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

No reverse gear


Your transmission is shot! Could be many different components inside the transmission. Start by checking your transmission fluid. check it with the car idling in park. look for a dark color or burnt odor. the fluid should be a light red color. You will have to go see a transmission specialist to get a few diagnostic tests done first, modern transmissions are extremely complex items and many special tools are required, this work is usually well beyond the home mechanic to attempt.-----------

1998 ford explorer runs fine in drive but in reverse engine only revs as if it were in neutral. Is it the shift cable or the transmission?


to make sure which one disconnect the cable and with your hand click all the way to the front, start the engine have someone in the vehicle with the parking brake on and their foot on the brake the manually put it in reverse, if still no reverse its the transmission.

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?

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

Acts like it is in neutral when shifted into Drive AND when on the road it resists changing gears smoothly.


check the linkage from gearstick to gearbox .if ok .check and change transmission fluid

Transmission won't come out of reverse


your Transmission is controlled by a cable on the mustang. it could have Came off of the transmission. it just snaps on to a lever on the transmission. or the cable broke. other wise it came unhooked from your shifter.

94 Ford Taures dies in reverse


How is the car when put in drive? Does it almost stall or does it run fine? Almost sounds like a transmission problem. Reverse and drive put the same exact load on the engine when sitting still, so it seems unlikely it could be anything but a transmission problem. Maybe the transmission range switch is out of adjustment or bad.
