SOURCE: 2001 Ford E250 transmission has no reverse gear,

I would check the shifter and the linkage. Even though the shifter lever is moving, that doesn't mean it's moving the linkage on the transmission.

Very common on this make and model trans, pump drive splines inside torque converter strip out and pump is not turning, Most times there is no damage to pump shaft. Remove trans and remove torque converter, inspect the splines at the very bottom of the hub hole. If stripped out inspected pump shaft splines which are the smaller center splines coming out of trans, if ok replace torque converter and re-install trans, change out fluid, clean any metal from magnet and replace filter, fill with fluid and verify proper operation.

SOURCE: 2001 f350 v10 automatic transmission will not engage gears

You may have a shift cable on that model. If the either end of the shift cable has come loose, then the movement of the shifter will do nothing underneath your truck. You need to have a helper move the shift lever while someone goes under the truck to see if the cables move.

Some of the trucks use Electric shift Solenoids. The PCM is a Powertrain Management device and there is a relay. I imagine if this part is not working, there would be no power to activate the Electric shift Solenoids and that could explain why your truck does not move.

It sounds as if your pump pressure is quite low. there is enough pressure for the trans to work with absolutely no load on it, but not enough for it to work properly.

What would cause my transmision to not go into reverse?


Transmissions work on clutches and clutches wear out. The wear is to the point that it cannot overcome the resistance when the vehicle is on the ground. It is time for an overhaul.

My auto transmission for a Ford 2004 Escape with 2WD only engages in reverse. When problem suddenly showed up i was able to drive car in front drive by engaging 1 or 2. stopped car and all forward mov


I would have it towed to a different shop for a second opinion.
To start at the beginning, if it works in reverse but not drive the linkage is working.
When you put the transmission in low or second you are bypassing most of the sensors and valves. You put it in first or second gear and it stays there.
It could be a long list of things from the valve body to the pump to a solenoid or sensor.
There is a good chance the problem could be fixed without needing an overhaul.
You never take a knife to a gunfight, so you wouldn't have anybody but a transmission shop work on a transmission.
When they recommend an overhaul, they are pulling your trans out and replacing it with someone's rebuilt out of the crate. No worries on their part.

No reverse is the most classic symptom of a failed transmission. You must have the transmission rebuilt or replaced with a Motorcraft re-manufactured unit (my choice)

I have seen a problem with torque convertors on these vehicles, they will just all the sudden neutral out and that is it no noise no codes nothing... alot of times depending on the failure of the convertor just the convertor can be changed.... what usually happens is the splines inside of the convertor sheer off and once a new convertor is put in everything is back to normal.

1989 ford probe automatic suddenly refuses to engage into reverse.


First thing I would suggest is, you check the transmission fluid level in your car. If your fluid level is adequate, then you may need to have your transmission bands adjusted or gears and/or clutches within your transmission replaced.

After reading your question again, I am unsure if you shifter will not engage reverse or the transmission will not go into reverse. Nevertheless, if the transmission will not go into reverse, even after the car warms up, then your transmission may require a serious overhaul. Try driving your vehicle for several miles and see if it goes into reverse after warming up.

The weld on the manual lever is known to break loose. First, with the wheels off the ground, with the lever in the park position, does the drive shaft lock in park? If yes or no sometimes, drop the trans pan. I bet the nut on the lever camd loose.
