Question about 1996 Ford Contour
Car will go into park, neutral, and reverse...but will not go into drive or 1st 2nd. Could this be the shift solenoid?
I had the same problem, i had a completely blown transmission (minus reverse) and $1000, time for shipping and 15+ hours of my time later, i had a used transmission installed and it runs again. sounds like your transmission may be shot but take it to aamco first to be sure. they may tell you it has one simple problem and can be repaired. mine, not so much it was gonna cost $2700 to repair. hope your story has a far different ending!!

In 9 out of 10 cases when I see this problem in the ranger, it is the planetary gear in the transmission. It is made of the cheapest metal available. It breaks usually from going to park before the truck stops or switching from reverse to drive while still rolling. Just a Idea , But I hope it isn't that . Reverse will work fine for a while, and have no forward gears.
