Question about 1989 Ford Ranger

89 ranger transmission

The tags are missing from tranny and I need to get another tranny. Because it seems to be so high geared in 1st, Im guessing it is not the original trans. My engine is 2.3L, four speed trans with overdrive. How do I identify this trans.

The trans gearing is all the same, the rear end gear set is where final drive ratio is determined

Transmission


I am guessing an automatic. Drain the tranny and clean the governor. Replace and refil the fluid. Inexpensive if you reuse the fluid and not too time consuming.

92 geo metro with automatic transmission will not go out of 1st gear sometimes


my guess is its not electric shifted, (what trans model is it)
so step 2 in the FSM book says.... and i paraphrase
step1 is stall test (my guess passes in 1st and reverse)
step 2, line pressure test?
if that fails, tranny is bad.

1989? When was the last time the Transmission was drained and new Transmission Fluid (oil) put in?
This Fluid (oil) loses viscosity and get particles in it causing additional loss in viscosity. I would go to even having the transmission drained and FLUSHED (cleaned) and new Fluid (oil) put in. Recheck the operation.
Boyles and Charles Laws are applicable here: (P*V)/T. Heat causes the Fluid to Heat and Expand (in molecules) but because of the limited sealed volume (transmission case) this increases Pressure allowing the smoother shifting and placement into gears.
Change the Transmission Fluid (oil) and have the Transmission Flushed (cleaning the insides) and your problem should go away.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have any additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Transmission going bad?


popping out of gear means your shifting forks need adjustment, same as the grinding. the tranny is probably good, just the top part, the shifting mechanism needs to be repaired, so it would be cheaper to repair than rebuilding the whole transmision.still, im guessing about 300-500$ depending where you live.

Transmission downshifts hard when I let off the gas at slow speeds


Transmission sensor.your gear ratio was not set up properly..Its supposed to be mapped out soo the tranny shifts at a neutral rpm(around 2500-3400 rpm) its punching into gear correct?could have been a rebuilt tranny in which case they just replace the current problem..Or it could be a flywheel.1st thing to get done is to change the transmission fluid and filter.Goto midas or somewhere like they and they call it a flush and fill and it costs around $160 which is best case scenario.

89 ranger wont start


Neutral safety switch is my best guess (about 98% sure on this one) It is located somewhere on the transmission (sorry about the vagueness). It prevents you from starting your vehicle in gear. If left unplugged the truck will not start at all. All I can include is a picture of the top (connection) on the switch if it is of any help.
