I've got a 2000 explorer. My problem is that I have reverse but I don't have any forward gears. Theres no motion ,sound or any thing when shifted in any forward gear. from what i've been researching does it sound like the common valve body problem that these tend to have? I don't have the flashing O/D light on the dash.

Thanks thumper01

Possibly a forward clutch issue and could also be valve body related.

I would start with a filter and fluid change along with adjusting the bands. May want to retorque the valve body bolts also when the pan is down.

start simple
