Q: transmission will not shift into drive on 1992 Ford E-150

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Backed down my driveway..Put in in Park, wanted to pull forward a bit, put it in drive, nothing. I'm guessing I have reverse put to close to wall to find out. Maybe just
gravity when I do. 25% grade on driveway.

your car may be stuck in a limp in mode where it won't shift out of direct drive. try disconnecting your battery to clear codes & checking the fluid level, if that doesn't change anything then you are likely going to have to take it in for a real diagnosis, if these transmissions don't get the inputs they want then they will often default to limp in mode which will only shift into the gears you need to get you home
