Exclamation 91 escort transmission problems

My car will start but will go forward or backward. What could be the problem? Also, if I have to replace the transmission, what tools would I need?

Did you re read your post? I think you meant to say that it will NOT go forward or backwards...right?

Your post is too minimalistic. You don't even say what kind of car you have, the engine size, nor if it is an automatic or manual.

Do you really think you have the ability to do this kind of work? Seriously? Because if someone goes to great lengths with details, I'm sure they'd like to know if you really, seriously plan on tackling this yourself.

The sound of your post just doesn't sound like you are up to the task. That's just my opinion, anyway. To tackle sophisticated mechanical endeavers, one must be detail oriented, and the post is not. That's why I have formed this opinion. Sorry to be offended, but that is my gut feeling.

'91 Escort, Dave.

I agree with Dave. It would be one of those jobs that if you have to ask, it's probably above your ability. Have it checked by a reputable shop, but frankly if it needs a tranny you are likely going to be over the value of the car.
