May be blown gaskets on solenoid assembly. Reverse servo not getting fluid pressure from solenoid. Remove valve assembly and check reverse servo for condition. Check seals and replace gaskets and filter.

Bad transmission. if it shifts through gears going forward but will not do anything in reverse it is most likely a bad transmission. reverse is usually the first gear that goes out .

SOURCE: 98 Ford Explorer won't move in reverse

Sometimes it may just be the fluid level, if you have drive , drive it around the block a few times, then park it on level ground and hold the brake and go through all the gears slowley, two times. put it in park, open the hood and check the fluid level, the dip stick in the back by the fire wall, take it out and clean it, read the stick. SOME need to be checked in Nutral, if this is the case do so but be carefull that the truck has stopped moving when put in nutral!!! if it is low only put in the right fluid, and a little at a time, while it is still running DO NOT OVER FILL !!!!!!!! Also sometimes it is a SENSOR problem, and in most cases not to hard or costly to replace.

Sad to say but your automatic transmission has bit the dust.

SOURCE: my ford explorer reverse do not work

change the fluid and filter in the transmission ASAP and that should take care of your problem. if you drive it too long like that you may not be able to save 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?

The Solenoid Pack in trans may be clogged up,now you got coolant in there. You flushed the trans I assume and could replace the solenoid control pack, but it will cost you 332.00 wholesale at trans supply house. After that it is out with trans and new clutches. How long did you drive not knowing you had coolant in the trans?

My car wont move forward or reverse


Chances are is that the torque converter needs to be replaced. However, the transmssion on this vehicle are only serviceable by transmision shops. No regular mechanic will open up the transmission. When the torque converter fails (clutch and plates shutters to small pieces) the debri flows in the transmision thereby potentially destroying the gears and/or clogging the filter and pump. Go straight to a reputable transmission shop and let them correctly diagnose the transmission.

2001 Ford E250 transmission has no reverse gear, when placed in reverse, the vehicle drives forward. Is the transmission faulty, or can it be a lesser problem?


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.
