2002 Ford Explorer Won't go into gear
My 2002 Ford Explorer with a V8 engine
will not go into gear. I can shift through the
gears and it will not catch and actually go
into gear. Been told it could be the fluid or
linkage but wanted to get some opinions.
yes fluid level and condition is always the first thing to check.you can try flushing it and adding new fluid and see what happens,if that doesn't help you will need fluid pressures checked, could be a internal problem.
Check fluid make sure theres enough. Have somone move the gearshift lever though the gears,while you look at the transmission to see if the internal parts are actually gettting shifted. The "shift tube" in the column is a common problem. Google and You tube can help.
If its a floor shift remove console cover also.Make sure everything is attached
