Asked by Mar 05, 2015 at 02:41 PM about the 1999 Ford Explorer 4 Dr XLT SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

the transmission in my Explorer was working perfectly and one day I missed a turn-off
and put it in reverse. It did nothing. When u put it in reverse it seems to want to move but
does not. No matter if u rev the engine it will not move. I bought the vehicle last may '14,
and changed the trasmission oil and filter. The reverse simply does not work
