FORD THUNDERBIRD BALL JOINT PROBLEM

1997 Ford Thunderbird • 240,847 miles

I recently had my upper control arm, ball joints on both sides, rack and pinion repaired. After all of the repairs, I now have problems with the
gears, shifting only in reverse. It will not shift in 1st, 2nd or drive. Would any of these repairs have anything to do with my not shifting into drive
1st. Or 2nd gear?

Would deeply appreciate your oponion. Thanks.

I asked the same question earlier today and made a donation. I received an email for my donation but no reply.
Will I get an answer also by email? Thanks.

Sorry, you did not get an answer.

No, none of the repairs have any bearing on those repairs. If you have reverse and no forward, the front clutch pack has failed inside the trans. It will have to come out and be repaired.
