Customer had a similar problem with a 99 Windstar. Stopped pulling while driving it. Had it towed to me and I replaced the torque convertor. Problem fixed.

Check or change transmission fluid and filter

reverse gear going out is a good indication the rest will go out soon. yes you need to change entire transmission, or have your transmissin rebuilt. a mechanic will not just rebuild reverse .it will be complete rebuild or replacement

on the top of the transmission it is very hard to get to i just got mine changed at a shop and i watched the guy change it.

Since you have to drop the pan in order to change the filter, follow the instructions in the "Related Question" below...

Remove the driveshaft from the back of the transmission. Remove the rear transmission plate. Remove the transmission seal with a seal puller. Reverse the process to install the new transmission seal.

Yes, yes and yes!!!The number one reason for people to have to spend $1600-2000 for a rebuilt transmission is:Failure to change the transmission fluid!The Ford maintenance schedule specifies a 30,000 mile interval for fluid / filter changes.Did I mention it's a good thing to change your transmission fluid?See "Related Questions" below for more

The transmission is messed up, try playing between neutral/reverse and drive, my old Hyundai excel did that and the transmission did a weird sound then went back OK, but not for long. Recommended to change it.

I am curious to know which oil you changed. Usually when one says oil change, they are referring to the engine oil. When referring to a transmission, one usually says they are doing a transmission fluid change. You mention the oil came out red. Red is the color of transmission fluid. I'm wondering if you drained the transmission fluid thinking you were draining the engine oil. If so, the transmission is empty and that would be the reason for no reverse or drive gears.

It's probably the transmission, either the valve body or the clutch pack. Either way, it means a rebuild of the transmission.

If you have an automatic transmission then either the linkage is fouled up or you got a internal problem. That's 100 vrs about 3000 dollars.

Most likely you will have to change transmission... Or you can hire a mechanic to fix it for you but it will cost somewhere in between $1-3K.

Change your transmission oil it happen to me . And have your mechanic check the transmission you might have metal shavings in the transmission which is really bad.

I have a 2000 with over 180000 miles, and it works fine. 3.8 liter. Original fuel pump! Oil change every 5000 miles. Transmission oil change per factory recommendation. The 1998 Windstars tend to have transmission problems.

For anyone removing a transmission, you really really should have a Chiltons or Haynes service manual!!Short of that, consult online resources like's Repair Guide or some of the "for pay" repair manual services like AllData.In the meantime, the "Related Question" below covers removing a transmission from a 1995 Windstar - I suspect it is equally applicable to the 1999-2003 vintage Windstars too.

It is easier to reverse a physical change.

Do you mean "change THE transmission" or "Change the transmission FLUID"? Big difference there....

not all the time but yeah its easy to reverse a chemical change but not all the time you can reverse them

possible problems: broken engine mounts cause the engine to jerk, or tranmission fluid needs change, and possibly bad transmission.

You need to seek help immediately from a transmission professional. If you continue to drive the car with this problem you may do serious damage to the transmission.

Nope. Physical changes are easier to reverse.
