My 1994 is doing the same thing out of no where! the o/d light flashes withing the first few blocks of driving. Now this morning I got back from dropping kids off and it wont go into park! i had to put is in N and use emergency brake!! All of the shops and internet are saying what you posted.. So you're thinking that there is no hope, and need a new or rebuilt transmission to hopefully solve problem?

One may not be related to the other, but your transmission needs service - the parking pin has broken, and that will need fixing anyway.

It sure could. I would have the fluid and filter changed, and see if that loosens it up. No doubt, you have a clogged valve body.

Well, the bad news is the Explorer transmission is engineered to last about 100,000 miles without service. So, the question is, have you had it serviced? You can almost double its life with regular service at each 30,000 miles, if it's done right and thoroughly.
#388 of 398 2007 explorer goes into reverse hard
Jul 25, 2013 (4:09 pm)
My 2007 explorer goes into reverse hard when it warms up .The forward gears don't do it and the rest of the trany seens fine. It is a 4x4 4.0 lt with about 150000km .
Does anyone know what causes this?

Yep. It's a bad valve body. Not that hard to replace if you know what you're doing and don't mind getting terribly dirty and grimy. Part is only a couple hundred. But it will cost you considerably more to have it done by a shop. Nevertheless, it's a really disturbing condition, and I have had it fixed before. You should too.

This is the EXACT issue that I am having and I have not been able to find the problem anywhere else but in your post. The transmission repair guys are at a loss also....any help would be so appreciated.
