As funny as it may sound in alot of instances it must be reset. try turning the key on and off about 60 -70 times. seems rough on the starter but has worked for me in the past. not sure if it works on fords but works well on all mopars.

My ford explorer 1998 won't go in reverse. I have transmission fluid in it.


My 1988 Explorer would not go in reverse either after the trans was just rebuilt about a year before. Turned out it was the transfer case. Unfortunately it cost as much as getting the trans rebuilt. I thought the transfer case was just for the 4 wheel drive but it has something to do with the reverse as well believe it or not. Hope that helps.

My 98 ford explorer won't go in reverse... it will drive forward and go into lower gear but not reverse...is this gonna be a big tranny job????


I know this sounds stupid but will it back up if you put it in 4wd low? If yes its a transfer case problem. If no, they the transmission will need rebuilt. Also can you push the vehicle forward or backward in park?

When i put my 95 explorer in reverse it makes a grinding noise in transfer case and wont move all other gears fine


automatic or manual transmission? if manual then the first gear fork is bent if automatic then there is trouble in the valve body which means that you have to have the transmission rebuilt

My Explorer will not change from 1st gear. What should I do first?


Have you checked the tansmission fluid?

Fluid may be low, or the filter may be plugged.

Or worst case your transmission needs rebuilt; this is most likely the case.

the transmission is loseing internal fluid pressure, its time for a rebuilt transmission. The A4ld that your explorer has is prone to trouble in this area. A good rebuilt transmission may cost at least $1700 dollars.

1994 ford explorer


The first thing you need to fix is the fact that it will not go into park. I think the shift lever is maladjusted. There should be a way to adjust it near the transmission. Get this dealt with because I am thinking it could be a simple problem. If after you get it adjusted, it still does not immediately kick in to drive, then I think you have a serious tranny problem. You did not say how many miles were on the car, but if it has high miles (more than 100,000) and it has not ever been rebuilt, then it will probably need to be. The trannys in these Explorers were notoriously bad.
