    I have a 94 f250 automatic. Cant shift into reverse only get drive. Gear shifter moves very easily like its not connected to something. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.

    look on the driver side of the tranny, look for the shifter linkage. its black and attached to a cable. it kinda just pops on. if that is connected, then while your under looking at it safely have someone in the rig move the shifter through the gears. if it dosent move you most likely have a busted shifter cable, if it moves and still dosent kick into gear, time for a new E4ODpayup these are the most likely scenarios. good luck

    The same thing hapened to my 95. Look under the steering column. Wiggle the shifter around and you will see where it SHOULD attach with some brass colored bolts. I figured out what my problem was when I looked at the floor mat and saw a shiney new bolt and had no idea where it came from. It worked its way loose. Screwed it back in and everything was golden from then on.
