97 mountaineer will not move in reverse


Could be the rear Emergency brakes are binding. Jack up the rear of the vehicle, put it in neutral and attempt to turn the rear wheels by hand.

You do not have to use the Emergency brakes to have problems with them. The linings fall off the metal shoe and bind up on the turning drum within the rear rotor. Then when the direction of rotation changes, the remaining brake linings regroup and jam the other way.

Sometimes the loose lining jams into small bits, pulverized, and sometimes form large chunks that jam the brakes.

Another potential problem you can check with the rear wheels off the ground and in neutral is the U-joints on the driveshaft. Popping is a symptom of play in the joints. Binding is a possibility but the joint is close to breaking at this point.

if you have a chip in your key you may what to have the ignition lock checked,there are contacts in the ignition that read the chip, sometimes they get stuck and dont pop out and read the key, this in turn doesnt turn on the fuelpump,look inside switch with a light and use a small pic, push on each sensor and it should pop back out if not try spraying a little wd40 on it and work it free by push it gentle until it pops out there are two sensors you will see them at the begining on the key hole.
