If it acts like neutral in reverse, the low/rev band is likely broken. I've seen it before. If everything is good forward. Pulling trans is the only way to fix it

this is always caused by a failed/worn out reverse clutch pack, you must remove the trans and have it overhauled to correct this failure.

Unfortunately it sounds like you have some internal transmission damage. When reverse wont function in your vehicle, it is fairly common that the reverse clutch plate in the transmission ha sworn the teeth off the gear. Once you have the transmission fixed, make sure you come to a complete stop when backing up before going forward. That is usually the action that will cause the theeth to wear off the clutch plate

The first thing to go in a transmission is usually reverse. Find the cheapest place to have it rebuilt before the rest goes. Alternatly you can try to replace the transmission filter. Fords usually have a 12 bolt tranny pan and the kit comes with filter and new gasket. Also, u may lose a few quarts of fliud after you remove the pan.

DIsconnext and reconnect the linkage at the transmission. You may want top replace the linkage cable all together. Make sure you set the parking break and block the tires
