Clutch fork is unlikely.
Tranny sensor. (plug on bottom)
Tranny could be bad.

Will not shift out first gear


I assume this is an automatic?
If the shift linkage is not damaged (jammed or disconnected the usual answer is the governer valve in the transmission is sticking.
The fix for this normally involves pulling the trans out stripping it apart cleaning the governer valve new seals gaskets and reassembling.
(translated lots of money) try using a auto trans flush to clean all the gunk out of the transmission. Run the trans through all the gears with the trans flush and try driving it (only short distance test drive as its not proper trans fluid) see if you can get it out of first gear (flatten the gas pedal and let the engine go to max revs on short bursts) once it shifts once or twice go back and remove the trans flush fluid and replace with correct specification auto trans fluid I would also change the transmission filter at this point if it was mine .

No not the whole transmission. Could be a band or servo. It still has to come out and be tore down to fix.

2002 ford explorer 4.0 v-6 transmission not shifting between 2nd and 3rd gear


Hello
The engine and transmission in this cars drivetrain are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s)

97 neon pops into nuetral when I hit 25 mph....


Sounds to me like you are having a transmission problem.  Basically your transmission has gone into "limp" mode which is why you can drive your car up to 25mph but no further.  Basically your transmission has limited it self to reverse, neutral, and 1st gear.  Take your car to a transmission shop and have it diagnosed.  Often a simple flush and fill will fix the problem, but you might need a new transmission.

Transmission shifting into nuetral


Check your fluid level. If the fluid level gets low, the pump basically pumps the pan dry in which the trans. valve body has no fluid to direct to keep in engaged in gear. Check your fluid level while running at operating temp. in nuetral. If this checks out ok, the trans. clutches are worn out to the point of the trans. no longer has the ability to stay engaged.
