1996 Ford Ranger Question: Why wont it go in reverse

If the fluid level is correct and the shift linkage is not bent or out of adjustment then unfortunately the problem is most likely in the transmission. A fellow I work with has a similar problem with his Ranger and a transmission shop fellow told him he may be able to "fix" the transmission in the car. I forget if he said there was a gasket or diaphragm that goes out. Bring your Ranger to a transmission shop that has experience with Ford transmissions.
