SOURCE: 1999 ford explorer no reverse but have all foward

Unfortunately it sounds like you have some internal transmission damage. When reverse wont function in your vehicle, it is fairly common that the reverse clutch plate in the transmission ha sworn the teeth off the gear. Once you have the transmission fixed, make sure you come to a complete stop when backing up before going forward. That is usually the action that will cause the theeth to wear off the clutch plate

SOURCE: lost reverse in our 2000 ford explorer but have

I can't recall whether or not that model comes with a manual transmission or not. If it is an automatic, then you might be able to have the problem fixed. There are many sensors on a transmission, and it could be as simple as one of them malfuntioning. There could be dirt or grit clogging one of the hydrolic tunnels in the transmission that allows it to shift into reveres; this problem could possibly be fixed by having your transmission flushed. It could also be that either a band or clutch is worn out and no longer functioning properly, and if that is the case then you would have to have your transmission rebuilt. Usually worn out bands or clutches will turn the transmission fluid brown, though that can not be completely relied on as an indicator. So to start with I would have the transmission flushed and refilled. Next have a diagnostic run on the computer. After that have a transmission place look at it.

SOURCE: my 98 ford explorer won't go in reverse... it will

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?

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.

My exploer will not go on reverse

I just traded in a 1996 Ford Explorer ... There's your first big hint :) Next, have you ever had it in 4WD? Is the 4WD switch in the "Auto" position? Does the gear shifter move into reverse? or is it just the gear box that's not responding?
Is it Auto or Manual? (Not sure if they came in a manual, but I'm in Australia and not sure what was available in America?)

98 ford explorer will drive but you put in in reverse will not go

It is possible that the shift linkage is out of adjustment and is going into neutral and not making it to Reverse, try moving the gear selector slowly from park, through reverse to Neutral, and see if it will go into reverse somwhere in between. If this does not work ,you may have Reverse gear failure, a common problem with explorer/ranger transmissions. unfortunatly it requires rebuilding the transmission

Shift problems

No reverse in just about any automatic transmission is going to be a mechanical failure inside the trans.This is presuming all the forward gears are ok.I have seen on many occassions where the vehicle has no reverse and no 3rd gear and that makes sense,but is still a mechanical failure,as the direct clutches (3rd gear) are applied in reverse as well as 3rd gear,on most automatics.
