Hello,
This is a common problem on this vehicle. Ford even put out a TSB (technical service bulletin) to all dealers explaining the problem with the reverse gear and the reverse idler gear. I dont know if it falls into any warranty but i sure would call Ford about it.
Below is the TSB Ford sent out for you to read and better understand the problem. Copy and paste the link to a new window to view. It is a PDF file.

Hi,
I see that you have viewed my last reply. Is there a problem using the rating system?? We experts do not get any credit for helping you unless you give us a good rating for sharing our experience and info with you. If you are having trouble just let me know please.
