1999 Ford Ranger 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 125000 miles
My 1999 Ford Ranger will not go in reverse. It seems to be running fine in drive. I have never had a problem with the transmission before this happened two days ago. I checked the transmission fluid level cold and after running at normal operating temperature. Fluid levels were within normal levels according to the operator's manual. The fluid is not dirty and is still red. I had the transmission fluid changed about three years ago at about 90000 miles. It was pretty dirty before it was changed. Please let me know if you can help me.
I took the truck to an auto parts store that does free diagnostic tests, but since there was no "check engine" light or any other warning lights displayed, they could not do a test. The guy at the store said since there were no warning lights, the problem might be something like a cable connection. Any ideas? I'm getting tired of looking for hills so I can use gravity to go backwards.
It is a 3.0L V6. Don't know what the transmission model code is. Where would I find it? What letters or numbers would the code start with? All the forward gears work normally.
have the same problem?
