No reverse is almost always an internal problem (no external fix), and is usually a problem with the reverse drive shell, such as stripped splines.

Ford crown victoria 99 won't go forward goes in reverse

You have a 4r70w transmission and more than likely a forward drum failure has occurred, seeing as reverse still works fine and no forward engagement. This is not an electrical problem, it is a hard part failure and the transmission will need to be disassembled to repair it. Forward drum failures are one of the more common failures in these transmissions. 4r70w no forward gears only reverse help needed Ford Truck Enthusiasts...

1992 ford explorer, parked at night and next day would not go for

check transmission fluid level! warm it up and run it through all the different positions from park to first... do this a couple of times... check the level now in park while running! if low add half bottles of tranny fluid at a time "dont" over fill it. now repeat the selection process again in all different positions. if the level is good... then you may have to take it to a shop and have it looked at.

Transmission only goes in reverse

Most likely the forward gear has broken that means you need a rebuild or a new transmission ......But thats my opinion I had the same thing happen to me and most of the time it works only in reverse that means the forward gear has broken....Hope this helps and sorry for the bad news....

Automatic trans slips 92 ford explorer

I would have the transmission check if you plan on keeping the car a long time. The lucas oil is an additive for the oil. The additive is making the fluid a little heavier and tricking the soleniods or clutch and bands with a different pressures.

This is a temporary fix. The transmission over time is going to start to slip more and more.
