1991 Ford auto trans

1991 Ford Escort 1.9L
My dads car will not go in reverse.... but works in drive
Are there any solenoids on the transaxle?
Are there any tsb on this>
Car has about 150,000 miles
Fluid level looks good
I will drop the the trans pan soon,
I think there will be clutch material.....
What years would a transaxle fit?
How the about a 1996 Escorts transaxle, is the trans OBD 2(controlled by PCM),The 1991 escort my dad has is OBD1
Can OBD2 trans work?
I called a trans place, they quote to rebuilt is 700 for

There are 4 solenoids in your transmission. The green one commonly quits working but I don't know what it controls so don't know if it is your problem.

Later units have a timing valve. Yours does not, so later units will not work. I think 95 up has timing valve, but not sure. Most later units also have more solenoids, so trying to use them will confuse your computer assuming that you can even get the wiring harness to plug in.

You probably have a TV cable to your transmission. Later units do not.

Also note that 1.8 and 1.9 units do not interchange at all. Different motor - different bell housing.

$700 for a rebuild makes me think they are cutting corners somewhere as it sounds way too cheap to me. Shops will literally go bankrupt fixing transmissions that cheaply. At that price you are definitely sacrificing quality or service or both to save a few dollars.

700 was for just taking the trans to them( i would take the trans of the car)
My brother took his 1996 Camry 2.2, the trans went bad... they charged him 1200 for a rebuilt and to remove it from the car. that was like 2 years..
Trans still works.....

www.car-part.com you can search local yards and get prices and phone numbers and see all years that interchange even.

we never have any rebuilt unless we cant find a good used one.

only twice have we had to have rebuilt, and that was a 97 c1500 4L60E at 140k miles

and also a '97 wrangler chrysler A904 3 speed auto at 75k miles

we buy all our engines and trannies used and replace for ppl,.

replaced a '97 windstar AXOD trans yesterday, got a junkyard 90k miles one for it for 400.

fixed, done
