Check  transmission fluid level first. Make note if the fluid color is dark brown and smells burnt you probably have a serious problem. If fluid is full, you probably have pump failure. Trans will need to be overhauled or replaced.

Can anyone tell me if the 98 Ford Explorer transmission first gear and reverse share the same band??


I'm showing three bands in the parts book, overdrive, intermediate, and reverse. Nothing listed for first gear.
I can't say for certain first does not use the reverse band, but it is not listed that way in the book.

Windstar Minivan - starts, will not reverse, only forward


Needs a Trans most likely, known to fail around 100k miles. Maintenance very important and correct fluid on these. At the Dealer the price used to be around $2,000.00 , aftermarket shops around half that, FIND a REPUTABLE shop.

Check your transmission fluid level if at all possible. If your fluid is low you won't be able to engage any gears as there isn't enough pressurized fluid to shift the clutch or selector in the transmission box. If that's fine, next check the selector link and check it is connected to the transmission (not totally unheard of for it to come loose). Still no joy then it's the clutch...sorry.
