Question about 2000 Ford F150 Flareside SuperCab

1 Answer

My 2000 F-150 has reverse but no drive, 1st or 2nd gears.

My wife's truck has been having problems with her transmission for about two months. You can put it in gear and it barely moves forward. I have been keeping an eye on the fluid to make sure it had the correct amount and not to over fill the crank case. Do you think it is a sensor, because I still can go in reverse. If so, where is the sensor?

    Yes, I think you're correct because the fluid is not bright red and today it was harder to put into reverse. Good Job, thanks

It sounds like you may have to pull the trany >>Tork converter problems << it takes less pressure to go in reverse than forward on a automatic>> pull the tranny pan replace the filter in side change oil and filter about 40 bucks look for shavings on old filter if there are some save the old filter to show the mechanic that is going to make the repairs..
pull the dip stick does the oil smell burnt this is another clue

hope this helps please leave great feedback

How do I fix the transmission problem? The car is moving forward at neutral, drive and low gear, and switching to parking mode at reverse and parking. The car is not backing up at all.

Transmission may now be toast since you continued to drive it when maybe low on fluid or torque converter had failed. How long since last fluid and filter change? Ever?

Possible transmission problems

It definitely sounds like the transmission. If you haven't had the transmission fluid and filter changed I would recommend having that done. I also recommend the Lucas transmission oil which will help alleviate (within reason) slipping issues.

Reverse Gear is Sluggish and makes noise.

I would say you should re check if you have 2nd and 4th. If not you need to have the sun shell replaced in the transmission. this is a comon problem. I hope this helps.
Thank You,

Check your rear emergency brakes. A brake shoe pin could have broke and the shoe locks up in 1 direction. but not the other. The other problem you mentioned could happen, but if it is in reverse the trans shifted.
