I have the same problem with my 93 explorer automatic and the problem is you can't take it to ford because the don't have the tools or the machine to test these years vehicles there tools and machines start at 1996. I had to take mine to a private mechanic. Mine would not go into gear after I took off but after taking my foot of the gas and reapplying the gas it would engage in the gear and go through all other gears fine. I just dropped mine off so I am still waiting.
Hi there,

\015\012As your Auto transmission is fully electronic, it could be anything from faulty sensors sending incorrect signals to the trans computer, or faulty internal components. Your best bet is to have the trans computer scanned for 'fault codes' (as the computer monitors and retains all faults) by your local Ford dealership.
\015\012
\015\012This process will identify the likely component/s which are causing this problem.

\015\012My guess is, there may be a problem with the 2nd clutch (yes that's right, automatics have internal clutches!), input and/or output shaft switches sending incorrect signals to the computer.

\015\012But, there could be so many other possibilities....so, I recommend you get the codes scanned and go from there.....
