I have a 95 explorer, auto trans, manual case, open dif. Today i was backing up and it stopped suddenly. Now it will drive forward but not an inch in reverse. When i drive forward its like im hauling a trailer. I jacked up the rearend and if i lock one tire with the trans in nuetral the other tire will spin forward but not backwards. And its difficult to move. The trans feels like it goes into reverse and is definately putting a strain on the motor if you try to go backwards but won't move an inch.

Update: i dropped the driveshaft. The tranny is junk
