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.

My exploer will not go on reverse


I just traded in a 1996 Ford Explorer ... There's your first big hint :) Next, have you ever had it in 4WD? Is the 4WD switch in the "Auto" position? Does the gear shifter move into reverse? or is it just the gear box that's not responding?
Is it Auto or Manual? (Not sure if they came in a manual, but I'm in Australia and not sure what was available in America?)

1998 ford explorer auto, 4h,4l. stuck in 4l


Hello, Try keeping your foot on the brake pedal. Then shift the gearshift to neutral and then turn the 4x4 knob to the position you wish.

If this does not work, verify your rear brake lights are working. Then look under the dash at the top of the brake pedal lever and try to position the switch so that it works.

Then go back to my opening statement.

98 ford explorer will drive but you put in in reverse will not go


It is possible that the shift linkage is out of adjustment and is going into neutral and not making it to Reverse, try moving the gear selector slowly from park, through reverse to Neutral, and see if it will go into reverse somwhere in between. If this does not work ,you may have Reverse gear failure, a common problem with explorer/ranger transmissions. unfortunatly it requires rebuilding the transmission

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.

98 Ford Explorer wont move in reverse or overdrive


Probably low oil pressure in the transmission or worn clutches.
