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?

In turbo hydro 700 why would forward gears make the rear wheels go in reverse


Your differential is upside down. Ford model T's had the same problem. It was possible to mount the rear axle upside down which made the car go forward in reverse and backward in forward gears.

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.

It sounds like the linkages have let go. If this is the case, then drive it to a repairer straight away. If you turn the vehicle off you might not get it started again.

Loss reverse gear in 98' Explorer XLT


Most repair shops will only do a complete rebuild. Reason is, they have a guarantee attached, and corporate policy dictates they cannot repair a partial problem. There is some merit to their logic, as in...most transmission (automatic) problems have a source...which may quickly disable or break another band or drive servo if there is no complete rebuild.

As for price, parts alone would only run $50-75, for standard reverse band...labor would still be full price...because they will still charge for removal and installation, and have to remove several other servos and bands to get to the reverse band.

Have the linkage checked first. If your shifter is 1/8" off, you can totally miss reverse.
