92 Ford Explorer shifter problem?

I am posting for a buddy of mine. He has a 92 Ford Exporer "sport". It is a 5spd. He had the transmission rebuilt. me myself have never heard of any problems related to standard transmissions, but being a Ford...........ahh nevermind. ANYWAY........Here's the problem. He had it re-built and the guy said it needed a new "shifter"...in order to save money he said i'll wait. And then a month later, he couldn't shift the vehicle into any gear. Is this the so called "shifter" that went bad. Like i said, i thought standard transmissions lasted forever. I need to direct him into the right direction as far as getting his vehicle on the road again. Thanks !

Re: 92 Ford Explorer shifter problem?

could be as simple as a linkage that is obstructed. And yes the shifter could have gone bad, unlikely but it has happened. Happened in my Camaro....<--enough said there.

Re: 92 Ford Explorer shifter problem?

It's nicknamed the Ford Exploder for a good reason mate...tell him to sell it before it costs him even more.
And I do know what I'm talking about. We have one, biggest heap of shit I've ever had the misfortune to lay eyes on. Every gearbox shop I talk to reckons they chew through boxes like crazy, particularly the manuals. Ours is a 97 model auto and had 2 boxes replaced before we got it. It's not hit 250 000 km yet and is coming up due for another!

And that's before I start on the electrical issues, cost of parts, etc.


AFAIK these manuals don't use an external shifter linkage setup. I suggest the problem is most likely something to do with the shift forks inside the box, or the shifter itself.
