1996 Ford Contour Question: our car only drives in reverse not in D or 1&2. What do we do to fix this?

The best(cheapest) thing to do is buy a used transmission and replace it.If someone take it a part and diagnose the problem that will cost and you end up to buy a transmission anyway. Just skip that. Save time and money.
