I was driving my 1987 Ford Ranger 2.9L 4x2 Automatic and while in first gear turning into my complex gassing it to proceed home, something popped and now my truck won’t engage any gears at all. Nothing was ever wrong with it but the lag between 3rd and OD but other than that it shifted fine and everything. Trying to see if it’s just a part I can order and fix or I need another transmission? I know it has to be something simple because it was driving and just popped out of gear and won’t engage any but the floor shifter still shifts into gears just doesn’t engage. Please help!!!!!

I moved the thread to the transmissions section for better visibility and searchablity.

I don't know enough about automatic transmissions to provide anything of use. Someone will be along that will be able to help. Welcome to the forum and good luck!

So if the shifter linkage hasn’t come apart (drivers side of the transmission is where it connects), then it could be something in the transmission. Could be about anything, torque converter, band, seal, something. If it’s anything internal to the transmission, unless it’s low on fluid, the transmission would likely have to come out to fix (about the only exception being if you blew the valve body gasket, which only means dropping the pan).
