Question about 1992 Ford Ranger

92 ford ranger 3.0, auto trans will not go into reverse

All the other gears work fine, but reverse is non existant. I was wondering if something could be out of adjustment or if its the tranny itself. any help would be great.

Try taking the trannie pan off (drain fluid first) and get a filter kit at the parts store, about 15 or 20 dollars(easy to change) that may help, but this happens to high milage rangers. unless you have a linkage problem thats probably your only hope.

Check for codes
Check that the Selector Switch on trans is good
Change the Solenoid Pack inside trans pan

12 years is getting down the road for any trans
so the seals could be ******* the servo pistons
The valve body dirty

Best solution is to rebuild it

Wont go into reverse but drives just fine in all the other gears

no reverse is a symptom of a failed transmission reverse clutch band, to replace this band requires the trans be overhauled.

Transmission fluid stick

No the manual transmisson does not have a stick. on the transmisson their are two plugs. One for draining and one for filling. In order to check the fluid, pull the higher plug out and feel with a finger in that hole for fluid. To set the level to the correct level you would need to drain and refill the trans. If no leaks are present you should be OK
