Just a couple of things to check if you haven't compare the smell and apearance of the tranmission oil to so new, if it looks dark and smell burned you probably have a bad transmision, clutches or burned up. Does it whine or make any noise? a stopped up filter will do this. also is it full when warm on the dip tick runniing in park?

HI. the most important issue here is to make sure the transmission fluid is at a optimal level. If the fluid level is good, it can be another problem that is causing this disruption. The second place i would check would be the transmission shift cable and linkage. if you have some play in the shifter, this could be the issue. the linkage and cable may need to be adjusted. The last problem spot with this tranny could be bad or malfunctioning shift solenoids. these devices receive signals from the emc that initiates the shift action once you use the shifter. if one of these solenoids are malfunctioning, it can cause a disruption of normal shifting. i would check these areas.
please rate and god bless...

I believe that reverse is operated by a brake band. So it seems to be stuck. It is operated by a piston, and the seal could have swelled and caused too much friction. But you could loosen up the adjustor so that it is disengaged, in order to get forward gears again. Perhaps you can force the piston to retract as well, once you drop the pan again.

Call a dealer about a new recall. There is another problem in the cruise control that is making it hard to put a vehicle into reverse. There are also problems with brake lights and dash indicators for the ABS all caused by the cruise control. This includes about 16 million various Ford products.

change the fluid and filter in the transmission ASAP and that should take care of your problem. if you drive it too long like that you may not be able to save it.
