50 horse 4 stwont go into reverse gear due to shaft problems


the drive shaft just drives a pinion gear in the prop box that drives to gears that spin in opposite directions all the time
by selecting forward with the selector rod , a dog gear is moved forward to mesh with one gear that is turning or moves the other way to engage the other gear that is turning
that is the forward or reverse action for the prop
if you have forward but no reverse the it is not a drive shaft problem but a selector rod adjustment that is not moving the dog far enough to engage the running gear

Reverse it took a few seconds to engage into gear to move when it moved I put it in drive and went forward then a small thumb occur and the motor stopped what


Does it kill the motor when you try to put it in gear now(fwd or rev)? Sounds like the torque converter clutch. Transmission part. Usually at about 150,000 miles. Hope that helps.

Why would a vehicle in reverse move forward


The question is a little vague but I think I know what your referring to. All modern automatic transmissions have torque converters. This is the device that connects the engine to the transmission. All vehicle manufacturers like the trans to be nice and smooth shifting. That's great but it does come with some minor drawbacks. If you are facing slightly down hill and you put your car in reverse but do not step on the gas slightly I can guarantee that you will indeed roll forward. You can eliminate that issue by holding your left foot on the brake while you shift into reverse. Then, as soon as you feel the trans engage, gently depress the gas pedal with your right foot and it will eliminate that forward roll problem.

No forward engagement in drive position

Ford e-250 transmission problems


My Econoline 250 with 4.2 lost fluid from hose leak, fixed leak everything was normal for 3 days till I drove it on highway. When it went into overdrive lost forward power. Turned off OD and did ok for a while. Lost forward gears slowly, put in fluid, hard to tell when full. Reverse is fine but have to rev up engine to get forward to engage, then everything is fine at lights and such till take out of drive, then have to rev engine to about 2500rpm to engage drive. Help?

Sounds like your just low on transmission fluid my friend. Check the fluid level with engine running and I park. If nothing or very little on the dipstick, put in the required amount of proper fluid to bring it up to the full mark on the dipstick.
