    My 1992 Ranger same problem. No one believes me because I just had the clutch and slave cylinder replaced. I will check the hydrollic fluid again, but I have been keeping an eye on it and it had not been low. Now, I pulled off the highway and it started not wanting to diengage. But, if i kind of push the truck to joggle it a bit it lets me slip it into at least a gear (sometimes first, sometimes third) but i cannot switch between gears easily. Just had the clutch and slave cylinder done like 300 miles ago. Hmmmm.

The most likely cause of your problem is a hydraulic system problem. Your clutch system works off of hydraulic pressure and if there is a leak or it ran out of fluid it will cause the problem you have. The first thing to do is check the master cylinder to be sure that it is full of fluid. If it is not then you have a leak somewhere.
You could have a problem with either your master cylinder or slave cylinder.

My clutch pedal goes all the way to the floor . Could this cause decrease in power


A clutch pedal normally does go all the way to the floor. If you can shift gear without a crunch, it is disengaging OK.

The loss of power could mean the clutch plate is worn and is slipping when engaged. There is a crude test for this. Start the engine and idle it. Apply the footbrake firmly, depress the clutch and put the gearbox in 3rd. Let the clutch out slowly. If the engine does not immediately stall, the clutch needs replacing.

Car will not engauge into 1st or 2nd gear


the gear grinding noise is because the clutch plate is not fully disengaging and the input shaft is still driving. If you did not use the same length of push rod then the slave cylinder is not moving enough to disengage the clutch. Check it out that with the pedal on the floor the piston in the slave cylinder should be almost to the edge of the slave cylinder . That is where It should be to be working properly

2000 ford zx2 shift for issues


Can you verify that when you push the clutch pedal to the floor the slave cylinder is moving the pin that goes between the slave cylinder and the clutch fork. It sounds like the clutch is not releasing properly.

Cant shift unless i compression shift


Chances are pretty good your clutch is toast ! If your truck has a hydraulic clutch , in which mine doesn't , get a friend to pull the boot off of the clutch fork , and with a light , make sure it is disengaging the clutch at all . If you have a mechanical clutch , simply adjust it out til the problem goes away . Look forward to a new clutch very soon ! good luck !!
