Ford implemented a new transmission (6 speed automatic) and they have and still have a lot of problems. It is fixed (helped may be more appropriate) by a computer upgrade done by the dealership. MY wife has had nothing but problems out of her 2006 limited ford explorer. The whole computer system had to be replaced at 32,000 miles and then they charged us to upgrade the new computer they put into the car. It's almost comical at this point. The transmission problem has been solved for the most part on our vehichle but it took several ford computer updates. I hope this helps!

Awd 97 ford explorer grinding noise going forward not in reverse and not while rolling in neutral


I ran into this problem, and discovered that i had a faulty front shaft speed sensor. The grinding I had was that the transfer case clutch packs were trying to lock up and engage the front wheel drive. Replacesment of the sensor has not fully rectified the situation though, as it still does it intermittently. It seems to do it at low speed turns and on acceleration. Not sure if this is your problem or not, but it could be. A scan of the computer can tell you if it is the issue though.

Problem with ford explorer alarm imobiliser


You should have a switch under the dash and then just turn it to the off position. If you don't or it doesn't work (like mine) then, there is 2 fuses under the dash, put the key in the ignition and turn it forward, pull one of the fuses out and then start the car that should reset it. Then you should be able to put the fuse back. Sometimes if you put the fuse back before starting it the alarm will just continue to try and reset itself, but not start the car. If that doesn't work I have a mechanic who can pull the whole alarm out and when hes done it would look like nothing has ever been installed. Hes very good. I ended having him take my alarm out when I had the same incident happen after the 2nd time.
