Question about 2006 Ford Explorer

Open Question

2006 Ford Explorer reverse gear engages with a ****

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 2002 ford explorer transmission shifts hard

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.

Got a 1997 Explore, in the UK. After a long drive 200 kms, got back to London. Tried to park, but NO REVERSE Gear. Called breakdown services, they think its's the 'converter' i


if only the reverse is affected it will not be the converter,if you have no drive in any gears yes the converter drive splines may have stripped but when it happened on my 89 nissan skyline wagon a loud bang was heard when this occurred and i doubt you would have missed this,most likely a snapped reverse band

Can anyone tell me if the 98 Ford Explorer transmission first gear and reverse share the same band??


I'm showing three bands in the parts book, overdrive, intermediate, and reverse. Nothing listed for first gear.
I can't say for certain first does not use the reverse band, but it is not listed that way in the book.

2006 explorer will not go into gear after towing. Shift selector goes to all positions but gears will not engage. Is this an easy fix or does it need to be taken to a dealer?


You do not ,ever have to go to a dealer, with any vehicle.

There are 200,000 local repair shops in the country.

I would take it to a trans repair shop.

WHY SHOULD MY REVERSE GEAR NOT ENGAGING ?


it sounds like the gear linkage could just need adjusted.try slackening the gear linkage then see if you can get reverse,if so keep it in reverse as you tighten it back up and should be problem solved.bear in mind you will have to make sure it goes into all your forward gears aswell,if not just repeat the process until you get it right.this could take 2 or 3 times but worth it in the end other than paying a main dealer to do the job.

It sound like the gear linkage isn,t set up right, you wouldn,t always be able to engage a gear unless you rocked the car.
