Question about 1988 Ford Ranger
The truck will go in drive and neutral, but it will not go in reverse. I took it to a shop and they got a "Output Shaft Speed Sensor" alert. They also did a transmission service but it changed nothing. We drove the truck to the shop, my husband put it in reverse again to see if it was working. It went in reverse this time but it was sluggish and moving very slowly in the gear. They told us that we need a new transmission but I'm wondering if there could be another solution.

The weld on the manual lever is known to break loose. First, with the wheels off the ground, with the lever in the park position, does the drive shaft lock in park? If yes or no sometimes, drop the trans pan. I bet the nut on the lever camd loose.
