Check you ehaust system.

There is a expansion/flex pipe right under the engine and it sounds like that may have busted on you.

When you are going forward the pipe is in one position and when you put it in reverse, that pipe is shifted into another position.

My expedition wont drive foward but will drive in reverse what could the problem be


Sounds like you lost a solenoid or two in the transmission. Worse case would be burnt clutches or bands. It needs to be on a scanner to tell for sure. A code reader will only pick up a generic 700 code. Not the codes you need to know. Plus with a scanner you can command solenoids on and off and tell if they are working.

when you say you checked the rear end for problems and things appeared good did you check the rear end internally to see if there is a broken gear tooth or metal in the differential oil.i`ve one were this was the problem(a broken gear) that would get caught and stop the forward motion or make it hard to turn.i`ve also had it were the rear brakes were causing a forward motion problem like your having.the shoes were rotating so far when the drum was turning then apply and lock up until it was put in reverse.just some things to check out.if things were working good with the rear drive shaft removed and the problem starts with it in then the problem is in the back end some where as mentioned above.

Sound like a transmission problem or at the very least a differential problem. The only way to know for sure is to have it looked at by a pro.

The compressor will seize if not cycled once in a while.If you know it's bad and are not going to use it then replace the drive belt to an engine the same as yours that does'nt come with a/c.Check you belt tensioner to make sure it still moves and has good tension.

TRANSMISSION COMES OUT OF DRIVE WHEN I STOP THE CAR


Start with a complete flush of the trany and torque converter, and a filter replace. That should fix the problem, but the Taurus has a bad reputation for trany's going out frequently.
