1995 bronco transmission trouble

i bought this 1995 bronco the other day to be my off road toy. being a bowtie guy "sorry just stating my automotive knowledge" i dont have much experience with ford transmissions. i drove this truck home and everything was fine. parked it in front of the house and went back out to take my wife for a drive and i had no forward gears. put it in reverse and the trans engages and wont move. tried to push the truck back in neutral and it wont budge. push it forward and it goes. checked the fluid not burnt and full. started the truck again put it in drive and nothing. put it in reverse and gave it some gas and i heard a small pop from the rear end and she drives backwards. put it back in drive and nothing. now here is the weird thing. if i put it in 4 low and in 1st i hear the trans engage and if i rev the engine it goes backwards. WTF??? it has the 5.8 but im not sure of the trans. the truck is completely stock never molested. still has the original stereo in it. i bought it from an old guy who only used 4x4 a couple of times.

any ideas?

you most likely have an e4od. Which is a mess. I have nothing else of use to include so good luck to you.

This is a long shot, but have you checked the gear selector? i had one that did all kinds of weird s%*! because it was missing one of the bolts on the selector shaft. Also check the linkage underneath. Just a thought.
Good luck.

You have an E4OD. Start with the basics pull codes!! (here) do that first. Post back. I wonder if the shift solenoids are jacked up. You have a weird reverse so I don't think the filter fell out and into the pan. Pull codes and post back.

Do a search for adjust transmission, a ton of them come up. I think its one of the first two links...

Pull codes before adjusting the mlps. If you pull codes it can tell if the sensor needs adjusting.

The gear selector can come loose at the steering column. The linkage is also prone to coming apart. Just my $.02.

I'm thinking the same thing.

But pull those code! It can tell if the mlp is wacked up/not correct position.

yo. I agree with CATSNW on just doing the DIY Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Testing first.

There are two types of Tests, Key On Engine Off (KOEO) & Key On Engine Running (KOER).

The Link provided goes to Ryan M's KOEO portion of the test; Ryan needs to include a Hot Link someday to the KOER portion which is @ http://www.fordfuelinjection.com/?p=94


The engine temperature must be greater than 50F (10C) to pass the KOEO Self-Test and greater than 180F (82C) to pass the KOER Self-Test.

Run it around to heat the engine up and try to shift thru all gears incl Reverse. Then turn off all accessories/lights, etc.

Make sure A/C is off and transmission is in Park (automatic)

Do Key On Engine Off (KOEO) portion first.

Look Codes up in my broncolinks.com site using the new Search function if in a hurry.

And Post em here according to:
KOEO
& KOER


--
Is the Transmission Control Indicator Light (TCIL) (overdrive off/on Button and LED on end of shifter stalk Blinking?

Is Check Engine Light (CEL) ON all the time?

It should light up briefly when first starting the Bronco.
