Question about 2006 Ford Explorer
Hi. I mentioned this to the Ford service agent and he said it happens over a passage of time and I should put the gear in neutral for a few moments before shifting to reverse. Is this the only solution? Is it going to get worse?

I would check the wiring at the plug going into the brake light switch at the pedal.If there is a bad contact there it won't shift out of park and also you'll be having an intermittent brake light problem you aren't aware of while you're driving.

You might have to try to adjust the freedom of clutch pedal,
The noise during shifting can be adressed to exessive wear clutch parts or again it might be a sign that indicates the not complete enabling the calutch
To find out what is causing the noise, set the parking brake, place the vehicle in neutral and start the engine.
If you hear growling or grinding noises when the clutch is engaged, the cause is the transmission input shaft bearing.
A squealing sound that occurs when the clutch pedal is depressed and held is usually caused by a bad pilot bearing or bushing.
A chirping noise that intensifies when the pedal is slowly depressed would indicate a bad release bearing.
If you hear chirping while idling in neutral and the noise goes away when the pedal is slowly depressed, the fork/pivot ball contact point is making the noise
Hope that helps.

SOURCE: my 1999 ford taurus wagon (automatic) will not go into gear. it comes out of park, but won't go into drive or reverse...you can just slide the shift on the column...it just slips through without stopp
Sounds like the shifter cable broke.

Check engine light on? Sounds like a bad pressure control solenoid. If it is a bad PCS. You have to replace the solenoid block in the 5R55W transmission.
