Check the fluid level but this sounds like a serious transmission problem. I am surprised the transmission has lasted several months in this state. Have the problem checked by a transmission shop or a shop familiar with Ford products.
I have the same problem with my sons car. he just got it. its a 2005 Police interceptor model. and all the sudden he lost reverse. then as he was driving down road all the sudden he had nothing no drive at all. He coasted to side of road and discovered now all he had was Reverse. Whats up with that. I don't see if the guy got it fixed and if so what it was? My son cant take it to a shop because he spent all he had on the car and a day later all that happened. so that answer of taking it in to a shop was not a good one. besides that what I thought this website was for.
