I haven't been on Ranger-Forums in literally years... but I'm having some trouble with my 2000 Ford Ranger 4.0L Automatic. So last night, I was trying to leave my school parking lot, but I had lost reverse - I didn't hear any clicks, bangs, or anything - and I'm pretty easy on the truck. Reverse is acting the same way as neutral. In fact, there is no click or sound of shifting between reverse and neutral. Park, Neutral, Drive, 1st, and 2nd are fine. From what I've been told, this sounds like a linkage problem. Unfortunately for me, I don't know anything about transmissions or how they make their connections to the rest of the truck. Can somebody point me in the right direction? I can't afford to have the transmission worked on right now...
Thanks in advance,
2000 Ranger 4.0L w/ Camburg 5.5 and Deaver Race Pack w/ 16' RaceRunners
